I spent today preparing for our school fete this Saturday....sewing yellow and orange gingham tablecloths and helping my mum make the most amazing lemon butter.
Each batch had to be tested - so we had to do the right thing and eat some on bread, by the spoon full and even tonight I discovered it's very yummy rolled in crepes with icecream!
Two of her four cats came with us to help pick the lemons and roll in the sun...the one on the right is Mexie - he was my cat until I left home...moved to Sydney, got married and had babies!
He was my birthday present during my first year at university....so he's very, very old now for a cat and still as vocal and friendly as ever. 25 jars and counting.....I better pack up the car with all the bits and bobs to decorate the cake stall tomorrow.
