Growing Strawberries, Making Rockets and Eating Ice-Cream

05 Jun

1   Inspired by the beautiful photos of strawberries here I went out to see how mine, grown in another old chimney pot, are doing.

Our first strawberry, just needs some sun

2   Rain until teatime today so first some soft play at Snappy’s in Portreath, with my first experience ever of bouncing in a bouncy castle! (Quite disorientating!)  That was followed by rocket building this afternoon, one making an ‘ear splitting sound’ according to Jake.

3  Tabitha had her first taste of real Cornish icecream and was determined to get every last lick.

Cornish ice-cream is the best!

Apologies to those of my readers who have liked  and commented in the last few days and to whom I have not  yet replied.   I had forgotten how very time consuming having little ones around can be. It’s all I can manage at the moment to keep my blog going – so here is a big Thank You to you all and I’ll get back to you soon!

    Ooops. I went back to laugh at Jake eating ice cream and see that it’s actually Tabitha eating ice cream.

    Super photos and it looks like the little ones are keeping you busy. It must have been fun in the bouncy castle and then feasting on ice cream as a reward!!!! Strawberries soon too!

      It is a pretty name isn’t it? There’s nothing quite like the best Cornish ice cream! 🙂

      She does keep us amused! They both do! I may not be there either as T&J will still be with us. I’ll see you at the ferry though (and possibly at the rehearsal) Enjoy your week xx

    That little head in that plate is the funniest thing. That ice-cream must have been quite something. Must be far better than Italian gelato.

      Cornish ice cream does have to be tasted to be believed! You have to be sure to get the right stuff though as there’s lots of ice cream called ‘Cornish’ which isn’t really!
      Tabitha is certainly keeping us amused! 🙂
