Yes I know, I think I would get D - for my blogging at the moment. What can I say? Still clearing the attic, it is embarrassing the amount of stuff up there! Anyway by Bank Holiday Monday I was so grumpy about the whole thing that the bearded one decided to get me out of the house for an hour (to save his own sanity I think as I had been snapping at him all weekend). I had wanted to go to Potager Garden for a while after hearing about it from friends and this was the perfect opportunity. It is over on the south coast where our new home (hopefully) will be, so we thought we would explore the area.
It's a lovely little garden with a cafe, there is a lovely 'feel' to the place, all very 'hippyish' which suits me down to the ground. I especially loved the wall built out of logs, my sons partner has said he will make me one when we move, probably not to this scale though!
Coffee, cake and a stroll around the garden getting ideas for our new home set me on the path back to a happy Chickpea. People thought I was a bit strange photographing the compost heaps and chicken run but it is all research. The cafe is lovely with a glasshouse next to it where you can play table tennis and extra seating so that even if the weather is miserable you can sit surrounded by exotic cacti. It lives up to it's name by growing veg for the cafe, potager meaning kitchen garden.
If you are in the area go and pay a visit and give them your support in developing this little oasis of calm and community. I'm sure I will be visiting often.
House news - I'm about to get quotes from removal firms, it's been 15 years since the last move so I think I will have to sit down with a stiff drink afterwards! I'm still prodding the bank and conveyancers to get things moving, why do things take so long?
I'm confused this morning, blogger is telling me something about changes in HTTPS settings. My poor brain can't take in anymore information at the moment. Can anyone translate this into English for me?
