Good morning guys and gals. Hope all is hanging well?
I have been gadding about in this lovely weather . . . . . . . I feel the urge to gad when I'm feeling well. Not major gadding, just to the local garden centre or retail park.
Will be gadding to the dentists on Friday morning as part of one of my teeth decided to fall off yesterday. Thankfully, its one of the back teeth so fortunately, I don't have the look of Steptoe about me (well, not in the dental department anyway, lol!!!).
Hopefully meeting John for lunch today. The lure of a 33% off voucher at the Harvester was too strong for us. At least it should, in theory, be a healthier lunch than the Maccy Ds last week, with the lovely salad bar.
Have been chomping on yummy cauliflower couscous for the last couple of days. I just blitz the cauli florets in a food processor and add grated carrot and radishes, diced cucumber, chopped baby corn, sultanas, pistachios, flaked almonds and a dressing of EV olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Its lovely topped with diced feta cheese.......ummmmm!!!
All chomping now on the right hand side until I've visited the dentist.
Now, enough of the cookery lesson. Today, we have number 9 of John's show samples. There are only 11, so don't think its like the Christmas overload again lol!!! (though, I think there are still a couple of festive ones lurking I'm afraid).

Hadn't done the triple stamping thing for a while so thought I'd see how it looked with this gorgeous stamp.
When I do it, I tend to invert the layers rather than having the centre as the top layer.
Littlelamb, I think these stalls cost in the £100's as it is a regular event run by Excalibur.
June and Maureen, I'll take some snaps of current blooms on the lilac and white wisteria but it is now padlocked and has a 24 hour G4 Security Patrol. My garden isn't that big but I suppose its all relative. Its about 6m wide and about 25m long.
SuzzieQ, thank you for reminding me about all you paddlers being Duckadees. Its a long time since I used that expression lol!!! Truth be told, one of the reasons I wanted to buy this house was the wisteria lol!!!
Jenny, I am very concerned about the effect Brexit is going to have on the foam pad industry so I may have to get rid of my shares lol!!!
Well, th th th that's all folks. Be good and see you soon.
