Good News, Diet, Landshare & Confusion!!!!!!!
Hi Everyone, I do hope you all had a good weekend. I certainly did.
Well to be honest any weekend spent without the hated neighbour making life hell on the street is a GOOD weekend, and they were no where to be seen. In fact we have hardly seen or heard from them in weeks, so it's bliss here right now. I have just found out that they have opened a restaurant in Greenwich. Good luck to them I say. After all the more time they spend there the less we have to put up with them and the happier the street is, with neighbours talking to each other and everyone happy and relaxed.
Mind you, I wouldn't want to eat there, you see their kitchen is next to mine and the horrid smells that come out of their kitchen don't inspire me to want to eat there. Funny really as a few of the neighbours have made the same comments and all this time I thought it was just me being nasty, 'cos I am biased against them. Turns out that quite a few of the others think along the same lines.
We saw a couple of reviews for the restaurant and they weren't favourable since they took it over. Most of the other neighbours want them to fail and are praying for it, personally the better they do, the better for my family and the street in general. So I really mean it when I wish them luck. They are open twice a day, 6 days a week, so they are going to be too busy to bother the rest of us on the street and hopefully too tired when they are here. That can only be good for the rest of the street.
I recently came across a site about land sharing. Put simply it is for those who have a garden and helps put them in touch with people who don't have a garden, can't get their hands on an allotment, but really want to be able to grow their own produce.
Just in case you haven't ever guest about me there is a bit of a hippy chick in me and I think this is an excellent idea. So I put us up for it. I figure there are a few good things about this:-
A- I can't do the garden any more, small as it is, it is too much alone and no one else in the house has one iota of interested in helping me. So I will get some help.
B- I get to met new people and possibly become good friends. Although I am not stupid enough to believe you can make friends over night, like a garden they need to be tended.
C- I get to help others to grow their own food and food for my own family. But mainly for me, as I have to have organic veg now, due to hated illness and my garden has been organic since 1996.
Sounds great so far. Here's the problem, I have been inundated with requests. I have told people it is small and that it must be organic, non-smoking, no dogs, fences need fixing and that Bear and Misty (the cats) must be taken into consideration, especially Misty as she is old and never leaves the garden these days. Now how do I pick who is to share the garden, I have managed to whittle it down to 4 couples, but am stuck now as I know I will be disappointing some people and I really wish I didn't have to.
I was thinking that maybe I should send them a link to my blog; after all they may not like me after they read it. But then again I have just gone and put this post up about what to do, so they will think that I'm mad!!!!!!!
So, do any of you have any ideas about how to pick someone to land share with!!!!!
Oh!!!! What's a girl to do? Anyway I am off to visit you all now and see what you have all been up to. As you can see from the above photo, my diet is working and my hair is growing back.....no seriously it really is growing, but then as I "HAVE" eat my body weight in veggies everyday (due to stupid illness) I suppose there really should be some benefits to all that veggie chomping, not that I didn't eat them before, just that well I really do mean body weight and there is a hell of a lot of weight lol. Didn't do well last week, am still 13st 5lbs, oh well am not going to give up, as I do feel a bit better.
