This year the plums are really big and nice. Unfortunately the tree with my favorite yellow plums has something wrong with it and didn’t have any fruit on it this year. But, theses were very nice this year. only picked a few this year. may get some more this weekend if I get round to it and there’s any left. So, this year I made an Apple and Plum strudel and a plum pie with the plums. No jam this year as I wasn’t prepared enough. But I have gotten a good recipe from Elsie so I will be trying it next year when I get some Kilner Jars.
Today was really all about cleaning the house. But, then I found this Embroidery that my Granny gave me. She started it long ago when my mum was little and said i should finish it. I haven’t had a go at it yet though but i thought I’d share it as what she has done already is so nice.
I haven’t done Embroidery before so hopefully it will look as nice as hers when i finish it. I am looking forward to going to Hobby Craft and getting all new Embroidery thread as she didn’t have any of the original colours left.
My Big Boy Graduated PreSchool this week. It was really emotional. I don’t really think it was a big deal till it actually happend. All his teachers were upset. I realized how much i would miss them. They have all been so great! I made his teacher all an Apple Cozy. I think they really are the cutest little things. :) Alexander doesn’t like Apples so i will have to come up with a banana Cozy next! Then on the last day of school it was sports day and a family picnic. It turned out to be really fun! and thank goodness the weather stayed dry.
