One of our neighbours left this basket of fruit and vegetables on our front porch today. She had been to the farmer’s market bought some things that she likes, put them in a basket, wrapped it and tied it with string. It was a lovely home-made gift and it totally blew me away. The fact that she gave up so much time and spent her Saturday afternoon doing this meant so much to me I can hardly put it into words. Maybe I’m emotional because I’m in a different country and starting to realise that. But this was huge for me today. A little home-made goes a long, long way.
