Son texted later to check we had got home safely and he had spent the evening making a big saucepan full of leek and potato soup using the 3 leeks and giant onion I had given them. I am so glad I encouraged all 3 boys to cook - they all pull their weight in cooking for their growing families.
In exchange my daughter in law had saved a stash of fabric from bin bags being jettisoned by a friend.
I washed them all and got them on the line just as the neighbour lit a bonfire. Rather cross as it took longer to dry them indoors and get them folded and ready to go in the sewing cupboard.
So excited by the sewing projects I can achieve over the winter!
