Relaxing And Recovering

Back in the land of the living again, yesterday was a very relaxing day, I was still feeling a bit out of it and once again headed to bed for a few hours, today feeling normal again,
Didn't get much done done at all,
Picked a bowl of blueberries, they have been doing really well picking a bowlful every few days, picked a few courgettes and tomatoes, made a loaf of bread then went back to bed.
When I got up I felt a lot lot better 
 I was happy to sit in the shade spinning
 while Martin worked on getting the concrete down in what will be his workshop.
 Dinner was a very simple affair, courgettes fried in butter with garlic and spring onions there was a few in the fridge needing using
 There was also a few cooked potatoes in the fridge so they go fried up and served with venison steak and salad.
 Mushrooms are coming on great and every couple of days there is some to pick, I am ticking this one off as a success.
I have a few ideas on doing mushroom growing next year.
I will continue with the Diary posts from my next blog post right now I have a lot to catch up on.


  1. Great to hear you are feeling better.
    I would say yuck to the blueberries except for the fact that although I can't eat them raw I love a blueberry muffin and would always choose one rather than a cream cake-x-

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better,it's not great to feel poorly in this hot weather.

  3. Sorry to see you've been ill. Hope it passes quickly!

  4. That's an awful lot done on a poorly day Dawn...remember to look after yourself! After all you have enough food in store to last a siege or two it seems. :) x

  5. Soglad you are feeling better and that the harvest is continuing to be yummy.

  6. There's something about being unwell in summer that makes it seem worse than cold weather when you can snuggle up in a cosy place. Glad to hear that you are feeling better today. I do think you're right about the germs that are picked up in really busy places when you are not used to that kind of environment-I used to have a cast iron constitution after working in schools for nearly forty years but since retiring I seem to be more susceptible to germy things! We love blueberries and I was drooling at the luscious bowl in the photo. I'm hopefuuly going to Yarndale in September as we managed to book Bolton Abbey Caravan site for that week. Hope you continue to improve. Catriona

  7. I have had two blueberries from my plant this year. The birds got the rest I think, whilst we were away over the weekend.

    Hope you are firing on all cylinders again now.
