No, this is not a bizarre new diet. We couldn't sleep, wondering what was happening as the votes were being counted in the Independence Referendum, so we got up at 3am to watch tv. By 5am we were flagging somewhat, so a few squares of chocolate kept us going. I haven't really mentioned the referendum before, as the blog is my little happy space, where the nasty outside world is not allowed to intrude ....... but you would probably have guessed that I was firmly in the NO camp when I referred to Alex Salmond as the Great Haggis, the Chief Turnip, the Head Numptie etc. We are delighted that the NO vote prevailed, and our family of nations isn't being ripped apart.
OK, back to the happy world of sewing! At patch'n'chat this afternoon we had just finished our cuppa when a lady approached and spoke to me. She waited for me to realise who she was ........ but as I hadn't seen a photo of her on her blog, the only clue I had was her accent. I was delighted to realise that it was Susan, who is over here with her husband visiting family and having a wonderful holiday. Maureen was entrusted with the camera to take a photo of us
we had a lovely chat, then all too soon it was time for me to leave. Susan had given me a parcel, which I didn't open until I got home. I was delighted to find this apron with OWLS!! Thank you very much Susan!
....... the gift tag is cute too!
now for the photos that I had planned to share with you today! Out in the garden, we are still getting courgettes, albeit tiny ones
the tiny beans aren't maturing
the honeysuckle is flowering again
and after three years, the everlasting sweetpea has finally flowered!
and of course we can't have the Friday post, without the Friday cake! I don't know what this is called, but it was delicious. It is made with crushed digestive biscuits, cranberries, marshmallows and condensed milk. It is made into a log, rolled in coconut, and then chilled in the fridge
the weather has been a bit grey and damp for the last couple of days, but hopefully it will improve over the weekend. Whatever the weather, I hope you have a good weekend, love Anne
