I have had a good week and apart from a couple of days the weather has been beautiful.....

......more blackberry picking, jam and bread making this week, forgot to take a photo of the wheaten loaf and it disappeared very quickly!! Will share later in the week when I make another.

Lots of walking and some gardening in the park....

.....busy bee.


All the usual household chores......

....a visit to The Knitting and Stitching Show in Manchester with friends....
