In the Garden

Ive grown my first Cucumber and I’m getting lots of courgettes and it won’t be long for the tomatoes to ripen exciting times ahead.

My Ellie Finished school for the summer this week, where did the time go year 7 done now for year 8 in September.


Charlie is busy with cadet events and with his Sunday job how they grow up and become adults is quiet scary at times, You just have to sit back and watch, and let them enjoy life.

Tried this new Pimms Cider for the first time it is so lovely perfect for a hot summers day


Yummy Bakes Kitchen

I have been making some strawberry jam as the cupboards are empty I can’t buy jam anymore after knowing how easy it is to make it would be a sin, 😉

This heat makes none of us feel like eating so I made a simple summer pasta with some fresh vegetables and tomato sauce.

Something Crafty

My friend Gemma has been helping me to learn the art of crochet and I finally made a square and then made three more on my own,

I never thought I would be able to crochet and I can I’m really pleased with myself.

Now I will be crocheting everything and anything LOL.
