Exploding champagne!!! and other weekend stuff

Well nearly ... no actually yes one did blow it's bottle top off when Alex was releasing some of the pressure out of them. At least we know the Elderflower champagne is working, and we couldn't resist a little taste as the bottle had lost some anyway ... and it was gorgeous. Perhaps a little too fizzy at the moment, which we hope will settle down while it sits another couple of weeks.

Worth the wait, based on the taste over the weekend.

On Saturday I went to the Spinning Guild meeting and had a lovely day meeting all the lovely ladies in the Guild. It was busy, I never realised there were so many people in the guild so it was great to meet them all and chat. A great opportunity to pick up a sheep's fleece too - a Poll Dorset which is a lovely soft wool and I can't wait to start spinning with it.

Alex and Imogen spent the day at Manor Farm and Alex picked up another fleece for me there - a Jacobs fleece. I really like the Jacobs fleece - I just love all the colours and it's nice and soft and has a long staple (length) to spin.

On Sunday we went to the allotment, more harvesting and more planting and a fair bit of watering since we are getting no rain at the moment and haven't had much recently. Still everything is looking good. No pictures this week though as I didn't get round to taking any.

And of course it was Fathers Day, so Alex had his presents and card from Imogen which were all really appreciated (see other post).

  1. You're going to have to give me your recipe (before the elderflowers die) - I've just had to pour my first-ever batch down the sink!
