85 not out

DB's birthday today, we have just been to the hospice tearoom for a cream tea, yummy. Needless to say supper tonight is off, we will have a snack later.

Funny day, its quite windy, sunny then cloudy, a few spots of rain and back to sun again.

Not a lot done today, DB was in the garden for an hour or so this morning, I had a couple of jobs to do in the house.

I bottled the elderflower cordial, almost 4 litres, will leave it for a while and see if it clears, otherwise will use finings and re bottle it.

Aldi tomorrow. Two weeks menus done no meat needed, just stock up on dry goods, fruit and veg. DB picked another pound of strawberries. Our neighbour has family arriving so took a bowl full over to her for dessert.

Watching Ascot..............


  1. Happy Birthday to Edwin!

  2. Happy Birthday to DB!!!!! 85 years young is quite a wonderful accomplishment! How nice to celebrate at the hospice tea room, too.

    Oh, wish you could share some strawberries with me - the elderflower cordial, too. ;)

    We've had about 3/4" of rain in the last 24 hours. All is muddy.
