Saturday, 6 June: After celebrating Colin’s birthday on Friday night, he dropped me off at the farm and I went back to work. Upon my return, it was just Dominique and I. Pam takes one of us to Stratford every weekend, leaving on Friday night, to help out at the Saturday market. There is also a market on Sunday, but Pam manages that by herself. Pam and her companion return to the farm on Monday afternoon to resume work. Dominique and I ended up having a tiring day of weed-pulling.
Sunday, 7 June: Aside from a few tasks which need to be done every day, like managing the sprouts and watering the greenhouse, I got the day off. I spent most of my day reading; my weapon of choice is The Stand by Stephen King. Later that evening, Colin picked up a pizza on his way home from work and we played card games for the remainder of the evening.
Monday, 8 June: It rained for quite some time and the lightning made it unsafe to work in the field. After cleaning the basement, Colin picked me up on Monday night for an evening in London. We met up with my friend, Clare, and Colin’s roommate, Aziz, for a quick dinner, a movie (Mad Max: Fury Road) and some card games.
