Belated Newsletter

Good Morning,

How are we all this beautiful weekend? I hope you’re all well and prepared for another 3 weeks of lockdown!! I know it’s only my opinion, and everyone I talk to has a different view, but I hope that we don’t rush out of this and regret it forever! I’ve still got plenty to do and if I get stuck I’ll watch Gunsmoke or The High Chaparral!! I’m sure Robbie could recommend a few war films!!!

Do you get mixed up with the days?? I don’t have a clue anymore!! No pattern, although I do write this newsletter on a Saturday … is it Saturday today???

GOOD NEWS

I have sold 213 plants !!! The last few I put on my drive and they went instantly!!! The last four Brian B very kindly agreed to let Mr Gustar have! I always said what a nice man Brian B is!!!

Now my Maths is good, so 213 plants at 50p each is ….. £224.20 !!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! and all that goes in our SMILE CHARITY BOX!!!  You have all been SO, SO generous!!! I Now I hope they all grow and you have bumper crops!!!

My greenhouse is planted up, and the others are hardened off ready to plant out ….. but be careful, as the weather this Sunday and Monday is COLD and WINDY, so I’m waiting until next Tuesday!

AND … I will have a few hot chilli plants and peppers for sale in a few weeks  …. watch this space!!

AND PLEASE, PLEASE … I DO NEED AS MANY SQUARE POTS BACK AS POSSIBLE!! IF I’VE SOLD OVER 200 PLANTS I NEED AS MANY BACK AS POSSIBLE, AS I INTEND TO SELL PLANTS AGAIN NEXT YEAR!!!! THANK YOU.

MORE GOOD NEWS

Sylvia completes her Walk the Wight tomorrow morning! I have to say how impressed I am with her commitment, effort and dedication to such a good cause. Every morning for 30 days she has walked, run, jogged, hula hooped, stretched, looked in the kitchen window to see me making my boiled eggs and soldiers, watched me wash up, and still she hasn’t stopped!!! A TREMENDOUS EFFORT! Watched and appreciated by regular walkers and neighbours!!!

Once again we have been overwhelmed by your generosity … she is walking again in memory of Fred Blackwell’s daughter Mez. THE TOTAL RAISED SO FAR IS …. £830 !!!! A massive THANK YOU to all who donated!!

Sylvia has been in touch with a lot of you to say a personal THANK YOU. If she’s not been in touch yet, she will. Obviously if you donated anonymously it will be difficult, but A BIG THANK YOU!

If you haven’t donated and would like to, it’s not too late. I’m sure the Hospice will not collect the usual massive amount as there is no Walk the Wight, and it is an amazing charity. THANK YOU.

 Any other news or gossip?

Sylv cut my hair again yesterday! She’s getting more adventurous and silver locks were flying everywhere!! Who said GREY? I got a bit worried when she said. “Your hair is easy to cut, nobody will know if I make a mess of it!!”

HAND CREAM …… Does anyone else use this??? After washing my hands about 40 times a day, I was horrified to see my hands were dry and splitting near the knuckles!!!! NOW every night before I tell Alexa to stop, I rub hand cream into my hands!!! At the moment I’m using ” Soaper Dupa, Super light, marvellous, magic moisture HAND CREAM with fruit smoothness, coconut water and kukui oil !!! BLOODY GOOD STUFF!

BUT ….  I’ve bought some new stuff !!! “Garnier, Skin Naturals, HANDREPAIR! ” and this stuff has got maple sap extract and glycerine!!!  I hope this is as good!

Can you recommend anything? Think I need to contact the AVON LADY !!!!

Anything good on T.V. ? I’m pleased that The A Word is back on! Emmerdale keeps me ticking over, and who knows, we might be watching German Football live on T.V. soon !!!

A continued THANK YOU to all those who work on our green. I’ve walked down a couple of times and they are doing an amazing job. Would have helped, but I’m watching my hands!!!

Graham
