Busy Busy Busy

I have had to stop the bedroom for the time being as I had a rapidly growing ironing pile so I have had to decamp to iron us some fresh clothes especially with the weather having gone chillier in recent days although today has been bright in places but there is that nip in the air that defines autumn.  It was always at this time of the year that we used to go to my Nan's for the weekend to start harvesting the apples particularly the keepers for storing and overwintering and use during the winter months.

I have just sat for 5 minutes to rest my back but no doubt will be back at the slog again shortly.

I have had a very nice tea tonight - OH cooked Shepherd's pie and it was delicious and very warming. Good simple pleasant tasty food that does you good.  I think he is taking the remnants to warm up for his dinner tomorrow to work they have a microwave for the staff's use.

I need to get some veggies frozen down in the freezer as I am fast getting to the bottom of my little stockpile.  Will have to see what they have available at the weekend and I also want to make Pam Corbin's vegetable stock paste as I have nearly run out of that too.  I also have some flapjacks to make for the Macmillan Coffee Morning at work tomorrow.

Right upwards and onwards I hope life is good for you all.  Remember your glass is never empty its always half full.  Just a matter of tempering one's attitude a much more positive way of dealing with things.

Catch you soon.




  1. This must be a bittersweet time of the year Pattypan, bringing with it as it does memories of a happy childhood and your grandparents' home. We only have one tree with a good crop this year - the early eater has bitter pit, and not many of them edible.

    I hope you enjoyed your Flapjack session.

  2. Happy times indeed BB - I have very fond memories of the family being together - it was a lot larger then and those memories sustain me. Some of Nan's trees had bitter pit too. It does spoil them but Nan had quite a lot of trees. Take care. Pattypan xx [hugs]
