When Beth moved to the village little did she know she was entering such a thriving artistic community, and all settled around the village green!
Beth & Christopher’s cottage was a renovation project and as such the couple decided now was a good time for Beth to leave the chaotic world of catering behind have 6 months reprieve so she could take on the majority of the work returning each room back to its bare bones of brickwork.
Within days of Beth moving into her quaint ( yet only just inhabitable) cottage a leaflet was pushed her letterbox announcing the local village garden party was being held at the village hall and it’s enclosed grounds 2 weeks hence.
Beth scribbled the date on her calendar,
When the Saturday of the garden party arrived Beth & Christopher planned to take the afternoon off from turning their abode into what resembled ruins and join in the festivities.
As the sun peeped through the cottage windows Beth became aware of a ruckus outside – raised voices shouting for the landlord next door to wake up and help, it turned out when the chairman had opened the village hall to begin preparations for the day’s events he noticed water cascading through the hall roof putting the hall out of order,
hastily gazebo’s were erected on the village green, all the stall holders moved lock stock and barrel from the hall gardens out onto the green, Peter opened up the pub kitchens where the ‘Village Ladies’ gathered to make sandwiches, Suzanne but a distress call out for scones to mass produced, she had already made muffins, cupcakes and all manner of sweet delicacies as her contribution to the cream tea which was arranged for 3 pm …and this is where Beth entered the fray ….

K9 hardly ever chews the mail …Today obviously being the exception !! was it junk mail ?? OH NO !! was it a flyer for something we won’t ever need OH NO !! it has to be something important doesn’t it !!
Now my quandary is do I just return it …or return it with a note explaining K9 took a fancy to it .. or just write a link to this blog on the envelope so they know exactly what my life is like. I’m sure my long running drama’s with our local postman should be documented somewhere in the postal system, this can now be added to the list🙂
All things being equal I thought rather then bore the living day lights out of anyone regarding the new love of my life ‘Millicent Morris’ I’m going to feature most posts about her over on my sister blog Enduring Cottage so feel free to call over to have your life invaded by a Morris 8 …or not it’s up to you🙂
Last week Beloved came home from ‘The Capital’ with a request from Sarah, a lady he works with, her Dear One has just bought an old Land Rover.
Now Sarah being the good lady wife she is, has took it upon herself to commission Mr Sarah a gift …which is where Beloved offered my services, a quick trawl through the world wide web ~ who am I kidding I was on there AGES🙂 Anyhoo many an hour later after calling by Attic24 I found just what I was looking for and set too with only a slight problem
The end result …
I do hope this is what Sarah was thinking of ~ and Mr Sarah see’s the funny side of her oh so thoughtful gift
