Messing about by the river. Well, the canal actually. We went to find some gravel ponds at the weekend where people fish, so that the middle boy could have a look. He's still desperate to take it up. I'm still not understanding it at all, but happy for him to have a go, he's so passionate about it. After we found the ponds we went to walk by the canal. There were loads of people fishing there too, most of them right next to "No Fishing" signs. It's a club with rules all its own I think. If you'd like to see more canal, CT went to one too and wrote very nicely about all the fun to be had on a narrowboat. She was on a different canal, but you can get there from here.
Anyone watching Bake Off tonight? I seem to have missed most of the series, but I have been baking. As usual I have failed to take any photos at all. But I made Bea's Apple Butterscotch Pudding and Beetroot and Chocolate Brownies as recommended by Sarah. They have thoughtfully photographed theirs as well.
Also not photographed is a blanket I'm knitting and a spider that has taken up residence on the other side of the living room window. It's a spider soap opera, I can tell you, he's been there for about a fortnight now, reeling in his prey, wrapping them in sticky silk and sucking out their innards.
I don't know why I'm so hopeless at taking photos during the day. By the time I think about it, it's all gone dark. I shall try my very best to have something photographed by the next time I write. Laters, CJ xx
