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.
