So what has this summer been all about?
Trying out new things like Guinness cake, courtesy of Nigella, which turned out to be very tasty despite the lack of quite enough cocoa powder. It was christened the Unchocolate Cake.
Making the most of our weekends in the countryside and having every possible meal outside.
Finally finishing off another of H's 'Afternoon Tea' shawls for S's Birthday.
Spotting mushrooms in Sweden.
All the fiddly cleaning was worth it!
Admiring the mini apples.
Saying hi to the local sheep.
So finally it's time to wrap up warm and start longing for sausage casseroles... It also means, of course that it's time to start the Christmas knitting. Lacy hand warmers seem to the order of the day. I wonder how many I can churn out before December?
