Hello fellow blog pals.
I'm sitting inside after a huge deluge of rain has come down on Melbourne. Thank goodness the humidity has dropped, as it has been a sticky sweaty few days.
So it would seem it bit strange that I am knitting a scarf in these conditions, however when the knitting bug hits, it's hard to ignore. I'm using the wool that was given to me by the lovely Angela of Bounty Huntress.
The other day I watched for about the fourth time, The Jane Austen Book Club, which has now set me off in reading her books again. So I am starting with Pride and Prejudice, and I have to say I am a tragic when it comes to Miss Austen, I love all the films and mini series that have been made. I must buy myself the Lost in Austen series, where a modern girl travels back in time and meets Mr Darcy. Hmmm if only.
Now for something completely different, out of my bedroom window I have this huge fruit tree, as do the next five houses in my street. Now I think this fruit is a cherry plum but not sure, any ideas.
What I want to do is collect mine and make it into jam, then ask my neighbours, if they mind if I collect theirs and in return give them a pot or two of the finished product.
Before I lived in this street I used to see all this fruit just fall to the ground and get wasted. I just hope I'll have enough empty jars, maybe I should ask them to start collecting those for me as well.
