Summer definitely arrived at the weekend. We had girls camping in the garden, a sleepover with almost no sleep. Lots of tired but happy girls. This called for another BBQ and of course fruit salad.
I also spent some time making the fabulous Granola from Sue's recipe at The Quince Tree.
I don't think this is going to last very long, being very very good with yogurt.
Crochet also had a wee bit of a look in. I'm following the ripple pattern from Attic 24 but making the waves variable in depth. I decided to use mainly blues but with a vibrant pink and some white to give a bit of a lift. K is hoping that this will eventually end up in her bedroom as a blanket. Keep your fingers crossed.
Sunday brought a visit from a gentleman who lived in our house in the 40's. He was able to tell us lots about how the house looked when his family lived here. At the time his father was the Rector for the local church, it being sold in the early 50's when it became too expensive for the church to repair. He brought pictures too which showed that the house has not really changed very much although the garden worked much harder then. They also had live-in help but no heating so I suppose that's a bit of a trade off.
Today has been lots of catching up and visits to the doctor. To stay away from work for another couple of weeks. You know what I am not in the least bothered which for me is a bit weird. I am sure that by the middle of June I will be raring to get back into the thick of it all.


  1. So glad you enjoyed the granola Helen. I was just looking in my cupboard to see if I had enough oats to make a batch.

  2. Nice to see you again. Looks like the weather has cooled down and calls for warm food tonight.
