A few weekends ago, Henry, Baloo and I took a trip to Wiltshire to help some friends with the annual cider-making. A weekend of idyllic out-doorsy pursuits entailed, so I thought I'd share some sepia-toned snaps with you.
As a newbie to the cider scene, I thought I'd take a step back from the mulching and other technical aspects of the job, and instead offered my finely honed tree-climbing abilities to the apple collecting team. Baloo spent the weekend hustling the little'uns like a pro, and feasting on their Pombears, mince pies, and other treats.
It's such a treat sometimes to spend a few days doing something completely different from everyday life - especially with the knowledge that when we return, it will be to sample the fruits of our labout! All in all, it was a weekend well-spent with great company, food, drink, and clean country air to blow out the cobwebs. Although I wouldn't complain if I didn't see another apple for a while*.
*Although I will happily make an exception if someone would like to make me some toffee apples?
