My marketing was very successful this morning. I fell in love with and bought a beautiful pelargonium with almost black flowers, called 'Black Butterfly'. Also picked up some herb and lettuce plants. For the small amount I need, it's just not worth raising them myself from seed.
Books were also plentiful today. A chap I mentally call Geordie because of his lovely accent had boxes and boxes of 'em, a pound each and he kindly called out to me 'children's books in this one!'. Much rummaging went on and an old chap said, 'we're like pigs in muck here'. True! I spent a tenner with him then did a little deal with a regular stallholder there which got me my money back. I'm thinking of starting a second blog, called maybe churchmouse or secondhandrose, all about how to live on very little money.
