So, do I share the photo of the 5 comatose 17yr olds that were strewn slug-like across my living room this morning after an all-nighter playing computer games and watching horror movies?  Maybe I’ll spare you that one! 

I felt inspired to sew this evening after scoring a blanket for $5 in the charity shop.  Turning blankets into cushions to raise funds for Oxfam – this was my first attempt. Quite pleased with it.

Went out to start the Great Kiwi Bee Count today. 2 minutes watching a plant of your choice and count the number of honey bees and bumble bees that turn up. I chose the apple tree which is in blossom.  No bees, just ants. And I am going to cheat again today and post two photos.  One of the blossom complete with ant and one of this beautiful wee apple which is still clinging on after the winter. Wonder if it tastes as good as it looks?!
