Day 9, 10 11

Sorry blog I still like you, lets do a multiple,
Emails received trying to persuade me to buy things; 9
Things bought, Village Shop, toothpaste, nurofen, clementines (5 for 11p), sweeties.  Stroud farmers market, my 4 packs of Chads butter, eggs, toulouse sausages, bacon, Crispin and cox apples, Cavolo Nero, 1 sliced sherston and pasties.  Then to Nailsworth where I got christmassy, sock presents in Clobber,  99p wrapping paper in pulp and labels for chutneys, chocolate in coco, great Haberdashery in Steffi's new shop Mother Goose.  A 1/8 shepherds loaf and milk from Hobbs House. Cannelini beans, clementines and nappies from Green Spirit.
Things for free, Cheese from Chad, two different apples to try to aid my decision on which to buy, advise over daughters cold sore in Green Spirit.Things cancelled, no time.  The christmas catalogues are arriving and I will need to cancel post subscriptions too before the recycling breaks our backs.
Things cooked, Kids tomato pasta with Cotswold Mozzarella, ham, egg and mushroom roll, mmm, scrambled eggs and bacon, and the last of the goose and toulouse sausage in a Cassoulet with cavolo nero.  Followed by Apple crumble and custard.  Medlar Jelly on the go.
Had the last day at Mary Howard, no purchases and also a great success for the Little People Company. Had a fantastic evening with Todd and Jess from Trewothans Cheese at the Hobbs House Bistro scheming up ideas of Glastonbury and Artisinal doughnuts.  The food was amazing warm beetroot salad followed by Brisket with dumplings and horseradish it was to die for.  Too much wine and home late.   Such a pleasure to go to Stroud Farmers Market on Saturday again, hot tip about a Medlar Chutney from Days Apple juice.  Then an afternoon of preparing for Horsley School christmas fair on Thursday night where I have a stall, the button necklace kits are nearly ready. Spent a magical evening at Jessie and Carlos' yurt eating delicious food.  Then a perfect sunday lie in and a day in the garden.  Replanted last years Tulips, picked apples, oodles of bramleys, Ashmead Kernel and Ida Red apples.  Lots of medlars too, now waiting to be passed through the jelly bag.  I used up the confit of duck in the cassoulet, really good, now too make goose stock then the goose is over.  Doesn't seem so expensive now we have had 4 meals out of it and enough for the kids tomorrow.
Over and out, roger.
