blazing hornets

It's a while since I've been able to regale you with tales of village life.

Yesterday saw us enjoying a neighbourhood barbeque to celebrate the arrival of two new infants over the past few weeks. Any excuse really, but I'm sure Cinnamon and Hepsebar enjoyed it as much as the rest of us. The little oiks didn't put away many burgers though, which was perhaps a tad ungrateful.

Our contribution was homemade banoffee pie and summer fruit terrine... firm favourites in these parts. However, yesterday they were most popular with the wasps. What's going on with wasps this year? There's millions of them and they're dead slow and aggressive.

Well at least we haven't got the manic cicada plague.

Today, I will be mostly tidying up the house to get it fit to sell. Doh!
