New coos...............

Belted Galloways are probably my favourite cows, and this lovely mum and her new  calf appeared in the wee field beside my garden for the first time this morning

Small treasures for a new home

Took some stuff for recycling yesterday and had a look around the sales tables at the tip; came home with some new wee things for my new home when I get there.  Sunning shiny bronze  glass bowl, little cube candlesticks in glorious rich colours, made in India, and a pair of  glass containers for floating candles, but I'll use them as vases probably. About 20p per item, so was very pleased.  I also picked up a glass chess/draughts board and se, but I need to get it out and looked at and see if it's complete, not sure what I'll end up doing with that yet!

Popeye pasties

I made these for supper tonight ;  mashed potato was mixed with spinach and French Chaource soft cheese, sprinkling of dried thyme.  Buttery short pastry trimmed into squares, filling placed on and folded over to make triangles.  Into a hot oven for 10 - 15 minutes. Were lovely, served with braised spiced red cabbage.
