As I sat down with my Dairy Milk mug and glanced out the window, I could see our lovable Irish lady Maria trotting down the lane, I waved her over to the cabin to join us and she kindly blessed us with a packet of wine gums and a few wise words on how her holidays went. Anyway, enough of all that, it was then time to do some work, Tash and Jack went off to harvest food coop orders, sadly still no sprouts. Meanwhile, Emma took me and Maria over to the big hump for some digging and to try and even it out as best we could, which was no easy task I can tell you, The more we dug, the more plant trays we uncovered, it began to look more like a rubbish tip again than anything else, but let it be known that we never shy away from a bit of hard work and we soon managed to bag it all up and get the place looking tidy again and smoother on the foot.
Time for a well deserved tea break I thought to myself. The plan was to get some more energy but I think the brake made us more tired. We carried on after our lunch and cleared away a load of old bricks that were lying around and made a small pile out of the way. We were soon joined by our fellow chums, Jack and Tash and just like the wise men, they came baring gifts. A delightful box of scones the cafe had kindly given us. They went down a treat and a fine way to end the day, we packed up our belongings and headed home. Well that’s it from me until next week, Cheerio dears!
