Fresh Strawberry Jam

I decided to pay my sadly neglected vegetable garden a visit today after I had hung out the washing. and even though I haven’t weeded in months it still offered up to me a wonderful bounty. 1.3 kgs of fresh strawberries.

Monday meanderings

Today I went for a walk around Mt Maunganui. It was such a bright, crisp morning, walking around, while watching the sunlight dance off the waves. It was nice to get out of the house for a bit, knowing that I have a lot of sewing to do so will be stuck inside for a bit. And also was nice to give Brylie a run around and a play in the sand (I really need Jonny to build a sand-pit […]
