One of those Weeks...
Ever had one of those weeks that you just couldn't pull away from paperwork and drudgery? That pretty much sums up this last one for me... The good news is that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I'm so happy that I'll be able to get away from my computer this weekend and finally be able to spend some time outside. We've got a few things planned but the highlight will be the chance of buying a couple of bee hives from a retiring beekeeper tomorrow. It's a shame when someone has to give up one of their passions, but at the same time I look forward to walking into some good quality equipment at hopefully bargain prices.
The other exciting bit of news this week is another one of my 'finds' - a very solid wood desk that I found down at the amenity site last weekend. We've been looking for a garage work bench for awhile now but the shops I've approached have given me prices ranging from £60 to over £100 for their least expensive options. Seeing as we were hoping to pay less than £50, this desk is not only well under our budget (being free!) but sturdy enough to provide years of use. Maybe I'll have my chicken coop finished by spring after all :)
