I previously mentioned I had got rid of loads of books and magazines on freecycle. On the off chance the other day I emailed the same lady who came the first time if she would like the last few magazines and books. She was happy to take the books, she turned up on my doorstep in the pouring rain with these beautiful Dahlias as a thank you for the books.
Whilst shopping in Morrison's the other day, I was wondering aimlessly whilst Alex went to have a look on the bargain stall, he came towards me with this in his arms. A three foot Orchid. Reduced from £10 to the grand some of 20p - yes you read it correctly twenty pence!
