freshly laid

July 8, 2009 at 11:15 am 3 comments

We visited our friends Nicky and Richard yesterday and met their lovely new baby Thomas.  We usually receive a warm, slobbery welcome from their 3 dogs but they howled a hello instead from their kennel in the garden.  Little Harry, their newest addition to the family before Thomas the usurper came along, bounced up and down extra specially hard to be sure we’d notice him.

Anyway we had a lovely evening but you’re probably wondering where the sowing, growing or cooking connection is?  We went bearing gifts from the allotment (cabbage and courgette) and left with freshly laid eggs.  Inspector Mikey has confirmed their superior grade and quality this morning.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
