Over the summer months we had debated buying some lobsters but never did. As Christopher was home for this weekend we decided to push the boat out and Wayne bought 3 lobsters. Oh we did have fun opening them and removing the meat with the help of a You Tube video!
We took Lara to a party in Welwyn Garden City this afternoon and whilst she was at the party we had a few hours to kill so we had a look round the town and the shops. The Coronation fountain in the town center has been turned pink to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Today was not a good day and one we never want to repeat. Steven had been feeling unwell since Monday and after an urgent visit to the doctor yesterday, today he ended up at the hospital. After a blood test it was diagnosed that he is very, very anaemic and deficient in B12 and folic acid. Now we know why he's been feeling unwell and with treatment over the next couple of weeks and a change in diet he will, we are sure, make a full recovery.
Today my friend Heather called me to say she had some fruit from her orchard for me. She knows I like to stock the freezer with fruit ready for making fruit crumble, etc during the colder months. When I arrived she had picked 6 bags of cooking apples, 2 bags of pears, 1 bag of plums and 1 bag of eating apples. I shared the fruit with my Mum & Dad but still have loads to freeze myself. I'm going to be busy!
