"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

Snowy sunday.

A nice quiet start to the day,pottering doing a few jobs whilst Emily watched TV.She was a bit tired after a sleepover with A on Friday and a full day shopping with Alan on Saturday morning for my birthday present and then a very long walk to pick brambles in the afternoon .

Unfortunately the day took a downward turn, Emily and I were not seeing eye to eye and words were had, it all became a little tense. Thankfully as we began our journey we saw the light and made friends again.

A funky, stripy, Milly leads us on a tour of a local Animal Sanctuary.....

So amusing hearing "Hello there" and "Goodbye" from this very talkative bird.

Most of the animals are rescued and the released into the wild again,we have been a couple of times and a few of them seem to live here. This little fella really likes to put on a show for the camera :-)

Back home again and we began a family cooking session to make use of the brambles and a bag of apples our neighbour had kindly given us from their garden.We decided to do a crumble and to have a go at shortcrust pastry,I would normally buy pastry but Emily said we should give it a go and not worry if it didn't turn out:-)

Chatting animatedly whilst waiting to weigh out more ingredients.Milly says that "cooking isn't my thing" but likes to be involved and chose the bits she wanted to do :-)

Making it snow after sieving the flour.

A novel way to clean down the counter.

Verdict was that the pastry was awful and the apple crumble that looked awful was actually lovely!
