The last few days have been totally mad. I decided to put my old bread maker on eBay, fully expecting to get no responses. But someone was prepared to pay for it to be shipped to them, which entailed me researching a courier. And all the other activities that go with sending a somewhat fragile item through the post.
On the way home from my first Leeds Permaculture Network (LPN) committee meeting this evening, the bread maker was finally dispatched. So, that’s a bit of purposeful decluttering done and now I can turn my attention to a completely different matter.
The matter in question is fundraising for LPN. This is a new venture for me indeed, so it looks like I’m onto yet another learning curve. However, we need some cash to take things forward, rather than coasting along, reacting to rather than actually being at the forefront of positive change.
Anyway, we shall see. In the meantime, here’s a shot of the wild flower patch at Old Sleningford Farm. If only there was space for one of these chez moi – but I’ve never got this kind of seeds to grow, so better that I gave my seeds (courtesy of Kew Gardens’ scheme to provide more habitats for pollinators) to the farm.
