When we woke up this morning it wasn’t raining. We stayed in bed for a bit , watched Andrew Marr, a cartoon or two, and it still wasn’t raining. In fact, by midday, there was blue sky and sunshine.
There was only one thing we could do – go out!
We decided on a local walk up through the fields and around Craggy Wood.
We had armed ourselves with plastic bags because we knew we’d be passing a backthorn bush. We thought we were probably too late, but we found the bush still full of big fat juicy sloes.
Not wanting to be greedy, but I just had to get the ones higher up.
The sloes are now in the freezer, waiting until I get a spare hour or two when I can add the all important ingredients of gin and sugar.
