Cherries and Ladybirds. . .

This week has been busy busy busy, work has been frantic with Father's Day pressies in the making, now made and done...pheww!  Wednesday my day off (no school on Wednesday in France for primary school children) Mum and I picked nearly 9kilos of black cherries. They were far to yummy to  leave for the birds.

I then stoned said cherries, froze some, made cherry jam, all 17 pots and made my very first yummy, to die for Clafoutis... hehe, Mr Hollywood, thinks I'm a goddess.  It's,so true, a way to a man's heart is definitely through his stomach. :D

The pink cherries will be ready in a week or two.  Lunch in the garden and cherry picking, god my life is sooooo tough.
Three rather gorgeous ladybirds popped into say hello. I think they are after my cherry jam and clafoutis. Those innocent little faces don't fool me... :)
Every night this week I have flopped into bed and slept really badly...obviously not doing enough.

Big thank you to the lovely ladies that left comments re my last post.  It helped  and I feel lots better. 

That's my Fun and Nonsense..am now off for breakfast,
then a fun filled day of being Goffer for Mr Hollywood.  There is no end to my Super Woman talents... :) xx

It's Paper Saturdays today...tea with Lottie :)

Your ladybugs are very sweet looking, as our the cherries in the photographic montage. I am sorry to hear about your dog. As the owner of 3 dogs and a cat, I know how much they are part of the family. Yes, they are a lot of trouble, but they love you unconditionally. Blessings!

Shall I go wait by the mail box for a slice of what ever Clafoutis is?? Or did you eat it all??? Maybe the deely bopper clad Ladybirds can fly me over just a crumb to taste??? Looks like life is tough over there.... you're fingers must be permanently stained from all those cherries! :))))
