First of all, I have to apologise to all of the UK and Ireland. You can all blame the weather on me. I tempted fate - I looked at the sand patch yesterday and thought, hey, it’s drying out a bit. Sorry guys.
On a brighter note, I was riding Flurry in the arena yesterday and glanced up at the vegetable patch as I passed. My eye was caught by a creamy white spot in the hedge – more Shaggy Parasol mushrooms! Mushroom risotto for dinner! This must surely be the last flush - with all this cold wet weather coming they’ll probably just rot away as they stand and not be able to spawn.
The last week has been pretty hectic for both of us. Anne did three fund-raising “gigs” for IGDB and hit her target. Being the glutton for punishment that she is, she’s going to do a few more days anyway – who knows, she might double it! She has had loads of family stuff going on too – birthdays, visitors and a graduation and now her daughter Polly has headed off an a whistle-stop tour of Ireland as the support act for Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel – exciting stuff!
