Another hello to Karan and Shona on bloglovin, welcome on board
Been a while hasn't it? here is a quick post to remind you who I am !
We have been really busy with the bees and gardens. Honey is being spun, veggies and fruit are starting to come in and we didn't grow it to waste it.
We have also been getting the field ready for a little event.
"Grandma" wheedled our youngest granddaughter (soon to be nine) "Can I have a camping sleepover party for my birthday? "Of course you can" She has a nice little group of friends, so no problem. As often happens in this family the thing evolved and it transpired that each child would be accompanied by her parents and siblings! Well the weather has been glorious and we know all the parents so why not!
Over the next couple of weeks an odd (!) auntie or two invited themselves along, so we ended up having a bit of a bash last night!!!
The classic combination of a hot day, children, sundry dogs and a river meant that the bouncy castle was almost superfluous. In the evening the children used it a sort of clubhouse while the adults discussed the attributes of different wines, beers and spirits. Purely in the line of market research you understand. ?
Games of rounders and frizbee were played, but mostly it was swimming and sitting on the raft that we keep in the river (as we are big kids at heart)
Here she is with her mum...
And guess who else came to the party and yet again didn't understand what it was all about !?
Hopefully I will be back to my blog soon, as I have nearly finished the most pressing Civic Society Issues and will take a break from them for a couple of weeks, which will give me a little computer time.
Has anyone else got a bumper crop of Blackberries, which are already ripening ? Picked a couple of pound today in a few minutes, Mmmmm what to do with them/ Any ideas folks?
Off to do some watering, apart from the thunder storm last weekend we have had no rain for weeks here and there are cracks in the garden that you could fall down.
