remains of the day

The weather has been all over the place recently, true to British form, and I've found it really frustrating.  I've got loads of little projects that I want to get started on (or finish) in the garden but the rain hardly holds off to do anything.  The children and I will snuggle up on a Sunday afternoon with a Harry Potter film (oli's favourite but only ones with Dobby in!) tucked into throws and blankets when the sun will decide to shine at full pelt making us feel the need to be outside again; on go shoes, out goes the washing and within half an hour we are all back in again!

So you would think that the minute the sun made a good appearance that looked as if she may linger for the day I would be out there like a shot with all my good intentions but instead I did the unthinkable...

A Mini Breakfast

Poached Quail Eggs

A Mini Breakfast

We love good breakfasts and thanks to our garden hens we regularly have dippy eggs and soldiers or scrambled eggs for breakfast. I love that the children can nip down the garden, collect a few eggs and within 10 minutes they have a nutritious and tasty breakfast, I'm lucky that all three of the children love eggs as they are a great start to their day.  At the weekends we have the time to be a little more adventurous with breakfast so I was very pleased when I was given some quail eggs by my sister-in-law (whose family has inherited 50 quails to look after!)...
