Thanks for joining me on a relatively laid back episode of the podcast this week. The amazing weather we’ve had over the bank holiday weekend means that I’ve been spending lots of quality time with my family and all of it, pretty much has been centred around Ramsbottom.
It’s one of the brilliant things about our town in that you can still do plenty and not travel, although I did go to Rawtenstall to get some compost. I’m going to bore you here but they had a great deal on compost in B&M, instead of £8 for 120 litres, it was £5, and as I had recently built two large raised beds, I needed a lot. This involved two trips, once to Rawtenstall where I picked up 7 120 litre bags and a trip later to Bury for 8 120 litre bags. Turns out, I could do with another one ideally. Anyway, they’re done now at least, so it’s time to actually plant things in them, but there’s a part of me that’s looking at them and just wants to them to remain pristine and perfect, but that’s silly.
All of this had meant me spending more time in the sun than I usually should. I generally burn at the slightest gap in the clouds.
