Autumn Freebie

I'm not too happy once the weather changes, we live on the edge of the water so are at the moment being bombarded with stormy rain and wind, lovely to watch but not when you  have to fight with a tarpaline on our summer house roof, with all the hospital things going on we didn't get around to fixing it

.I saw this ad on google I think it's lovely
I thought a bit of comfort food was called for and all the better when it's for free, blackberries from the hedgerow hazelnuts and apples from the garden and a sqiushy pear from the fruitbowl
cook the fruit with sugar and a touch of vanilla essence

Make a crumble with flour, butter, oats and chopped hazelnuts and sprinkle on the fruit.
Bake untill golden brown
Grab the dish before it's all gone and spoon a big dollop into a bowl with icecream.

Ahhhh only 7 weeks to half term

Have a good  week

Come and have a nose around

We had a trip out yesterday as it was our Wedding Anniversary, sometimes it's nice to just have a wander, we went to a local antiques centre, and for once I had my camera with me, do you see anything you fancy ?

 We arrived rather late so I didn't take many pics outside they have a lot of tin signs etc I will have to go back.
There are floors crammed with furniture.
With something for everyone.

sorry you can't see the prices
Next time I go I will take pics of the outside.

My lovely daughter brought these sunflowers home for us, they are so cheerful and a nice change from the usual flowers florists sell. Thank You :)

Lovely to see the sun is shining, I am trying to catch up on all the things I haven't done in the school holidays as it's back to work next week for me, it's always lovely to see the 4 yr olds arrive on their first day, they look so tiny.

I'm off  to have a cup of tea in the garden before I get to work,  you can join if you like

 Sorry about the bad manners

I hope your all having a good week
