Another weekend has whizzed past in a mix of lie-ins, washing, band engagements & sunshine.
Am sorry that some parts of the UK didn't have great weather - its been another hot one here so many ice-creams have been eaten & glasses of Pimms drunk ;)
Yesterday we went strawberry picking - the jam cupboard is empty so it needed re-filling;
So simple - just strawberries, sugar & a splash of lemon juice. Made even simpler as my smallest assistant wanted to help - the reasoning? some of this jam would make perfect end of year pressies for a couple of his teachers!!
This morning, labels were written & the jars with plainer lids given strawberry themed hats;
4 big jars & 1 little one for us - should last a little while. Hopefully soon we'll be able to pick raspberries too and come September, blackberries.
We decided this morning that a long walk was in order - selling this to the boys now they are bigger is never easy - some days we're referred to them as Cushion1 & Cushion2 due to the amount of time they are sat on a sofa!! Today's selling point - walk, then lunch, walk again, ice-cream - it worked!!
Thorpeness to Aldeburgh - lunch bought from the Deli & eaten on the sea-wall. Return walk back along the beach with ice-creams from the little tea rooms as an end treat :)
No idea who these people were!! Was too busy today to get just a view!! Sizewell A&B to the left and Thorpeness village to the right.
I love this point on a Sunday - its peaceful - the Cushions have been joined by Senior Cushion and they've watched the Tour De France and now its Top Gear time. I get over an hours peace to sew, knit & blog :)
Have a good week - the end of term stuff starts to go up a gear this week so my blogging might be a tad hit & miss.
