    Have had a very stressful year, what with school closure, son being ill, hubbie being ill, looking for new job etc etc!!
    However have been on Summer hols now for three weeks and am starting to feel benefit of this as beginning to relax.

  4. Wet.

    Its been raining for ages now, load to get done, but prevented going outside due to downpours.

    Received new Maslin/Jam pan yesterday, and today was given some Plums which where turned into 2 nice jars of jam.

    When this weather dries up i'm going to be very busy cutting and clearing on the veg patch.

    And as yet, no tomatoes even close to ripening.
