Of frogs and land
Bad news is: we won't be buying the land we were supposed to buy.
We checked the plans at the Community Office and it seems that the allotments are placed in the area of the National Park of the Narew river and the birds reservation area, so there is no way we could build anything there.
Good news is, nobody will build anything there, so the view won't be spoiled. *^v^*
Another good news is, we will try now to buy a different allotment, smaller but with a house (to renovate), directly next to the allotment with the Grandpa's cottage. ^^
This allotment looks much more sensible, it's rectangular, with a lot of trees, some fruit ones (I've been collecting apples from one tree last year, hush, don't tell anyone!... ^^), with a house and a garden shed, with a potential for some house extension. It's a better value for money.
Now we will try to get the house expert there asap to check the house and tell us the amount of renovation needed, because there is a price difference between painting the walls and fighting the damp...
River Narew can be rough, especially when there is a very strong wind, like yesterday.
I had an agreement with the Universe, to help me with buying the land if it was a good land for us. And very quickly we found out that it wasn't, which saved us a lot of time and money. For which I am very grateful. I'll be seeking help with the next transaction. =^v^=
I also took some pictures of my recent knitted items, here is Capri:
And here is Azalea:
Lords & Ladies is growing, I've almost finished the lace on the first sleeve, but it's not an easy type of lace, oh no!, so it doesn't go as fast as I would like to. And I think I have found the perfect yarn for Lydia - I'm going to buy Turkish Samara (60% mohair, 40% acrylic) by Madame Tricote. I wasn't sure about the scratchiness of the mohair, but I got info from a Polish fellow blogger Agnieszka that it's nice and soft, so I'm going to give it a go. *^v^*
Polish readers, do you remember Oranżada Wyborowa? It can still be bought at the nearby village shop! *^v^*
