What did I say two posts ago? That my website would be up and running in about a week? Pah! What was I thinking?! Maybe it was  that Miss Tread Softly would continue to sleep in the afternoons for three hours. Maybe I was thinking that I’d have the energy and focus to work on it in the evenings. Maybe, I’m always unrealistic when it comes to the time available and what I can fit into it! Must work on that. I bumped into a lovely customer this morning at the hairdressers who told me that she was missing my site. So, for you, Janet, I will do my utmost! No deadlines as I always disappointment myself when I can’t meet them, but, rest assured, I will do my best.

This Saturday I’ll be at New Rags Market at the Town Hall in Masterton and on Sunday, at St John’s Hall, Greytown along with clothing designer Linda Buick and artist Sandra Wong. I’ve been working on an a-frame sign to put on the pavement outside the hall. It’s ridiculously heavy so won’t blow away in the Spring winds.

One of the things I love about small town living is that neighbours and friends are always handing over big baskets or boxes filled with home-grown produce. Today, I received  sunshine daffodils and heaps of juicy lemons. Thank you! Freshly laid eggs will be making their way back to the generous friend.

    P.S. Can’t see you pictures- is it me and my computer?

  6. Hi Pixie! The ‘girls’, Mrs M, Barbara and Margo are doing just fine. Each day we collect a couple of eggs which means that we can give some away to neighbours and friends every so often. They love to run free around the garden when we’re out there and enjoy dustbaths in the vegetable garden!
