Today was an unexpected glorious day ☀️ I was so ready for Autumn to start and then out pops the sun again and it’s a scorcher!
I spent the morning doing odd jobs around the house and one job in particular was very exciting – signing up to having a stall at the Hook Christmas Cracker this year, I am so excited if a bit overwhelmed that I just mentioned Christmas agh, sorry 😳!
Then this afternoon came around (very speedily I might add) but it was just the loveliest thing! One of my little sisters (I have 3 and a brother, wouldn’t want to forget him) arrived for a little mid week visit which is so unusual but such a treat at the same time. I made us a little basket of treats and we found a spot on the green and sat for a couple of hours munching and catching up before realising how hot and sweaty we were – we were in direct sunlight and it was hot!
The added treat to this afternoon was that my littlest sister of them all turned up too – she had just been at an interview in Winchester for when she goes back to uni and thought she may as well join us 🙌🏻
Don’t worry though I kept my Jenny Bakes head on and used the opportunity, as hard as it was, I cracked out the scones I made and we tested them, you know just to check what we thought of the recipe, bake and how they tasted with jam and cream!
Thanks so much for coming girlies can’t wait to see the other sister next week 🙌🏻.
Now I’ve said it a million times but today was one of those surreal moments, one where you feel you should be at work, getting stressed and being busy but once I got over that it made me realise something more important and that was the whole reason for leaving my job as a teacher, family. Having time for them and with them is just the best thing and I feel so blessed that at this stage in my life I can do that – thank you God.
Hope you’ve all had a good Tuesday too,
Lots of love
