A walk in my garden in the early morning always brings me much joy and delight. I've been pulling out barrow loads of weeds from down beside the house and feeding them to the chooks. They are pleased to have lots of goodies to forage in, and it's looking much tidier down the side. My KK from school gave me a garden arch, so I was out in the cool of the evening last night putting it together. I have always wanted a garden arch. I am going to put it at the side of the house leading down the little path, and the children are delighted, as they have a secret cubby down there, and think it will be thier new grand entrance.
A big HELLO to Hong Kong - my regular visitor that never comments. I am told she is very shy. I have addapted my settings so anyone is able to comment now, so am hoping to hear from her, and Charlotte too. Hong Kong is Barking Mad's sister who grew up in the same town as me. She was here on holidays for Christmas and generously brought presents. Look at my georgous new pin cushion (she knows I love them!) and a lovely little note book. Thank you so much Anne and I'm glad we can keep you in touch with home.
Since being on holidays I have reclaimed the kitchen. I put my little Dick and Jane apron on, and feel like a real housewife!! I cooked a "casserole" yesterday (much to Mr Flowergarden's surprise and delight -he loves them) and even baked a Marbled Cheesecake Slice. I took some over to share with Ric Rac and Mr Ric Rac for afternoon tea. If you would like to share some too, here is the recipe...
