Treat – Word of the Week

It’s been a good week. Crammed full of moments to make me smile.  Adventures had. Memories made. A soul soothed. I hadn’t realised how much we needed it. Isn’t that often the way?

We’ve been away to Wales for an extra long weekend. Time spent messing around on the beach and in the water. Ambling along coastal paths and taking in the views. There was a boat trip to see seals, too.

We had gourmet treats. A surprisingly good Chinese takeaway, which makes a move to Wales seem even more attractive. Also, a much looked forward to seafood meal. Not forgetting welsh cakes, of course.

We visited a woollen mill, which pleased my geeky crafting side. Plus the water wheel from the mill, gave a chance for a discussion on clean energy with the children.It was good to have time away. We’re back now. Most of the washing is now clean, dry and folded away. Memories made and we’re gearing up for school starting next week.

Back to reality. I can feel the shift in the garden too. We’ve had our first sweetcorn. Sweet and juicy, in a way that a shop-bought cob never could be. I picked a big bowl of blackberries, an apple from the orchard and made fruit crumble last night. The first crumble heralds the start of autumn for me. It was delicious.

The beans have really got going. I can see meals of beans ahead. The children eat the French beans straight from the plant. So fresh. I’m not sure what ratio they work with, but must be about 5 beans in the pot, one to crunch. The blackberries are more a one-to-one set up. One in the pot. One in my mouth. I don’t mind in the least. So long as they are eating them, one way or another. A nice change from salad, which has seen us through the summer.

It does feel like we are tipping gently into autumn. Bringing more treats from the garden and fun times ahead. A few days left of the holidays. Just enough time to add more adventures before they go back.

Joining in the Anne’s word of the week linky. I’m going for the word “Treat”.
