Busy, busy, busy. 

We made our trip to the school outfitters on Tuesday and are all set for the big day now.

Alfie had his x-ray on Wednesday and he is still not allowed to put weight on it. However, plans have been made for me to stay during his transition sessions and we will review it after that. Not how I envisaged the start of big boys school but never mind.

Thursday morning I made lemon curd for the Delph Show this coming Saturday; on Friday baked a cake for the same.  

Friday evening I had a really lovely night out with some of the mums from school and extended friends of others.

I planted out my Christmas harvest potato tubers, complete with homegrown compost, on Friday afternoon.

If you fancy doing the same you need to get them in by the end of the first week of September. Here is a link that will help you achieve home grown potatoes for the Christmas table!

Also purchased some bulbs, amongst them were Tulip Arabian Mystery


and these beautiful Anemones

All can be planted out between now and November and the first should flower from about April.

This morning I made Thyme flavoured soda bread with a poppy seed crust, again for the Delph Show and I went along today and look what happened!

OMG. I was so chuffed, can't explain! It is a great little local show and so happy with myself. 

Here are more lovely pictures from the day.

Well done little man Seb Daw.

Can't manage any more of a post than this today.xx
