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.

First job of the day - visit the Aged Aunt, do her gardening, shopping, sort out her paperwork and pay her bills.  She has finally realised why you visited her last week, Jonny.  She understands that you have gone to China and has taken to looking it up in her new atlas
I reckon she could probably do a round of Mastermind questions on the geography of China, particularly Shanghai!  She sends you her love.

Toby was delighted to see us when we finally arrived home - Pip just wanted to know whether we had brought her anything - bone, doggie chocs, ...anything at all..  The two cats were much more relaxed and draped themselves around the place
Toby came back inside, spotted Bennie in her box and just couldn't resist having a cat kiss

We have spinach in abundance so I made a triple batch of your favourite spinach soup
we had some for supper and the rest has gone into containers for the freezer.  It was particularly delicious because we had a heel of parmesan left, so I dropped that into the soup as it was cooking.  

Harry came over to play earlier and had his very first icecream sandwich
followed by bread and butter, and an apple, and still he was hungry.  Apparently his mother and father don't feed him and he wants to move in with us.  He is very good at spinning tales these days!!

It is a real shame that we missed your Skype session this morning, but at least now you know where we were.
