A weekend of Englishness....

This weekend we enjoyed a couple of very English pursuits.
On Saturday Rachel, Jack and I headed off for an evening bike ride across the fields, our nearest footpath takes us around the wheat fields and pea fields and are rarely used as we are a little off the beaten track.

 We should have realised that as footpaths they are for walking and not really designed for bikes but we have a lot of "fun" trying to negotiate the crops....

Having been stung yet again by stinging nettles I think Jack was wishing he'd stayed at home!

We finally decided to turn back towards home when we saw the rain clouds approaching, we really need to find a much better route next time.

Today we were all out early at the local PYO farm where we collected and ate lots of delicious strawberries.
Even Tompom got in on the action but he wouldn't eat any that he picked until we got in the car!!
Our pickings!
 Enjoying the fruits of their labour.

I know there's not been much in the way of crafty posts lately but I am quietly beavering away at the hexagon patchwork cushion, Ruth and I are hoping to make a start on piecing together the actual cushion on Tuesday night. I also re-covered a notice board for Rachel (will take photos tomorrow) and am continuing with my ripple crochet blanket so shall do an update very soon..
