So, as we're clearing the allotment of as much as we can, we ended up picking a lot of food a bit earlier than we should have done. Including the sweetcorn.
Behold, from right to left: Baby corns, toddler corns and one rather spotty teenager corn.
They all tasted good, though!
Sooooo, we're not keeping the allotment.
This is our penultimate haul of food. The only thing left are out main potato crop and tomato and pepper plants.
There are a few reasons we have decided to leave. The biggest being the allotment chairman; to put it as politely as i can, we don't like him and we don't get along. Simply, we think we've done a pretty good job so far, but he thinks we should have done more - and won't stop moaning at us and making us feel useless and unwanted at the allotments. He seems to think we're on the brink of being evicted, even though conversations with the inspection committee suggest otherwise.
Our tenancy agreement runs out in September and we will not be renewing it.
Instead, we are looking for a house with an actual garden instead of a yard.
Now, all we need is someone with a van so we can clear the allotment of all the things we have managed to accumulate there!

My Mum recently brought these back from a trip to Belgium for me. I was quite surprised to see how fancy looking they were! No instructions, though, so it was a bit pot luck what you got. Unfortunately the strawberry one (the most awesome looking one in the whole packet!) was actually marzipan... ewww! That is now the only one left in the box - the rest were very nom!

So for the last few days of my DailyMe
i tried to take shots in more public places (because that kind of thing terrifies me!) and along with that i took a few shots from my POV in
the shot. With my Holga. And here they are.
1) Day 360
2) Day 361
3) Day 362
4) Day 365
I'm very very behind on my Holga uploads. I've had roll 5 scanned in for ages and have now got rolls 6 & 7 ready to post. Haha.
N.B. I like taking photos of cats, incase you hadn't noticed.

The beach and fairground are back in the market square in Nottingham.
The rides look fun, but the beach is just pointless and tacky.
The flying chairs are my favourite, but i'm still not paying their stupid prices to go on them. So i just took photos instead!
Had a very long and drunken night on Friday and these are the only photos that i took! Ha.
Looking into the cellar of the pub down an old well-type-thing that's now used to lift the beer casks in and out of.
