The other evening me and Andy walked down to our allotment to see how the bulbs were coming along. By the time we took over the allotment last year (late summer) it was too late to plant anything (well, except cabbage as I kept being told, but I don’t like cabbage so wasn’t going to grow it for the sake of it) so in the autumn we planted lots of daffodil bulbs.
Well, lots of them were already flowering, so we picked quite a few, and might get some more at the weekend. Every now and then I get a lovely whiff of their fragrance, it really is fab. I love the fact that we have grown these, and they really smell so strong- I suppose ones from the shop are a week old by the time you buy them, so that may explain it.
Andy is going to do some digging (and my Dad has offered to help too, seeing as I can’t be doing that just yet) so we will hopefully start to get a few things going there. I am feeling excited about it for this year.
I have also been spending time entering competitions! I saw on TV a few weeks ago a story about people who enter loads of competitions- one person had won a fancy treadmill (which she could not even have because it was too heavy for her flat or something) but she was the only person who entered. I won some Dove’s Farm bars as they were celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight. The day before they came I saw that Lucy reviewed them on her blog, so I am looking forward to trying them.
I also won some Montezuma’s chocolate. A whole kilo– not sure how to even start eating it! Think I need to save this until I can start running again.
And some vanilla munchy seeds! These were all free facebook competitions 🙂 I have decided you have to be in it to win it! I get a lot of emails and usually ignore them, but I have also entered things like The Food Network competition (you only have to answer one question) and just cross my fingers.
I have also found that I can while away quite a bit of time on the Dorset cereals site- they have little competitions and mini games and things.
Don’t worry, I have not spent all my time glued to the computer- I have managed one or two short walks each day (and often an afternoon nap!). I have a doctor’s appointment next week and as we have 2 weeks before the Easter holidays I think it is safe to say that I will be returning to work after those, which I am really looking forward to.
Do you ever enter competitions? Have you ever won anything, and if so what did you win?
