We were proper grockles today and went on a day trip out, to go on the horse drawn barge on the Grand Western Canal.
As it was fairly close, we also popped into coldharbour mill and ‘accidentally’ bought four more bags of thrums (lengths of scrap yarn). oops
The barge trip itself was really nice; relaxing and interesting, and fairly quiet. There was some touristy aspects to it, naturally, and I could not help thinking that although all very quaint that the people were wearing olde worlde clothes.. horse drawn barges might be the way of the future.. what with peak oil etc.
Despite sitting for the journey – we are all very tired now. Came home, picked cabbage, mountains of peas, and a fair few tomatoes., did the animal checks and other chores, had a nice comfort food dinner of sausage and egg pie (childhood favourite food of himself’s – basically cooked sausages, boiled eggs, boiled potatoes, all cut up, smothered in cheese sauce) with heaps of peas – (own sausages, eggs spuds and peas !), I’ve worked my little part time job,
and now.. a little chilling with yarn. I seem to have even more of it … somehow…
