Would you like to help with harvest ....?

This is where my husband Luke spends all of his time at the moment, in the driving seat of a combine harvester. I am not sure how he manages this for the hours he does as after twenty minutes in the cabin I start feeling dizzy and my eyeballs have dried out from the air conditioning. There is something incredibly hypnotic about the header turning and the dust and chaff floating out.

A Special Moment.

Where does the time go? In a couple of weeks Ellie will be 3 and starting kindergarten. I should be tackling my huge pile of ironing, but instead I am going through old photographs and videos. I found this one of big sister Lucy with her new baby sister. This was taken in the hospital the day after Ellie was born. How precious they are. In the past I have sometimes found myself wishing time away, and now I want to hang on to every special moment.

Busy Bee.

Well I have been such a busy bee, and I just haven't had the time for blogging. Our weather has been rather lousy and my children have been tetchy. My shop may be an internet shop but, as a lot of you know, this still takes lots of time and effort. So the children will be at kindergarten from September 1st and I will have some time to myself for the first time in 6 years ..... wow!

So hopefully I will have more time for blogging and such like very soon. In the meantime I just wanted to share this photograph with you. Real fresh honeycomb. Luke arrived to one of his fields one day to find some hives just plonked in the middle of it! When the owner arrived to pick up his hives he gave Luke a whole tray of honeycomb .... yummy! I do so wish I was as eloquent as my friend Kathi, then I might begin to describe just how incredible it tastes.
