Fluke ...

Hiya,
None Gaming related post.

So I've had a wave of good luck recently.
I've been looking for accommodation and I have left it immensely late, I saw an advert and got in touch with the landlord, he invited me and my buddies to go check this place out. I kid you not, It was like a sterotypical post war, squalor, shit on the walls, filthy place. I was shocked. I had the old "It will all be cleaned and fixed!"
So, I went back and knocked and spoke to a random tenant, turns out that this landlord had promised very similar things!

She recommended a place down the road and I went on my search. I found a beautiful seafront view, nice room with a bay window, cheap and .. i say again Seafront!
So I've booked that place and I have accommodation!




Then today.. I went shopping. I popped to the farmers market and brought some eggs, and some wild boar sausages... nomnomnom. I saw a little competition and decided to give it a go. It was "spot the rogue item".
They had placed random food items, like a salad bag on a meat stall... spot the rogue item!

I found them all, and submitted my entry.....

I won the hamper!!!

Thank you Aberystwyth!

Apologies for the bad quality photo shoot, the camera is semi-broken, but this is what I got!
  1. Bag of Lettuce
  2. Free Range Eggs
  3. Mushroom Pate
  4. Mild Honey Mustard
  5. Welsh Summer Honey
  6. Lemon Marmalade
  7. Crab Apple Jelly
  8. Red Pesto
  9. Spelt + oatmeal biscuits
  10. £10 gift voucher for plants
  11. Salmon
  12. Coriander plant
  13. Dry Cured Bacon
  14. Roasted Welsh Beef
  15. Welsh Cooked Ham
  16. Goats Cheese

The stuff that was priced I totalled to around £30, the unpriced stuff would be bumping up to... possibly even... £50!

I'm going to be in the newspaper, so I'll look out for it, and grab a copy for on here... whilst It will only be a little text part, go me, and again if by pure random chance that someone knows them or reads them, thank you Welsh Farmers Market.

I am a very happy.
I am very fluky.
