At supper this evening I asked everyone in turn what had been their best thing about the weekend:
"When daddy painted the spider white"
"When I did something on the trampoline"
(the "something" being a flip which isn't allowed!)
(she made Spaghetti bolognaise for supper tonight and a delicious lemon drizzle cake yesterday)
"Bringing Lucy toast and tea in bed"
(what can I say, the man is a saint!)
A last minute dash up to the allotment this evening to pick strawberries before the heavens opened in a spectacular thunder storm.
(my very first sweetpeas!)
Coming home and making strawberry and redcurrant jam from the neglected fruit that I had picked last weekend.
Having fabulous neighbours who, when asked for "some empty jam jars pretty please", produced a proper box of Lakeland jam jars with checky lids and labels! (and all I'd been expecting was some old marmalade and coffee jars!)
Finding the time to quickly make some of Moogsmum's Banana and Chocolate Muffings in time for pudding.
And having a really beautiful daughter to model the muffings for me!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend too!
P.S. The gorgeous jam badge is from a lovely giveaway by Snapdragon's Garden.
(I'll be sending some photos pronto!)
