Off to the woods

Off to the woods for the afternoon today. K took his bike and had a wonderful time, he's getting really good at balancing, it won't be long before he will be able to cope with peddles.
E was frantically trying to look at everything at the same time before succumbing to sleep on my back.
The leaves are starting to flutter down and while I am hoping for a glorious Indian summer (to make up for the non existant 'summer') Autumn is well and truly creeping towards us.
In the greenhouse the tom's are abundant, the cucumbers less so, one had red spider mite so has been evicted and one is currently showing signs of 2 other diseases but hanging on in there. The peas have just vanished and the squashes are being eaten when I'm not looking! Not quite a write off but not a very successful year. Maybe next year I'll bring the two large beds in the field back into use.

Boscastle & Tintagel

Went for a day out today as some friends were down on holiday. Had a wander around Boscastle then popped to Tintagel to get pasties!
My photos consist of the boys in the car as I failed to successfully juggle one baby, one toddler, one bag and a camera.

My new bag is the clever 'onbag', the last stitches went in this morning and I'm just getting used to it. If I get my hands on a snap press I will add a few in certain places but it is big enough to take nappies and clothes for 2, plus drink bottle, snacks etc. It will take a bit of getting used to but so far so good, rucksack was OK as was across the body, on one shoulder was a bit uncomfy as I didn't place the knot correctly and it was very heavy.
