Last notes:

  • The new sewing machine has arrived. I went for a Toyota again as the last one lasted since 1976... Ive been so busy though that I havent even opened the box... I may leave that to the children to do. I am looking forward to getting back to some sewing sunday adventures though.

  • Made lots of green bean chutney the night before last.

  • Cleaned my kitchen ready to paint...

  • Going to pick blueberries, damsons, blackcurrants and plums to make a mixed fruit jam this afternoon. Im calling it black jam on account of the colours... plus we pick the apple crop today and the rest of the plums.

  • Lighting the fire and cooking up in the garden tonight whilst gazing heavenward for shooting stars. 'They' are having venison from the woods, Im having bean burgers and boiled potatoes with runner beans. Not sure how many more runner beans I can take????

Im smiling... hope you are too.
