Anyway while I was at work hubby got on with painting the fence It is really weird to see it brown through the glass back door.

Bobs gymnastics day again so we went babysitting the gruesome twosome. Dinky was not feeling overly well so when mummy left she took herself off and sat at the dining table and refused to have anything to do with us, at least she huffs quietly!!
Minky had great fun with an empty box and Granddad. Only pictures I got of him were blurred.

Did get some good video though.
Got a new freezer last week and had run down the other one for this one being delivered. So got a load of stuff to restock with cooked food, I find it much easier to bulk cook and freeze rather than cook food every day. Much cheaper than a takeaway after eleven hours at work. I had planned to make a lasagne and freeze it as well, but then realised I had thrown out my loaf tins as they were passed their best and have not bought another one yet.

It rained on and off for a lot of the day, but we decided spur of the moment to go and pick some brambles. Where we were going was no use to take the children because it involves a walk across a farmers field and sometimes his bull is out. We got there safely with no sign of him, but then after about an hour part of the herd and Mr Bull came across to see us. Luckily this one was just a young bull and seemed to pose no threat ( though you never can safely tell) so we just walked towards them waving our arms and shouting until we had moved them back past the gate we could climb over. Then we stopped and took the photo. I got 3.5lb of brambles. plenty to do some baking with.

SIL was working a day shift so I went and watched the gruesome twosome and Bob while daughter did some bits she needed to do. Then brought Bob up the road as I intended to do some baking and asked him if he wanted to help and he said yes, so we had a fun afternoon in the kitchen.
Once of the things we made was lemon cakes for Bob, so he grated the rind off and we squeezed the juice out, and at that point I ate some of the lemon that was left, so Bob wanted a bit, his face was funny.

Lots of yummy cakes to eat from yesterday. I had seen Helen over on The Crazy Kitchen produce a cake I fancied adapting to dairy free , and so here mine is, part of yesterdays baking. Recipe here and very yummy it was to.

No wonder I have spent half the month totally confused and not knowing what day of the week it was.
