Howdy folks, what a day!
Up and down, up and down and up and down again to school for my Biscuits' Sports Day. Of course the usual happened, school gave us unconfirmed dates, didn't actually confirm with the parents but all the kiddies knew and most didn't bother to pass that info on......so I found out at 8.45am this morning that my presence would be required at 9.30am (it turned out for one and a half hours.. ahhh!!) and again at 1.30pm (only an hour..phew!). Eldest Biscuit's was almost rained off and I was expected to capture their escapades on video for the Husband to see but of course talked over most of it and missed bits. Oh well! I did my best with the talent (or lack thereof) to record it for prosperity.
It has been decidedly chilly here in my part of Scotland for most of the week, after what was a spectacular weekend, whether the sun has shone or not so I got around to making the bunting for the garden parasol just in case warmth was attached to the appearance of sunshine. It was just after completion so I think I may have sewn some wishes into it without realizing, that or some Gypo magic. It took the best part of a day to do and I took the skin off my pinky using the pinking shears which is why they are named that way I figure. I'm pleased with the end result so I shall suffer my injuries (not quietly, never quietly!)...
The clematis in our garden is quite resplendent just now, Hubby is desperate to cut it back but he's been warned there will be no more cake or biscuits if he does. He's not silly enough to risk it! I love climbers! Love how they seem alive, search and grab hold of anything in their surroundings. I love to cover fences in them too, a wall of life! The clematis in the photo also has a dual purpose, other than looking glorious, of keeping the living room cool, only letting in dappled sunshine. I do love it so!
I had to bake something of course this week, have been promising myself Peanut Butter Fudge care of Sophie Dahl but got sidetracked by yet another yearning for lemons. I was sensible and practical in making two so some could be frozen. Not greed you understand!
I'm quite sure if I looked close enough at the citrus juicer I'd see myself akin to a mangled reflection in a fairground Hall of Mirrors.
And finally.....my poor baby Hamish AKA Beau-Beau has a sore eye and of course there is no photo of that but I felt I needed to hear a collective "aw!!" for him. So whenever you are ready.........thanking you!
