Pickles and I took our walk through the farmer’s field on this late afternoon and I noticed that the sloe berries are out. They will be ready for harvest just after the first cold snap in September.
My mother-in-law likes sloe gin and so I always make her a batch and put it in her Christmas basket. She and her best friend, Linda, claim that there are little arguments over who gets the sloe gin on a cold winter night. I don’t really believe them because they are very reasonable women and I think they probably share nicely.
A few days ago I got a message that a certain somebody wanted to come to my house for a visit. She’s five years old now!
We found a pink cowgirl hat and two fun games at a charity shop. I think I’ve turned her on to the joys of second-hand shopping because we spent quite a bit of time mulling over all of the possibilities and we walked away with pure treasure and we only spent £5!
