Allotment – Flowers and Fun

10 Jul

We had a shared lunch at the allotment today – lots of courgettes in evidence! My muffins (recipe to come as soon as I can) were joined by Courgette Fritters and more muffins and some delicious Cinnamon rolls.  I took some photos of a couple of flowers around the plot.

Chatting together we talked about travelling and learning languages and I remembered learning some IsiZulu for our volunteering in Mapoch, near Pretoria when we first retired. I made flash cards to learn with and afterwards wrote a diary of our experiences. Here is the opening paragraph of my diary and some of my flash cards.

      It was the best thing we have ever done. We have lovely memories of the people and the places but especially the people. 🙂

      Just under three weeks, B built a new classroom with local workers and I worked with the children and the teachers. It was wonderful, one of the best things we have ever done.
