It seems to have a been a little while since I last posted. I have had a busy month at work and slap bang right in the middle of the lovely warm sunny weather I was hit by the vomiting and diarrhoea virus. This then swept like lightening through the rest of the family and has taken us all a little while to fully recover.
Our sunny days here in Hampshire were glorious and as you can see involved flower picking _ even though it was a dandelion and our lovely cat posed beautifully and patiently for us. We could almost see the thought bubbles above his head-"Lets hope this will be quick -I need to flop in the sun somewhere and catch the rays" Its amazing how much he will put up with for certain members of the family.
Daisy flowers were made into chains and ankles were decorated
Some people - much against their Mummy's advice turned a little pink in the sunshine.
And then the sunshine disappeared and my thoughts turned to cooking and a batch of plum chutney was prepared and made
Daughter made some coffee cupcakes:
I've been busy making more preserves but more about that later.
I still looking for my new chickens and have made a definite decision to get bantams . I'm just searching now about possible sources and hope to update you in due course. There seems to be a shortage of them and apparently they are in very high demand this year!
I'm sorry this is a short and sweet post but with the youngsters coming and going at home, time is short! Hoping to get back to you soon.............................
