Wonderful weather for weaving...?

A whirlwind few days.....The weather has been stunning here, we actually spent some time gardening over the weekend! It's taken three years so far, but we have eaten the very first crop off our asparagus plants.

Okay, so we only had two each! In the background you can see that the crop of Jerusalem artichokes was a little bit more successful - we ate those too, roasted with sweet potatoes.

Work continues to mount up because of my shoulder, I'm still being very careful. The double sided seat is virtually finished, it's a most unusual thing to find. This one comes from a commode chair so even when the seat is up, you are still looking at finished canework rather than the underside. Time consuming work in the extreme, completed beautifully by my long suffering other half!

We're feeling a bit worn out today. Yesterday we had a panic phone call from our eldest son, he was driving home when he had sudden severe pains in his abdomen that were so bad he had to pull into a car park and lie curled up on the back seat! I called an ambulance and to cut a long story short, we finally left the hospital A&E department at 9.30pm last night. He's okay'ish now, but still in some pain. It seems it was an attack of acute gastritis - so frightening, it makes you realise just how fickle life can be.

Glad your son is being looked after. Get well soon to him!

Thank you for your good wishes! He has been sleeping off and on all day today - the best way to heal I think.
