Day 242

Standard

Preparing for this years learn something new everyday class with Shimelle, I did it last year and it really helped put what could have been a very difficult month into perspective. It is one of my favourite things that I have done and I regularily take it out and look at it. Although I am hoping for an easier September this year I am still looking forward to seeing what I can learn from it.

Inspired by Nina ove at Tabiboo I bought this months country living and headed off with My friend Liz to pick blackberries to make some liqueur. We were a bit disiapointed to start as we just couldn’t find any so we picked some sloe’s instead

luckily we had met a lovley family who told us where we might find some so off we went, there was some lovely ones just out of reach

but we did eventually get enough to take home, always wash your blackberries you never know what you might find

when you’ve rinsed them

you need to cook them and squish them through a sieve

Can’t believe it’s Saturday again, Annie was never into pink when she was little girl so I never got to play with the kind of toys a friend at work bought in for another friends grandaughter but i did get to have fun photographing them.

Day 240

Standard

Two more roosters and some chickens, I forgot all about the little blue rooster that holds my dish cloth next to my sink everyday. I had been picking up and putting down the little jug in a local charity shop all week, it was only when i spotted a blue and white one on another blog that i realised what he was. So I went there today and brought him home.
