This afternoon, UJ and I planted them in one of the beds, so we now have potatoes, beetroot, spring onions, broad beans and peas in the ground, and lots in the mini greenhouse. We are on our way at last! Huge thanks to UJ for all his help and support in this, as he has been wonderful!
We have been to the warfarin clinic as well this afternoon, and I went to the nearby plant sales but the raspberry canes I wanted to buy looked a bit too dormant yet to risk - I am not casting aspersions on the shop but I have had a lot of bad luck with raspberries and I want any I buy to be showing signs of life! They had lots of other soft fruit and grape plants which looked very appealing, but I hadn't gone for blackcurrants, grapes, melons, etc: I wanted raspberry canes. Maybe not this year!
Tonight I have listened to a chap who called himself a broker try to sign me up to buy a "position" in his investment opportunity in Brazil. The company has a very swish website which reveals that they are not regulated by the FSA, and he called me, and wouldn't reveal how he got my details. I listened for 40 minutes, I am sorry to say! I have emailed him through the website to say that I am not interested and not to get in touch any more, so I hope he takes note. The glossy brochure will be going straight into the bin when it arrives, because I am sure this is a scam somehow...
Also into the bin went the Lakeland and Book People catalogues today - they are not scams, and both were full of things I would love, but I definitely don't NEED anything from either of them this month, so I got rid of temptation very quickly. I have been considering these today though:

We have been looking for new sitting room furniture for some time now, and we may not replace a sofa and two chairs with exactly the same configuration; I saw these chairs in a home-decorating magazine at the hospital yesterday and I love them. BUT they are £399 each, and I don't really want to spend £800 on two chairs. I have heard, though, about a big charity shop that sells furniture at Downham Market, through a lady at the church, who found some lovely furniture there, so I think that it would be well worth the trip over into Norfolk to go and have a look around.
