a little r and r

It was hot in the sun this weekend, so we took advantage of it and spent some time down on Mudchute Farm where we found lots of resting and recreation, with some other r's - red peppers, some very healthy looking rocket and a mighty Oxford Downland ram lapping up the admiration of the passers-by.  (The swan I saw on the riverbank on Friday snoozing among the old bricks and rocks.)  I sat in the sun finishing off a scarf that reminds me of an Everton Mint, made from a couple of balls found in the £1 sack at PYF, and thinking about a comment a friend made about my preference for being busy.  I think it might be true, if you can count looking at the sea, re-arranging fabrics, testing one against the other, dreaming of which skirt to make.  More of which to follow...

I like to be busy as well. I can never understand people who say they are bored or alternatively can't find time for a hobby. That pig looks gloriously happy!

That pig stayed pretty much in that position all morning. He's a huge fellow, a boar, and digs so deep in his enclosure that he exposes the water pipes!
