My patience has been tested today, just about to go out for some petrol and the car broke down, or rather wouldn't start. I could certainly do without this as I've got to use the car tomorrow for a college trip to the museums in Hull.
Anyway a helpful recovery man was able to sort it out and suggested giving it a bit of a run out to burn off surplus fuel so I took the opportunity to visit Burton Agnes again and see the textile artists.
I came away very inspired by their work and the variety of effects and techniques you can apply to fabrics.
I also visited the farmers' shop which is sometimes a bit hit and miss but today they had some lovely fruit & veg from the Hall gardens and I was amazed to get this unusual cauliflower for only 20p. They had full cucumbers for 10p in some wonderful curly mis-shapes which wouldn't get near a supermarket shelf. I got all the bits shown on the photo for £2.50 which I didn't think was bad and now the oven is about back to normal I'm looking forward to cooking up decent food again.
