Wednesday 13 June WI

Rain was forecast for today so I decided to sped as much time as I could putting out more plants after I had done my usual bits. Luckily it held off until the afternoon so I got more done outside than I hoped.

In the evening I collected Joanna and we went to the monthly meeting of the WI at Over Haddon village hall. We don’t sing Jerusalem and have a mix of ages although none under thirty. Still we are quite an active bunch, usually entering a couple of teams in the national quiz and usually entering for the Bakwell show. After the minutes there were items for discussion and one of the topics was how well the preparations of our entries for the Bakewell Show were going. There were some tasters for the cookery section for us to sample. Our guest speaker tonight was a local man who talked about bee keeping. More interesting than you would think. He did not bring along any bees but he did bring some honey to sample.
