It has been a busy few weeks in the dub household, mainly as we have had to look for a new car!! We have now found one and this will be arriving tomorrow.
Yes, a renault megane scenic - I hasten to add this is not our car, I found this image on gumtree. Our Saab has reached the end of the road - ha ha! We have spent the last couple of weeks researching and looking for the right car for us. The scenic will give us the room we need, but is cheaper on the road tax and running costs, it is also a smaller engine. I know it is probably not the best time for us to get a car, but we do need one. We did sit down and discuss not having a car, but at the current time it is not practical at the moment. We did discuss getting public transport, but rail travel is expensive and the bus service in MK is not ideal - there is no service that would be suitable for me to get T to school and then get to and from work at the times I need.
On a completely different note, T and I harvested our potatoes yesterday.
I am not sure what type of potatoes these are, I think the pinks are pink fir, the whites are very waxy and were lovely - had some tonight for dinner. We harvested 5lbs in all so not bad for 3 potato bags and a reused compost bag. Now we will be harvesting the garlic, this is the first time I have grown garlic. I have also been given a small 3 tier greenhouse and I will be planning more veg for next year.
Not bad for a freebie, mine is very similar to this one from Tescos.
