This week seems to have really flown by, and I don't feel as if I have had much playtime with Ruby. The weather has really turned and I can't believe how cold and wet it's been; I don't want to say it but I think autumn is on its way! I've even had to resort to putting the heating on!
After school one afternoon this week, we went over to my mums house and managed to enjoy some outdoor fun before the rain set in!
Over in the chicken run are several fruit trees; Ruby helped Nana and Grandad pick some of the fruit from the trees.
It ended up being quite fun as my mum kept telling my step dad where she could see ripe plums, and my step dad had to keep moving the ladder and trying to reach the plums right at the top of the tree.
Lots of the plums got eaten before they were brought back to the house.
We then went into the hen house and collected some eggs which we are going to use this weekend to bake a cake.
The cooking apples were not quite ready to be picked, but I'm already desperate to eat home-made apple crumble.
My mum has got loads of plums, so if anyone has a good recipe for them, I would be very grateful?
