I'm running out of decent photos... I haven't had an outing with my camera for weeks, owing to a combination of bad weather at weekends and being busy with some 'home improvements'. I have had the sliding doors replaced on the wardrobes in my bedroom. The old (very old) ones no longer slid but had to be lifted and coaxed. Now I have smart new ones that swish along at the flick of a finger. I have spent some happy time 'swishing'!
It meant, of course, the moment was opportune to do some clearing out too. I discovered a hitherto unconscious need to squirrel away empty shoe boxes; I must have a dozen of them! I blame my dad for setting me the example of hoarding things that 'might come in useful one day'. Mind you, he lived through the war, when maybe that was more of a virtue than a vice.
I noticed all these plastic trays piled up on the local allotments. I felt sure there was a picture to be had - but I'm not sure I quite found it. I wonder if the allotment holder lived through the war too....
