Shrews and Mint Sauce

When I went over to the Alpacas this morning I spotted this little fella spinning around on the path, really don't know what his problem was

I did eventually manage to get him into the long grass were he happily scuttled off before becoming breakfast for some-one.

I was having a tidy up down the bottom of the garden today, cutting back some of the herbs that are staying, looking at the mint I decided to make mint sauce, found a recipe on the Internet for a thick mint sauce.
So thought I get some done, of course after doing it I realised I don't have any jars they are all packed so managed to find an empty bottle, have you ever tried to squeeze mint sauce through the narrow neck of a bottle, Don't even go there 
Got it in there in the end it looks like it is floating but it is really very thick. we shall see in time what its like.
that about sums my day up now going to relax with a mint tea.


  1. Awww how cute, I love the choice of music x

  2. You never know when you need a jam jar!
    Very odd behaviour from the shrew, I should think he made himself a bit dizzy.

  3. Poor dizzy little shrew! I do hope you will be able to get your thick mint sauce out of the bottle to serve it.

  4. I don't know what is going on with shrews at the moment but we went on a walk this afternoon and saw 4 dead shrews on the path at different points! Seemed rather odd!

  5. I'm so impressed that you are still blogging and still making things so close to the move!

    When I was this close to moving I didn't do anything but write lists, pack boxes and eat bad take away (admittedly I was 7 months pregnant at the time).

  6. the music to the shrew video made me laugh! Maybe he had sunstroke. I have a friend who has mint sauce on everything with veg, he's an odd man...

  7. awww poor little fella, he looks very distressed. I wonder if there is some sort of shrew disease going around. I wish I could grow mint to make sauce, it used to grow like weeds, I tried to grow some again the other day and it's been eaten by slugs already
