Its gone by in a bit of a blur really. We've been WWOOFing, been basket making, taken turns having a stomach bug thats taken ages to get rid of,discovered nits (managed to get through life without them fine until now!), foraging walk, gardening and I've gone back to work.
|helping clean up, honest. well, eating the sponge is helping, isn't it?|
|foot dipping (not quite paddling) in Hebden Bridge|
|a nice bit of motorway services|
|the ducklings were not safe|
|the chicks were protected from babies and predators|
|we had a great basketry teacher- this is what we all made|
|clean is a waste of time|
|poorly day on the farm.|
|how WWOOFing can work with baby- scything!|
And the journey home was awful- with dodgy tummies we needed lots of toilet stops.
Rainbow enjoyed the stops though.
|We did a foraging walk with Chris in Marsden|
|Had a chat with some policemen and their horses (what a van!)|
|And waved lots each time we passed each other, which happened a couple of times|
|Sutton I think!|
|The yellow park, watching his sisters|
|He had been stretching back just before, very laid back|
|Fish pie flicks well|
I was having a rather grumpy time after finishing up the shopping with all three kids. I really was ready for a sit down and a drink, but I wasn't allowed in the house. I was soooo fed up, wanting to get the shopping put away, freezer stuff in the freezer, and just Had Enough. Then Flower let slip my barring involved Cake. Suddenly all became bearable, and a few minutes later my sit down involved a lovely cake mixed, baked and washed up after by the girls- the shopping included the jam for the middle. It was a very good cake!
The boy loves being outside in the dirt. He grubs about in it, and eats it.Ants aren't a favourite, and the ones in the allotment hurt. Of course, we seem to grow thousands of ants.
|Doesn't the shed look lovely behind all the yummy berries-to-be?|
|aqualegia in the strawberry patch|
|Borage starting to flower|
|This tunnel has had so much use over the last 7 years, and still fun!|
