LATEST UPDATE (14 February 2018, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 16 February)
Mobile phones. A mixed blessing. The ease with which we can contact the rest of the world is both magnificent and alarming. On the good side, we can place orders, make enquiries, and chat to friends and family while carrying on with work. I have an ongoing mystery sound quiz with my mum, she has to guess what I’m doing by the background noise. She thought I was ascending into the death zone on Mount Everest the other day, but it was just my usual morning stroll with the dogs, and a very sensitive microphone picking up every gust of wind.
The downside is the phone ringing at the most inconvenient moment, but the urge to answer it still being overwhelming.
So, the top three strange circumstances to have answered a call are (in reverse order)
3: Notification of an imminent delivery while hands are covered in bread dough.
2: Chatting with my brother about battery maintenece while up an apple tree, mid pruning.
……drum roll and expectant pause…….
1:Right hand inside sheep to elbow level (there’s only one end of the sheep that allows this kind of access) left hand clutching phone for a call from South West Water about disruption to supply.
The soup this week is honey roasted parsnips, with a choice of sourdough or wholemeal bread.
Green veggies includeleeks, kale, spring greens, savoy, cauliflower and calabrese.
Look out for our range of Faith shampoos which are currently half price. We now have Aloe Vera, Grapefruit and Orange, Watermelon and Rosemary. From Faith in Nature web site “free from nasties like animal products, SLS, GMOs, parabens, artificial preservatives and scents”
Just a reminder, we will be open as usual this week, (16th Feb,) closed next week (23rd Feb,) and open again as usual the week after (2nd March.)
