Technical problems here, so just a short post.
I've been collecting up my apples and pears from the five trees in the garden. They're only young trees, and so the harvest has been small. But they are delicious, particularly the apples.
I've got Cox's Orange Pippins - just a very small tree in a pot, Egremont Russets and Ribston Pippins, which taste superb. Apples don't last long in this house though, so before long I'll be buying them from the supermarket again. Our local greengrocer closed last week, which is a shame. It would be nice if another one opened, but I don't hold out much hope.
We've had a week of birthday celebrations here as the biggest boy turned 10 on Thursday. A whole decade! There's been bowling and pizza, new books and a new memory card for his camera, and yesterday a much-anticipated visit to Cotswold Falconry Centre. I have photos, but Photoshop has been wiped off of my laptop, and as I can't locate the disc, at the moment I can't transfer pictures onto the computer. I had a bit of a technological meltdown mid-week. It is so utterly frustrating when for no apparent reason it all goes wrong. But no doubt it will all be sorted in the end, somehow. In the meantime I might just have to rely on picture-free posts. Yikes. Hope a good week is had by all. I shall be trotting up and down on school runs, doing all the normal weekly things and almost certainly grumbling about technology. But I do love it really.
