Hump day again, where thanks to the Queen of Desks Julia we bare our workdesks on a Wednesday. This week on my desk is this!!!!!
This is a certificate (not had one of those for MANY years) I came RUNNER UP in our parish in bloom contest for our allotment site! This is the first year I have had this plot and it had NOTHING but weeds growing when I took it over in April. It has lots that needs doing and some things need rethinking (and it is only a small plot so I need to be careful what I plant and where). The hilarious things is that I had NO idea it was for the parish in bloom. The parish council said they were inspecting the plots so I presumed it was like the plot inspections I used to have when I had a plot in Bath 20 odd years ago (they used to check % of land weed free, edges etc) to ensure I didn't get a fine or notice to quit. It was more chilled than this and was for the parish in bloom!
So we went to the council meeting where I got a certificate AND totally unexpected a £15 garden centre voucher! Plus there was a buffet and wine, I was well chuffed!!
So there you are, bit of a different desk this week as I am making a bit of space on the wall of my craft room to display my certificate since I am really stupidly proud of it!
