Party Time

Four or 5 of my former neighbours are visiting this Saturday. I just have enough beds to put them all up but hubby and I will have to rough it downstairs. Today we went out to buy some bedding for the single bed as I didn't have one of those before we moved. Here there is a built-in single bed in the little bedroom. At the last house the little bedroom was actually my office. Now I have the office in the garage conversion downstairs, which means that there is still one spare room if anyone else turns up unexpectedly.

Anyway, since they will be able to tell what really great neighbours we are (they will, or else ...) I thought I'd invite some of the new ones as well. If they all come, I'll be catering for 12 or 13, rather a lot for me.

Recently I was given some vacuum-packed chorizo from Spain, which gave me the idea of making a selection of hot tapas. I'll also have some salads and cold cuts, so hopefully everyone will find something they like.

Better stop writing now. There are only five more days to prepare!!!

PS My Taklimakan article was accepted by Constant Content today and is showcased here.

Thank you, Buggys. I'm not quite panicking yet.

Dear jakill,
Thank you so much for visiting and commenting on my post about the nasturtiums.
You now have a direct link to your blog on this post, in case new readers look at it or older readers take another look. (I have also linked the nasturtiums to a page from the BBC gardening site.)
Very pleased to make your acquaintance!
Welcome back any time!
Best wishes
Christina Wigren (Anna)

You can open and operate a bed and breakfast :) Congratulations on the article. That is wonderful

Christina - thanks for your link back. I once got some nasturtium seeds and planted them (you just have to throw them around, really) in my last garden. They then seeded themselves and appeared year after year.

Thaks Jo. One reason we chose to buy this house is that a small part of it could be sectioned off to let out. At the moment though, I'm using that part to work in, and I share it with with all the odds and sods that haven't yet found a home here. It could be a source of income for us though, if times get really hard.
