Tasty and itchy fingers!

OK - a good weekend generally! A gusty wind kept us on our toes today and event hough the temperature didn't rise above 6 degrees, the wind chill felt much, much lower. This morning I managed to wash the car and hoover it inside ready for the service next week. It actually scrubs up quite weel and now looks like this....
This afternoon, John and I popped up the garden centre. Since replanting the primulas in my water barrel at the front, they really haven't liked life much and look a bit forlorn. I decided to turn the barrel into an Alpine garden, (sort of,) I have to say it looks much better and should last the whole year round and the plants hopefully will spread out given time.
On the way back, we notice the narrow shop, who also run their own blog, moored at All Oaks car park. We simply had to stop and say hi and ended up getting some lovely jam to go with the fresh crusty bread from the garden centre!
The fresh food from passing shop boats, village stores and canalside farm shops has to be one of the highlights of boat dwelling!
Ah well, another week ahead but the last one before half term so can't complain.
