Jess was in heaven in Primark, she loves that you can get a whole bag of goodies for £20

I loved the displays in John Lewis, so pretty. I want it all!!

We spent the day up the allotment yesturday, planning to do the same today. We are lucky to have had out allotment 4 years. Everyone said to me when I took it over " it will take about 4 years to get it managable" Very true. Only now is it managable!

Yesturday I planted my Early Potatoes, Beetroot, Carrots and Peas. Im planning on going up again today to plant Broad Beans, Onions ( i have 200! ) Spring Onions and parsnips.

In the last year we have always come home with a harvest. Yesturday It was enough leeks and Cabbages to feed the whole street!

My Pay It Foward

I was lucky to pulled out of the jug for A Bun Can Dance Pay it Foward ( PIF ). As part of the deal I am looking for 3 lucky people to take part in my Pay It Foward.

Im going to follow the rules that Denise set for her Pay It Foward.

The 3 lucky people will receive a parcel from me filled with goodies. In return they have to agree to organise their own Pay It Foward.

I to am going to open the Pay It Foward to anyone, you dont need to be a crafter or include homemade items. You do need to have a blog!

UK participants only please.

Leave a comment to this post saying you are interested by Monday 12th April.

If there are more than 3 people who want to take part, then I'll pop names in a hat and randomly select 3.

I'll send the 3 PIF participants a parcel of surprises each, by the end of May.

The 3 PIF participants would then need to organise their own PIF by the end of June.

I think thats everything?!
Looking foward to your comments :)
