The weather has changed suddenly as it is raining. It isn't the hot, sultry, summer "gin and tonic" type rain. It is more the cool change, "glass of red wine" type rain. It will slow our harvest up a bit but we are at the stage where a day off will be welcome for everyone. I can hear our workmen on the two-way planning a night at the pub as I write this...

In other, very important, news I have solved the Christmas present wrapping dilemma. The ladies at our local post office have helped me find these.
|Christmas Gift Bags|
Yay. They will solve the lost sticky tape on Christmas Eve dilemma. You could even make the presents look good after a couple of glasses of Champagne. This is a challenge that I have failed to meet in previous years.
I have also decided to pass my lovely Cherry on Top blog award to Amanda over at Not a Ballerina. Amanda has a fantastic blog, largely revolving around her experiences both traveling, and working as a travel writer. She is a beautiful writer and her blog is well worth a look. I particularly love her posts about her family holiday to Europe in the 80s. The fashion alone is inspiring.
It is going to be a pretty short post tonight. Sorry all, but there is roast lamb and red wine in the kitchen with my name on it.
Edited to add:
Farmboy's class is running the school assembly on Friday. He entertained us over dinner with their "item" It is a funk/hiphop version of Humpty Dumpty. All in all we have had a lovely evening. Dinner and a show.
