Where has the time gone to since I last posted on here.
Firstly we had a week's holiday on the Dorset/Somerset border and went to the wedding of our youngest niece. The least said about the journey down there the better ..... 6 hours!!! About double the time we had expected. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary whilst there and my daughter and family took us out for afternoon tea......what a lovely treat. We visited several National Trust and English Heritage properties in the area but decided not to attempt the steep Gold Hill in Shaftesbury!!!
The weather has taken a decided dip since that week of blistering temperatures and now begins to feel quite autumnal....far to early. Some of the veggies have now finished and I have been pulling out french bean plants whilst Peter has been sorting out the strawberry runners and pruning the raspberries.
Now it has cooled down I am making the most of the time to paint the fence with preservative..... I am rapidly losing the will to live as it is such a boring, monotinous task.
I am trying to get some Christmas knitting/crochet and embroidery done. Still two items to complete before we go out to Seattle in October, let alone doing some Christmas shopping. I can do it, I can, I can, I can.
