Today, seeing as how I had yet another day off work (the nerve!), the hubbie and I decided to take a trip to the nearby town of Tetbury in Gloucestershire. Its exactly as chocolate-box and middle-England as you’re imagining.
Cotswold stone, olde-worlde shoppes (even if every other two are antique/’design’ shops and every other three are tea shops of some description), awful parking options – that kind of thing. But we lunched and drank (mojito at lunchtime – don’t mind if I do!) – and then made out way home.
The point? That on the way home we did our weekly grocery shopping (very exciting – stay with me) and then popped in to a garden centre to buy some compost (one of horse manure, one of multi-purpose peat-free). And in this garden centre they had a rather lovely offer on packets of bulbs – one packet for £3 or three packets for £6. Be silly not to, really! So I did.
