note to self:

Remember that you now have TWO cameras. DD1 uploaded the old one yesterday. Your pictures are on the NEW one, which you are in charge of yourself. Please upload, before accusing said daughter of hiding your pictures...

...still here...

Thanks for all your comments on my last post...I had great fun reading them all!

DS1 has started talking, and he still likes school. One of the first days, they went hiking here... and that's where this picture is taken. 600m above sealevel...

There should have been more pictures today, but DD1 uploaded all the photos, and I can't find them!!! I've been knitting quite a bit, and sewing too, but I really need to find those pictures!!!

In the meantime, we're enjoying a lovely autumn, with sunny and warm days, and chilly mornings and evenings. We did a bit of planting this weekend, raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants and grapes. Have also picked potatoes, they are nearly ready. And yummy!

Went to look for the sheep- they were not ready to come home yet! Will try again this week.

Also, I got tagged. By Heidelweiss. A looong time ago! I will not tag anyone else, but play along if you like:-)

10 things I can't do without:

1. My kids. Even if they are noisy and fighting! And hubby too, of course. Does that count for five???;-)
2. A cup of tea in the morning.
3. Knitting!
4. Sewing!
5. The sheep, at least most of the time...sometimes I just want to put them all in the pot and make a giant lambstew...
6. Books!
Hmmm, this was harder than I thought!
7. Good friends.
8. The blogosphere...
9. Autumn
10. wool!

Okay, that's all for now- off to find those photos!
Have a nice day!
