It's year of happy time again so here are this weeks 'three things'.
Number one :
Last Saturday we went out for a family lunch, we had a lovely Italian meal by the harbour in a nearby town. I has Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni, which is my favourite, so it was a real treat.
After lunch we called in at the shops and I bought some lovely new craft supplies, these are for my next make for The Craft Clubs exhibition, the theme is Peter Pan, so I'm looking forward to starting this make
This week is the gorgeous Horse chestnut tree in the garden. Despite being stuck in the house at lot at the moment, due to a pesky health flare up. It's lovely to have a little bit of Autumn to enjoy
just outside in the garden. Happy Happy, how wonderful the leaves look in the sunshine.
Even though 'BBC Countryfile' said last Sunday what a 'Mast Year it has been (a bumper year when the trees have a huge number of nuts and berries) We appear to have very few conkers coming off the tree this year. So I was a pleased as punch when I found this one.
So far this is all we've found off the tree, we have lots of husk but there are not many conkers inside them this year. I do love a conker that wonderful colour they have when they are fresh from the tree, with so many memories of looking for them as a child.
This week is Castles and Candy floss, this Thursday here in the UK there was a national teachers strike. So 'L' came to visit for the day. It always good fun when he comes to visit and I managed to be out of bed for two very hectic and frenzied games of Ludo.
I'm sure nobody quite plays Ludo, like we do here at the Summerhouse despite being accused of witchcraft when I got exactly the numbers I needed each time, 'L' did manage to win one game fuelled by the sugar in all that Candy Floss.
I hope you had a great week
