That's eleven jars of raspberry jam made and still two containers full iof raspberries n the freezer so we can have some with a special pud at C*mas

At least if Woody pops in this afternoon there's some jam to put  on a scone

 

Oh Dove it is lovely being able to do quotes ....

Thought you were still supposed to be taking it a bit easy with that wrist?

I made 10 jars of quince jelly yesterday & I'm going to make raspberry gin with some of my pickings. Would also like to try some blackberry & apple gin if I can find enough blackberries down our lane (they've just about finished but I was waiting for our apples & didn't have any room left in the freezer for the berries when they were at their best a few weeks ago).

Are frozen strawberries ok for making jam? We had a glut just as we were about to go on hols & could do to use a bag or two but thought they might just go to mush when I start cooking them.

Such domestic goddesses aren't we??

Once you've got the Quote where you want it, make sure you move your cursor so that it's at the left hand margin of the box where you type - you'll see that the Quote is indented a bit

If you want to edit the quote e.g. delete a bit of it , I find it best to do that after you've typed whatever you're going to say. 

 

Still not perfect - maybe this will be...

..............  It looks as tho I might now be able to quote the text I want to using the recommended 'formula' - but it was also putting my own comments about the quote in the quote box.
Any ideas why what I'm doing wrong please?

Such heart-tugging stories - brings back so many memories - I feel for all of you struggling with the problem of Aged P's. The only thing I can repeat is that you all genuinely sound as though you are trying to do the very best for your parents in a situation where there are rarely any winners and where there is no solution other than compromise. 

FB - I had to make the same difficult decision a few years ago when my father was very ill. My husband was desperately tired & in need of a holiday & I was completely torn as to whether we should go (for husband's health) or stay so I could be on hand for my father.

Fortunately my father was still fully compos mentis at that stage & I was able to talk to him about it. He was quite adamant that I should go - and, fortunately, he was still there when I returned. Can you talk to your father about it - or, if not, your mother? Would it help to have their blessing to go?

Hmm - getting better but still not right. 

I'll stop talking to myself now in case you all think I'm barking mad!! But I might come back & have another play later on.
