**pulls out a fresh tissue**
Ads and I had plums and spring onions from the garden. Leafy had free range eggs. We each converged today, North and South, on Thames where the Flatcats had jars of pickle (and H, at the end of her holiday) and we played swapsies. We came home with eggs and pickle; Leafy went home with plums, spring onions and pickle. I love to barter.
And then there was the divine meal we all shared before hitting the road in our respective directions. Sometimes the simplest days are just the best.
Oh and we got H back, too. The kids haven't even had a fight... yet...
