just a little prick

Briefly, as I have just come in for a couple of pints of water before plunging back in to the 37 degree heat of the greenhouse ... my ebay auctions are ending tomorrow.

I mention this not only in the hope that a million people will fall in love with our miscellaneous bits and bobs and get sucked in to an irrational bidding war with each other ... but because I have received several fabulously worded emails from companies wishing to make a deal with us to buy our laptops:

my dear friend : Please allow us to disturb your precious time! We are the Chinese biggest foreign trade wholesaler. If you want to do business, we can offer you our most reasonable discount, making you get more profit.If you have time, please visit our website,Please relate with us, we will give you a satisfying answer.

Isn't that sweet? I am almost tempted to relate with them, just to read more of their prose.

The houses we looked at on Friday were a no-no and a possible-but-lots-of-people-interested. We've had no viewings as yet. However, we do have An Idea, of which more later in the week if it turns out to be even vaguely feasible.

The Skip Experience is turning out to be as therapeutic as I thought it might be. And loads of freecyclers are interested in our stuff. So all going to plan.

Now I'm off back to the greenhouse to prick out my asparagus seedlings.

    I would say 'you do know how to enjoy yourself', were it not for my grubby (and nearly non-existent) fingernails, and the fact that said grubbiness results from having spent this morning buggering about in the greenhouse. :)

  3. Do Not Mock. I am already planning three years ahead when I can pick the first shoots :).

  5. Aw.. Mums can be a pain in the rear, can't they? I'm sorry. Mine too.
    Yes, the 3 year wait for asparagus. Me too. But they last for ever. Like about 30 years or so.. Seems that way, anyway, as my mum has one in her garden that was there when I was a kid!
    And don't dare miss a planting season! You can take some stuff with you when you find the prefect place.
