pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

Thanks for the email, good to hear that all is going well.  Good luck for Monday - your first real day of work in Shanghai.

We had guests today, Steve and Shirley came to visit, which was lovely as we haven't seen them for ages.  They brought lots of photographs of their trip to The Gambia, which is where Joanne is living now.  I was especially interested in seeing them as it is not so  long ago that you and Gavin drove that BMW over there in the Banjul Rally!

We had as simple lunch of pasta and salad and then finished up with ice-cream and berries.
For tea I made some scones... plain scones, simple and delicious.
Harry called in and asked Grandpa and Toby to take him into the field for a walk, as you would expect they were only too happy to oblige!
and young Harry couldn't wait to throw himself into the straw, just for fun.
then he came back and ate all of my carefully nurtured cherry tomatoes from the greenhouse.

I must get on and go for a run to burn off some of those extra calories and try to work off the effects of drinking a couple of glasses of wine during the day!

We will be thinking of you.  Have fun.

Lots of love,
