Homegrown Strawberry and a HomeMade Blackberry Pie

I've been a busy little bee these past few weeks. We Ooo'd and Aaar'd at our Strawberry that grew in my little garden.

This was promptly being eaten a few seconds later. I'm very lucky to have taken a photo.

My Brother @Altias (twitter) and I (@jelibe) went blackberry picking the other day and just in time too cause the council were using there power saws to chop it all up! I was agast but we got stuck in and we managed to get 2 cups of blackberries which I've made for my pie today.

This recipe is very easy and was really tasty. I'd really recommend Ice cream, cream or custard with this. I got the recipe from this site and its called Simple Blackberry Pie. If your a beginner like me this is a great one to start with. You can't really go round, even if, like me, you don't get enough shortcrust pastry for it (note to self: buy more next time). Its very forgiving as you can see I just did a pastry top.

I couldn't wait to taste it before taking a picture so that's my portion eaten, I can't hide from the truth, I'm the only one here! ha ha!

New Mobile Phone

I've had a GREAT day today ☺ I've had my hair cut (that's always a good start). Its an inverted bob. I've also signed up for a new mobile phone contract with virgin mobile. Its a 24 month one at £20 per month. I'm getting a Samsung Wave free with it.

 Looks yummy. I've been umming an awwing all day wondering if I should go for it and this evening I've taking the plunge (its a freeing feeling). I've not had a "new" phone for a long time, I've generally had hand me down phones but not this time. I'm an independent lady and I need a new phone ☺
