What A State......
I thought it would be a good idea to wash Sol's bed today,
took the cover off and found this mess
The lining was all torn open and the filling spilling out
while the cover was in the washing machine
I found some fabric run up a new liner and filled it with the original filling
and added this bag of filling
or was trying too but Sol was trying to claim his bed back.
A new liner with lots of filling I think Sol finds it really comfy
His old bones need a bit of comfort.
Just waiting for the cover to dry now,
A lot cheaper than a new bed,
The filling was £7.99 a new bed is about £40
Got visitors arriving tomorrow, daughter partner and kids, so I have been sorting beds for them to and sorting out food.
In between I dashed to catch the post van parcel to send off, working at the sewing machine finishing more orders.
and after filling his bed with polystyrene beads I had a bit of an indoor snow storm to hoover up.
I have had a few people ask about Oca, its otherwise known as New Zealand Yams, there texture is similar to water chestnut, and the taste is similar, they can roasted, boiled, fried and eaten raw.
Easy to grow, they can be grown outdoors in the UK.
They store well and you can grow your next crop from a few kept tubers.
I was also asked how I choose and plan what to grow for the following year, I will be starting my planning in the next week or so and will do a post on it.
That's all for today folks, off for a cuppa and settle down to watch Ben Fogle :-)
