Jumping the Gun

I was going to hang the flags out to launch Tart HQ's April opening but there's a bit too much in the way yet. For a start there have been further earth-moving developments (steady, we're talking diggers and gravel here). 
Then there's the tractor mower which is parked up right in front of HQ's windows, not to mention the fact that I haven't quite found a home for all the stuff that I have returned to the caravan from its winter quarters in the house.

And of course the sun shone all week so I had to grab the opportunity and paint several miles of fence palings, two sheds and a hen house. 

So no more excuses?

Hmmm, well actually we have some good friends arriving on Saturday and they are going to house/dog/hen-sit while we run away to Amsterdam. 

Major excitement! We've never been, we're going by ferry and staying right bang in the middle of the city. All those galleries, museums, markets, canals, coffees, pancakes and so on right on the doorstep. Picture two country bumpkins wandering round with eyes like saucers!
