A lovely few days...

Hi Everyone what a lovely few days we have had here in the uk
normally when we return to the UK after our family visits to Sardinia its pouring with rain... 

This year we have had several days of sunshine yay!
you saw yesterday we picked all the plums from our little plum tree
I have been making Jam

Plum Conserve and plum Jam on the left and some blackberry Jam from the blackberries at our allotment on the right hand side of the phtoto

This is the plum conserve on my home-made bread.

Ok so here's the thing while I am enjoying the last of summer I am still on track with my Christmas card pile...
