Around Here

We picked a total of 4kg of blackcurrants. Which resulted in 10 jars of blackcurrant jelly, 1 ltr of Cassis and 1 ltr of cordial.  Yum.

I also made my first batch of plum and cardamom jam as well as pear and caramel butter. I have now run out of jars...which I think Kevin is slighltly relieved about as I may have had a slight jam making obsession. 

The chicks are growing (and decidedly less cute).

I've got a growing stack of hexies.

And a growing stack of samples in for the next edition of The Crochet Project.

Its summer holidays, and so I spend my time attempting to juggle children and work. Some days are  all day TV and Cereal/Georgia cuts her own hair/dog gets into the chickens/chickens get into the house/ failures. Others are a blissful balance of productivity and fun. Can you guess which is the more frequent?
