I did actually upload these photos on Sunday, but haven’t had chance to sit down until now!!
- There was a blip at the start of the week when the tumble drier broke down – a minor disaster when you have a week full of B+B guests ahead of you. Luckily, Mr H-L used to be an engineer so was able to find and sort the problem.
2. Another annoyance when you need lots of eggs for guests’ breakfasts is when the hens lay in the field in a patch of metre-high stinging nettles instead of in their nice, easy-to-get-to coop.
3. The week got better, however, and we were in for a spell of hot, sunny weather.
4. The Elderflowers are nearly ready to harvest for cordial.
5. We took No.3 Son out for supper one night as he had an Inset day at school before breaking up for half term.
6. After another sunny morning, the skies turned black and we had the most amazing thunderstorms for a couple of days.
7. There are lots of baby rabbits in the field at this time of year and they spend a lot of time in our garden. Can you spot this one?
8. Our local farm shop was having an open day, so we took The Boys along. This fabulous yarn-bombed car was the first sight to greet us!
9. I had a nice chat with the equally colourful Tamsyn G who is a Master of yarn art.
10. Look closely and you will see an antique sewing machine that has been transformed into a light complete with dimmer switch in the form of a cotton reel! If it wasn’t £185 it would have gone home with me there and then. I may have to use some of our B+B takings to go back and buy it…..
11. We all had some of the hog roast that was on offer. No, it wasn’t the slightest bit cold, but apparently wearing a beanie whatever the weather is cool when you’re twelve.
12. I had a go at some simple flower arranging in the form of a flower crown.
13. No.3 Son put my efforts to shame as his was MUCH better than mine!
14. Together, they made a pretty table decoration for a few days.
15. Craftwise, this week I made some keyrings for the school fair.
16. Finished! These socks are now blocked and ready to send to New Zealand just in time for the colder weather.
See you next week!
