Holidays are here.......

From today, Monday, I am taking a little Blogging break, as Lovely Hubby is whisking me off to a tiny cottage in Devon to celebrate my birthday. this birthday has been creeping up on me faster than I dare to think, but I have now reached the grand old age of a number that starts with a five and ends with a big fat zero.
#
There is nothing for it but to grit my teeth and hope that the next 50 years is as varied and enjoyable as the last 50!! And if it's not I want my money back!!

So I leave you with a picture of my labours of Friday afternoon, (made just before the piggy fiasco). Eleven jars of Bramble Jam. I had to make it.........I accidently left the freezer door ajar all night and the 3 kilos of blackberries we picked last September defrosted...........senility already!!

It can only get better........she says.....laughing uncontrollably and falling off her chair.

  12. Clearly 1960 was a very good vintage. (Guess who also has a "special" birthday this year?) Sunshine just carries on here in Devon so hope you're having a great time.

    Well done to your parents, they did an amazing job looking after all the animals, and all the gardening they did.. brilliant. :-)
