Another weekend gone.....

...... but productively filled! Friday morning Bean and I got up extra early and went down to Wimborne with OH; visited the excellent Farmer's Market there. So impressed that I am going to use it for our weekly shopping from next week; coupled with what we produce ourselves, plus a regular order from the Suma wholesaler, I am going for the non-shop shopping option :0) I like a challenge....... Had a routle around the charity shops too, but found them a bit pricy. Pub lunch on way home, then usual Friday things. Saturday morning was up to Shaftesbury to collect 5 fleeces someone had acquired, not wanting them to be dumped, but she couldn't use them herself. I was alerted to this by the vicar;s wife, so they are now here, although it seems to have increased to 6 in number! Bean has purloined one of the white ones for herself, and can be seen in the photo sorting it prior to washing. Went to Dairy House antiques and Semley reclamation on the way back; acquired a yellow and white jug and a pile of books, including 3 vintage Elizabeth David books, which are lovely. Saturday afternoon was spent round the corner at a fund raising tea party for Marie Curie; I won a quiz (on tea........), so came home with a bottle of champagne, which was rather lovely for Saturday night! Yesterday was out in the garden tying up tomatoes, moving stuff, more beans, planting in the greenhouses, etc, before it came on really heavy rain, so that was that. Tea last night was huge mushrooms stuffed with goat's cheese, pesto and breadcrumbs, baked in the oven, which were lovely, served with feta and olives from the market on Friday.
