The Pink Pumpkin Patch

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I know I'm a very bad Blogger!

Due to the fact that I abandoned all attempts yesterday due to a timely phonecall :)
I feel quite happy wittering away to myself anyway- so here comes Octobers bits.

Firstly, Brian phoned me from work on a Thursday evening (after 6pm and this is important) to let me know we were going to the 'Stand up to Cancer' Ball the following night. OMG! Hair, nails, dress? Later it transpired it was on the Saturday, so that gave me a full 30 hours, very generous I'm sure you'd agree ;)
Loads of flapping about but got there in the end.



The dress needs to be taken up an inch now where I kept tripping over it and put a few little holes in the bottom Doh! We had a brilliant night and it was worth all the effort to get things organised in time.

By the way, can anyone tell me how to put the photos beside eachother instead of underneath in a row? Ta :)



From the 16th to the 19th of October, My gorgeous, crazy husband took part in a charity cycle from Belfast to Cork in aid of the Marie Keating Foundation. You can see more Here !
I only have a couple of photos as I forgot to bring my camera and the I-phone pics weren't the best.
Well done to my sweetie and to all the other guys and gals who started and finished this great endeavour. 





Back to the garden!
The garden yielded four beautiful pumpkins, which the children monitored carefully since coming back to school in September. Last week, we harvested two of them using one to make Pumpkin Soup and carve, the other is on the nature table for inspection. I have a couple of piccies buy have given the kids special adobe treatment to respect their privacy
( Two proud kiddies with their produce)

 Hmmm, what to do with a green pumpkin?


 Ok, so the carving is totally rubbish, sorry Liz ;) but the kids loved it to bits and that's the main thing!


Otherwise, Things have been mental harvesting the apples and trying to eat and preserve as many as possible. I feel a mega freezing session coming on as I'm running out of jars.


Some have pretty labels and covers, some still have to be done, I'm getting there! I hope the chutney tastes good though, you never know until you let it sit for a couple of months. Fingers crossed!

Sigh! Time to go and relax now...See you later :)

Ooooh gorgeous dress! You did great considering the time constraint!
Also, want to know whether Brian was smiling before or after the auction??!!

Thank you :) and yes, after the auction he was well oiled with wine and still smiling ;)
I tried doing that with the pics and it wouldn't do it. Might have another go tomorrow
