Saturday is traditionally a busy day, a jump-out-of-bed and get on with it sort of day. But today I felt like having a slow motion day, a slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures day.
I enjoyed the early morning sunlight in my delightful garden as I pottered around in my pj’s. I enjoyed tea and toast smothered in my homemade rhubarb and ginger jam, the last spoonfuls of the last pot from this season. I made a quick batch of scrumptious hedgerow jelly. I washed and weighed some home-grown organic tomatoes, ready to make ketchup. I sorted and stored my shallots, onions and butternut squash – bounty from my field this year. Enough of the home blessing and my step-daughter and I decided to stretch our legs along the length of St Catherine’s breakwater. We kept an eye on the weather front over the Ecrehous and the French coast. We enjoyed the comings and goings across the bay, then headed home once more.
