Excitement, Peas and Costume

26 Jul

1  I’ve booked my tickets to Mortimer station! I’m going to be at The Wool Against Weapons demo at Aldermaston with our Peace scarf! I am so excited I haven’t the words to say!  I will actually be there to unroll our 22 Peace Pieces!

Our Pieces for Wool Against Weapons


2   We have harvested our first peas today, beautifully sweet and moist – just lovely raw!

3   I have sorted my costume for Sunday 3rd August, on the lines of my Great Great Granny on my Mother’s side – a long dark grey skirt, a white shirt with a wide dark cummerbund and a green brooch at the neck that belonged to the lovely Mr S’s Great Aunt with a flash of purple ribbon as my mark of respect for the Suffragettes of the time. My curly hair won’t be subdued into this hairdo though!

      I am so excited about the scarf! I’ll take lots of photos, of course, and show you the event as best I can. I won’t be bale to see the whole 7 miles though. I’ll get some pictures of us all dressed up too for the show next Sunday. 🙂

    Those peas look lovely and crispy. Sure they tasted good.

    I can just taste the freshness in those peas…good eating!

      Raw peas straight from the pod! Nothing quite like them! Indeed, I will be very proud to be part of the Peace demo:)
