The only sale I get excited about and carried away with is the end of season seed sale at the garden centre, when everything gets marked down to 50p. They dump everything into one big heap or several buckets, all mixed up. Instead of being competitive though, it turns into a cooperative game half the time; everyone’s normally looking for something specific, plus whatever else looks interesting, so I generally check what everyone else is after, in case I find it, and it turns into a big gardening discussion with total strangers. I do try and be there in the first day, before all the best stuff’s gone.
In a big year, I might spend as much as £10 :eek: getting enough seeds to keep me going all through the next summer.
Laazy start this morning; I’m not playing with tiny plants today 'cos the lady running the place has a meeting 'til 2, but I was planning on going to the garden centre to play with bigger ones.
That’s been a bit scuppered by me not getting to sleep til really late last night, then when I finally did, not waking up 'til 10.30. By the time I got properly up, it was practically lunch time.
I’m a bit concerned as well 'cos my phone suddenly went totally flat overnight, from 100% to dead, which is a new one. I keep it in the room as an alarm, though I hadn’t set to today, 'cos I was planning on a bit of a lie in, if not one that long; I never play with it and on the rare occasion it goes off it’s almost always something I need to know, like my boss phoning to change a shift, but if it’s gonna start doing that, that’s a problem.
