We live in the country!

Firstly, the Bury Bach Choir is performing in St Edmundsbury Cathedral tomorrow night - we're singing Rossini's Messe Solenelle and it's going to be great. There are still tickets available - the details are here.

There's been a bit of delay in importing pictures - my mac is still at the mac-spital (they've ordered the airport card and I should have it back soon...)

When C was here last weekend, we made strawberry rhubarb crumble. We kind of invented a recipe - we put the rhubarb, strawbs, some sugar and lime juice, and a few tablespoons of water and covered it with some crumble mix that I bought (lazy StowmarKate). This is what the fruit looked like:

And here it is all bubbly and glorious:

Silly roomies!


Then this past weekend, we took James to the sheep-shearing day at Baylham House Farm, and had a great time. All the animals had great personality and were quite happy to be fed and talked to. Here are a few sheep:



And here's a very intrepid piglet:

A lazy goat...

And my ploughmans' lunch (homemade everything, including the cheese - yum!


We're having some furniture delivered this weekend, which includes 2 wardrobes. I'm hopeful that one of them will lead to Narnia...I'll keep you updated.

Mmmm, yummy! That was such good crumble. Apparently crumble mix doesn't exist in America... or at least my local grocery store. My sister made a crumble the other night (inspired by us, ahem) and it was not nearly so good, if I do say so myself... expect the rhubarb, which was not at all furry-making :)
