Monday monday

The weekend has been and gone, and a busy weekend it has been. We have had 2 parties to go too! On Saturday we went to Peter's cousins after Golf party. it was a quiet affair, but lovely to see everyone again. Sunday our next door neighbours invited us over to a BBQ/house warming party. Our new neighbours are lovely! He is a magician, a closeup magician, and managed to have me completely fooled, and now the girls have been practicing magic tricks all day! She is a physiotherapist, which is such a miracle sent from God , for me!! I am having problems with our NHS service and am now hoping to go and see my neighbour at her private practise, even if its for one session whilst I wait to see my NHS physio appointment on October 14th!

We also managed to squeeze in some blackberry picking on Saturday. We came home with just under 1lb 1/2. Already in the freezer waiting for another picking session this week, and then I will start jam making! I love this time of year, waiting for all our produce to start ripening, ready to make jams and chutneys. Our lettuce pickings have been brilliant this year, with 3 varieties on the go, we have had fresh lettuce daily for at least 4 weeks now. Spring onions were really tasty and smelled amazing. Our dwarf beans have produced a good yield also. I am waiting on our tomatoes to turn red, and my lack of patience may have me picking them still green and popping them on the windowsill to ripen them quickly

The bell peppers have not been too successful, i think it was the hail stone storms we had last month that battered them. Anyone else had problems this year?
I have my winter seed catalogue and have enjoyed browsing all my winter wishes! Lots of potato varieties, winter lettuce, cabbage, broccoli and lots more to entice me!
Last night, Pencil Lines sketch 149 went live with 3 more guest designers from My Little Shoebox joining us. I designed a circular sketch that is perfect with all the lovely shaped papers from MLS. Do pop over to check out all the inspiration form the design team.
