Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Well what a lovely day again - two in a row things are looking up! I am trying to find out when the carnival is but I am not having much luck at the moment, I know that Ramsgate is on the 27th July followed by a week of Napoleonic Reinactment events at Government Acre sounds like fun.

How Kitch!

We are having a new patio laid in the week and are looking for something interesting to put on it. We spotted this 10ft tall plastic palm tree in Brighton a few weeks ago. The leaves light up and stay static or flash! Wow how cool would that be! I don't know what the neighbours would say, but I think the local parrot population would approve.

It's jam time!

Too many strawberries not enough time. Therefore I decided to have a go at jam making! The result as you can see opposite - looks good, tastes good but is still quite runny. Therefore I decided to call it conserve and use it as a sauce for ice cream, yum!

Messing about in boats (alright a kayak)

We bought a kayak from Whitstable Marine on Friday for my eldest to use. We managed to take it out on Saturday afternoon, where my husband rekindled his youth paddling up and down, I just watched from the sidelines and made cups of tea. Unfortunately we have not been able to get out on it since because of the dreadful weather - good old British summer time!
