However this unplanned weekend at home did mean that I could finally get round to completely a few tasks from my to-do list.
First of which was making a batch of green tomato chutney. Despite a bumper crop of tomatoes this year very few have ripened. Thought I'd be clever and make a double batch - was a minor panic that the pan was going to be too small but it fitted with an inch or so too spare.

Its been a busy week what with work, an ill child and starting college. On my way to work this morning I popped into my favourite charity shop and the picture above just called out at me - it looks so like my 2 boys when they were smaller - right colouring and clothes too.
It was quickly paid for and loaded into my mode of transport - my much loved bike.
Earlier in the week another treat arrived for me - a new book. Am planning to try this weekend reclaiming business so shall start in a while when I turn off my computer and open a bottle of Adnams finest carbon-neutral beer :) and tune into Strictly Come Dancing.
Thank you to those that have read my blog so far and have commented.
Have a good evening xx

After months of reading the details of other peoples lives its time for me to share mine with you.
Not quite sure what to say today.
Hello I'm Vicki, I'm almost 40 and live in Suffolk with my husband and 2 sons (Ed 13 & Will 11).
I love all things vintage, messing about with my sewing machine, baking, making jams and spending time with my family.
I've been keeping a diary this year with pictures and memories from family events and days out so I guess this blog is the logical next step.
