I had a lovely morning with 2 excited Grandchildren at The Corbridge Roman site. Here they are standing on the floor of a grain store with the air vents below, and they were just the right size for crawling through them! They were fascinated by the Roman armor in the museum as also seen on Country File this weekend.
Some of mother natures Christmas baubles??? Slaley Forest just a short distance up the road has masses of wonderful tracks for walking or mountain biking. And we are still open at Christmas time.
These pretty stones are a great attraction for the children.
We have had some stunning weather here in recent days, though quite frosty this morning but the sun rise on the way to Hexham Market for some fat lambs was brilliant. Only wish I had had a camera with me.
Just been harvesting this years potato crop, some of them were whoppers, this one weighs 1lb 12 ozs, it would make rather a large portion of baked potato!!!!
Several years ago there used to be almost traffic congestion on this little lane with the amount of Black Berry pickers, now it seems there is just us and a few of the campers.
This year they are plentiful and so easy to pick here. I use them to make a Mrs Beaton recipe for seedless Blackberry and Apple Jam[ apples grown in the garden] which is wonderful on toast for breakfast it also makes great jam tarts that the grandchildren adore.
Help keep Barley’s waist line thin, please don’t feed her, even if she’s drooling!
