Excuses, Excuses!

There's no excuse really for not keeping up this blog, other than gallivanting around the countryside in our dear old caravan!

I have so much to write about......lovely holidays, fabulous Woolfest and feeling so much better than I've felt for a long time, that I think it's put me off starting. But NO MORE EXCUSES!!


We have actually spent this weekend at home, we needed to cos both the front and back garden was knee high in weeds, and the veggie garden..........well... the least said the better! Despite its sorry, neglected state, we have had a good year for veg, especially courgettes. In fact we have eaten courgettes with almost every meal. We have frozen them, made soup with them, eaten them in stir frys, curries and salads, given them away to family, friends and workmates and they still keep on coming!! It's great!!!!


I have also discovered a previously hidden obsession too! Photographing mushrooms!!!
They look so cute I just can't resist taking a pic! Here's a couple of my 'babies'!!


I love this one!





This one has a friend!


And this ones having a party!!



Simple things please simple minds eh!!

Welcome back from all that trecking around the countryside, it's great to see your blog back in action! So delighted to hear that you are feeling a lot better - long may it last.
As a recipient of one of your fab courgettes (it was more like a marrow in size mind) I would like to say how wonderful it was stuffed with lamb rice roaseted in a tamarind and tomato sauce. Yummm! and thank you.

Cool pictures! I'd love to be able to roam the countryside in a caravan taking pictures of the undergrowth!!

I found your blog via Helen Chilton's and fell in love with these mushroom pics and the idea of waterproof knitted hats (next entry)I had no idea that was possible, do you take orders?

I like taking 'shroom pics too - is that a sticky bun mushroom? They're supposed to be edible they are(aka boletus)...
