Feeling Fruity

Not too much to blog about today, so I thought I would show you how nicely my sloe gin and blackberry brandy are coming along. Aren't the colours of these beautiful? And look how plump and gorgeous those blackberries have become, they must have really soaked up the brandy. Far too good to throw away when the drink is matured and I have to strain them off. Any suggestions as to what I can make with them, I think they are going to be pretty alcoholic!
On Wednesday my daughter decided that my hairstyle was 'boring' and 'old fashioned' which meant the scissors were sharpened and I was in for a make over! We got home from me having 4" chopped off the front and she decided that a new hair cut needed a new hair colour so she was standing over me as I prepared lamb shanks for tea putting in 3 different tones of colour we must have looked a strange sight, me cooking at the stove and her following me round with foils and hair dye.
I've updated my profile pic, did anyone notice the difference?!!!

Yes! It looks lovely. Oh for a daughter who could do hair! I would love that.

Our sloe gin is coming along nicely too. We didn't do blackberry brandy though. Sounds good!
