Autumn - Sajona Style

IMG_5327, originally uploaded by Sajona.

I've been browsing loads of blogs recently - and every single one has images of brisk autumnal walks with close ups of browning crunchy leaves..you know the kind of thing. You won't get that from me (despite being surrounded by trees and countryside where we live!) I like to cook and bake when the weather starts turning - hence large stacks of chutneys and jams building up in the cupboard. Today's production line used Green Tomatoes from one side of the county (my mum's greenhouse) and the cooking apples off our tree (oh and the chillies from our plant) , can't get more local than that really! Now have to wait 2 months for it to be edible....

2 Birthdays on one day

Saturday was the annual celebration for 2 of my children - the second oldest and the youngest, they were 13 and 4!
They were both due on 23rd October and arrived in the early hours of the 24th both times! I think my youngest has always considered 2.25am as her special awake time as she is a hopeless sleeper.
Anyway - pizza, gaming and a lot of noise for the boy on Saturday (still cleaning up popcorn from under the sofa) and a princess party for DD this coming sunday :)
