Those of you that hail from outside Britain may be baffled by the British obsession with the weather. But if you look at the weather we’ve had so far this year it’s very easy to see why. Back in March we had a week of glorious sunshine. Suntan lotion was applied, ice creams were eaten and children played in the garden. However, just a week later the ground was covered in snow. Moving onto this season and our summer has been largely punctuated by rain with the occasional day of sunshine. British weather is extreme and it’s unpredictable – it’s no wonder why we talk about it all the time!
We picked strawberries and raspberries (although they also grow blackcurrants, redcurrants and gooseberries). They grow the strawberries on tables so it’s not even back breaking work. It’s a great way to pass the time with your kids. Whizz Kid loved it and I can’t wait to take my youngest when she’s old enough next year. The fact that the sun came out topped the day off quite nicely, but even in the rain it would have been fun.
Got to go – I’ve got strawberries to eat!! Yummy!!
