Motored over to Sudbury yesterday to purchase provisions for the coming invasion (of family). On the way home took the above photos of fields full of oilseed rape. I was told once that from four or five acres of oilseed rape enough deisel can be processed to fuel a medium sized family car for a year. Don't know if that's true. I do know that the stuff causes hay fever !!!
Sarah, Mikey, Lucy and Guy turned up a bit after eleven this morning. Ann bought out the simnel cake she made yesterday, which features in the above photo. Granddaughter Lucy then produced the chocolate chip biscuits that she'd made (shown in the photo below). Cake and bickies both delicious.
Below is this weeks MYSTERY OBJECT. It is a nice, uncomplicated object, the purpose of which should be fairly obvious. It is made of bronze. Purpose, where and when made, please?
Below is the same object next to a shilling or rather a ten pence piece, to give an idea of scale.
Supper is soon about to be served so I must knock of now and get meself upstairs to it..
