Being busy and a bit of an experience..

Hello all,how are you today?
Now wasn't the weather just lovely today..i got laundry out and just about dry..i swept the paths and porches and hubby spent time in the greenhouse seed setting.
Hubby went shopping at Lidl's..he found the seeds..the small packets are 29p each and the big ones are 49p
 He got some Pumpkin seeds and Watermelons..also Cucumber and Courgettes..today he set the Tomatoes..4 Cherry variety,2 Beef and 2 Plum..these will be brilliant for making soups and chutneys.

 I went to my local library to pick up this book..i also dropped off a big bag of spare baby clothes for the Mums and Tots groups..its incase anyone gets messy or has an accident..
This book is bloody gorgeous,not just the recipes and ides but the photos' too



 I baked at the weekend and did different things for a change
 Treacle tart
 My Cinnamon rolls have all gone..i only got 1..
 The cookies are Honeycomb Crunchy ones..
 We have made a start on Easter.. i taught the girls the True meaning of Easter today..and no its not about choclate..this conversation led to a discussion about different religions,customs and traditions..it was a nice talk and i think the girls well Fern now understand a little more about the world.

 This is Ferns card for her friend..
 It opens up to a bunch of eggs inside
 This is the card Iris made
She worked hard on this..she is going to give it to her brother..
Its been a busy time here..i have listed few more items on Ebay..sold a few more too..i have bought the girls some lovely bundles for the Summer.
I had the unenviable task of going to the Post Office the other day..the ladies in there are nice apart from one..and i really think its just me she can't stand. I know i am not everyone's cup of tea but i am always polite..but this woman actually rolled her eyes then proceeded to huff and puff and scowl at me..i was quite upset to be honest as i don't know this lady but she has an obvious and i mean totally obvious dislike of me..she chucked my change across the counter  and then stared at me..i said Thank you to which i got no reply..i hung around near the notice board and watched her next customer..she was like a little ray of fluffing sunshine to that person.I can't understand it..i don't know her at all yet she has such obvious distaste for me..am not sure how to deal with it..i have to go to the Post Office for small parcels..but i am now thinking its not worth it.I know you can't make everyone like you but i have never experienced this before..
What would you do?

  1. Someone's been busy. And yes the Harvest Pantry is a beautiful book and has some lovely ideas in it. I got mine second hand but I had to search for it at a cheap price. A lot of places had it for sale at over £30. A book needs to be gold plated these days for me to spend that much on. Barbara Beckett is a very good author. I first became aware of her through a cheapie reduced book I obtained from a shop in Peterborough about 20 years ago. Simply entitled Creating Gourmet Gifts by Barbara Beckett ISBN 1 86373 246 2. If you love the practicality of the Harvest Pantry you will love Gourmet Gifts. It has a plethora of lovely useful recipes. It is much treasured in this household. Looks as though you are getting into things with the gardening. I have most of my seeds this year from a trip to Wilkinsons and also loads of freebies from magazines. I am hoping it is going to be warm enough this weekend to start some seeds off in my mini greenhouse. Here's hoping. Take care.

    2. Hi Sara

      Glad to have been of help. Been messing around with preserving for years and have gradually increased my equipment and bottle stores and gone on to do hot water bottle preserving on a regular basis. I am after a pressurised canner and that will come in due course so I can do meat, fish and soups and veggies. Preserving is my passion. Stems from the fact that my Nan always put food up a lot of which they grew from scratch. They even had their own pigs, geese and chickens and used to send my Dad out for Rabbit this was during the war years. Apparently it helped keep the wolf from the door. My mum also bottled and both my Nan and my mum made their own wines and beer and always did a big bake for the week. I hope to have a go at making salami in the not too distant future. Have already tackled Gravlax - very simple to do and it was absolutely delicious. I will not buy it again but will do it from scratch. Hows the stocking of the pantry going. If you do decide to buy the book try and get it from one of the cheapie book shops to get the best price as what you save here will mean something else for the pantry shelf. Take care.

  3. How rude of her! Can you speak to her supervisor? or ask her "Have I offended you in some way?"...what a nasty lady. Some people are just plain rude...but it is hard when they are rude to you and you don't deserve it!! Keep us posted!

  6. Great cards - good to teach them the real meaning of Easter isn't just about chocolates! As for that woman I would politely say to her 'have I upset you in any way?' And if she carries on being rude I would report her to the manager. I witnessed a post office staff member being really rude to somebody and I mentioned it to the manager. If no one speaks up, they get away with it. Good luck, let us know how you get on xx

  7. Love the girls Easter cards they are very talented.

    I would definitely just ask the Post Office lady very politely if you have offended her in some way. She is obviously upsetting you every time you go in there and life is too short to be upset just for wanting to send a parcel.

  8. My goodness Sara you ad the girls have been busy.

    As Sue says, I would ask the PO assistant and just say have I offended you in some way, because I notice you treat me differently to your other customers.

    To be perfectly honest when you have a job dealing with the public you shouldn't ever be rude no matter what, and I honestly can't see how you could have offended her, you are too nice.

    Love and hugs to the girls

  9. A lady used to treat me like that in a shop when I was much younger. I marched in one day and asked in a very loud vouice ' Have I done something to offend you'. She was speechless and utterly charming from then on. It is worth a try :-)
