Country Girl Card

I had a lovely day with my Dad and Little Miss this week.  We raided his strawberry patch.  I adore very fresh strawberries.  Some of my finest childhood memories are of being sent to pick some for pudding and scoffing the lot before I got back.

As it happens we also took a little walk to visit a neighbour's ginormous boar.  Little Miss found him fascinating.  Nothing like the cute pig in this picture!
