Lose ends before our holiday.

Well, I have been quite busy the last couple of days getting ready for the holiday, we leave at 8am tomorrow. But I have had time to do other stuff as well. My chives in the front garden are growing so well that I thought it was such a shame to lose them by just cutting them back. So, I looked on the internet and found a way to dry them in the microwave - witness below the process. Cool huh?

I laid the chives on kitchen paper, covered them over with it and then put them in the microwave on full power for 1 minute. They come out just perfectly dried then I snipped them and put them in a jar!

The boys had a couple of friends round for cake and ice cream on Friday so I made an almond pound cake with cranberries and fresh lemonade, too. Just gorgeous on a hot day! 

Plus I have also been making lemon curd for the Denshaw show next weekend. This is the first time I have entered anything like this. I delivered it plus a papercraft entry to a friend on Friday, to take on my behalf, so wish me luck and I will report back.

Yesterday afternoon I did a bit of weeding and also planted our wedding favours in the garden from the wedding we attended at the end of June. They were our name cards that had flower seeds within the card. I really hope they come up before the end of summer. 

 I think they are just a mixture of cutting flowers.

Well, that is it until after next weekend when I will hopefully telling you about the fun we had in some sun at Scarborough.xx
