We got home at lunch time on Monday, so after unpacking the van, I got all the towels and quilt covers in the wash and on the line, we always tidy the van before we drive home, and once home I sort again, removing anything which won't keep. Tomorrow all the bedding and towels will be packed back in, so other than food and clothes it's ready to go, we hope to be away in July for at least one weekend.
It was also pleasing to have a harvest ready, we had salad for tea, and loads of fruit and ice cream, there  were many more berries, but I just picked enough for our tea. I think I am going to make a summer pudding this week. I love being able to cut flowers from my raised bed.
Tuesday, we had our afternoon tea with our sign group, one lady Gwen left the group last month as she moved away from the area, she surprised everyone by attending the tea, which made the afternoon a huge success. We sat looking over the local marina at huge posh boats, the tea was wonderful. As for my results, I came 3rd out of 7, which was very pleasing, I got a certificate and a small cup.


  1. Congratulations on your exam, great result!
    Your garden has produced some tasty and eye catching results too.

  2. Well done on the certificate and cup, and good looking fruit in your dish

  3. Great harvest and well done with the signing.

  4. Congratulations on your result. Your garden has done well. I think it will be a few more weeks before I get cucumbers.

  5. Well done on all counts, it is so good to eat the fruits of your labours.

  6. Fresh home grown produce always taste so much better. Well done on your sign language award.

  7. Very well done. I can tell how much you've enjoyed the class and it seems you've made some good friends too. Your cut flowers are lovely. I always wanted to make a cut flower bed when I had my allotment but it's something I never got round to.

  8. Congratulations on the certificate, you have done very well. Isn't it wonderful to be able to cut flowers from your very own garden. My garden is also getting ready to share beautiful blooms!

  9. Very well done on getting the certificate and cup.
    I love the look of the fruit in your dish. Yum!

    All the best Jan

  10. Nice food and flower harvest upon your return.

  11. I love to cut flowers from my garden too, Marlene. AT the moment, there's not a lot in flower as it's Winter but I do have a salvia coming in to bloom, that only flowers in Winter. Perhaps I'll cut some of that to bring inside. The berries from your garden looks delicious, as I'm sure that summer pudding will be too. Yum! Meg:)
