Since receiving our potato gift from our friends at The Sustainability Centre, we have been sharing some of adventures together.
What's the story in Balamory?
"Mr Sustainable potato head is feeling a tad hot under his skin. "Oooh yes Nix, but I'm feeling a little anxious as we're so near the chippy, I don't want to loose my skin and become a fish supper!"
"Well, it was a bit blustery yesterday, so while James was cleaning swimming pools, Nix took me safely in her rucksac for a nice forest walk to see a wee waterfall and introduce me to some mountains, much larger than my native hills in the South Downs. We passed common and bell heather, rosebay willowherb and a lively young spikey but very soft larch tree. We could see the ferry on the choppy waters from up there and then a couple of big scary black dogs. Both were thankfully friendly upon arrival. One was fixated on 'walkies' the other wanted just a quick sniff, luckily he wasn't hungry for mash potato. After our walk we visited the local Spar and postie for some non potato snacks and we chose a great walking guide book for further adventures. I'm looking forward to meeting an otter! The rest of the day I enjoyed chillin' with frog while Nix went to work. "
