Or is it?
That said, if I do come to a complete standstill at 30c, it's going to be a long and fairly unproductive summer!
Well, I don't really mind being brought to a standstill to write a post today. I'd like to tell you about my week. It has been wonderful! It began with Buddy Boy and me sharing a birthday. I felt quite clever this year because I came up with a kid activity that I could enjoy as well. A local Oktoberfest event had activities for kids and they organised it so well that I was able to relax and enjoy adult company (and a cider) while the kids had a ball!!!
Buddy Boy and Pumpkin were able to enjoy being with their little friends. Some of my friends turned up and I had most of my family. I even managed to get a photo with all the younger folk that came. I love this photo soooo much!
Kate and Mark from Purple Pear farm. I was honoured that they took the trouble to catch public transport to come and meet us and so glad they did.
When you blog regularly with someone, you feel that you really know them. I couldn't wait to meet Kate and knew I would enjoy her company but she was even nicer than I expected. I didn't know so much about Mark but he is lovely too. They are both so knowledgeable and I learnt a new skill. Mark showed me how to 'choke' an onion. Apparently, if allowed to flower, the bulb doesn't develop as well due to the energy being used to create the flower. So by breaking the flower spike the bulb develops better!
Purple Pear Farm. One day......
