Autumn Days

Roasting some of our crop of tomatoes with basil and garlic.


A stunner from the veg box.


Apples, plums and blackberries begging for some crumble topping.



The roasted toms, ready for the freezer.

Wasn't me !



Shoes, onions and herbal tea-bags beware !

and then on to here ....


Willoughby Memorial Gallery, Corby Glen for a wonderful exhibition from the Lincolnshire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers " Ewe to You" ( with an incredible sighting of 6 deers in a field on the way across the County )
Lovely items on display from some very talented people, the highlight for me, was being allowed a play on a spinning wheel ... feel a new hobby coming on !

Easy day Smiles

A day for celebrating the Apple.
Apple Day in Wragby Village.
Take your apples and get them turned into wonderful juice.

Identify your apples from these trays of beauties, with experts on hand to help if your still struggling.
We think our apple ( top picture ) is a Spartan or maybe a McIntosh but as the queue had only reached number 28 for a spot with the experts and we had ticket number 66, we're happy to do our own identifying.

Smiles of a very lucky lady

Parcels of pressies.




With such wonderful treasures inside ( I admit there was G&B's but someone ate it .. who could that have been ! )

Huge thanks to Becks for Knitted Toys and the long gone choc and to Emma for I love dirt - a book I have been yearning for ( how did you know ) Woodland Happy Families , a book of Doodles that I can't wrestle away from K and O's Winter hat.



A gorgeous hat to keep my little man's head warm.




And a present for Emma Joan from the most thoughtful girl ever, you are an incredible friend Romy.Thank you.




Seasons balls for O, that fit so perfectly in his hands, to squish, to throw, to roll, to chew, to giggle at ... endless fun.


Thank you Becks, my friend.





That you have all thought of us is truly a gift beyond measure.Thank you.
