Snapshot: A weekend of ups and downs
How it happens, sometimes, isn't it? I'll spare you the downs. Here are the ups.
:: Blue skies...
:: ... and a picnic
:: Strawberry picking! At last.
:: Jumping in muddy puddles
:: A joint 2nd/5th birthday party that was so huuuuuge it necessitated 57 party bags. Surely a record?
:: Birthday celebrations of a different kind with a grown-up meal out
:: A much-needed haircut for my boy
:: Snapped my favourite front garden in full wild bloom
:: And I went to my very first supper club, which I'll write about in more detail in another post. It definitely deserves its own.
The owners of the PYO were saying this season's been awful, and that they (and many others like them) are really struggling. So, a little plea - next time the sun shines, please support your local strawberry farm. It's such a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon, especially with kids. I'll post my favourite ice cream and jam recipes over the rest of the summer. Mmmm...
