Blueberry Picking

Firstly, I'd like to thank you for all the lovely birthday comments. If you have asked a question I usually answer it in the comments section, so check back to where you asked the question. Cheers.

A friend took us blueberry picking the other day, it is the first time ebi-kun has been fruit picking and he really enjoyed himself. Although I think he ate as many as he put in the basket.

We were only there for about 45 minutes and it was HOT but we came home with 1.6Kgs of blueberries. Yum. 

When we got home we made muffins, I would show you a picture but we ate them before I could get the camera out ;o).
I also made blueberry syrup and some blueberry brandy which should be ready for Christmas. We have about a third left so I need to decide what else to make, make be a pie?
I'm not really used to cooking with blueberries, blackberries are bountiful at home but you don't see them much over here.

We have a new friend too, he is a praying mantis who lives in the garden, he seems to have made himself at home in the cucumber plant.

I had a bit of a panic last night when I realised that it is THIS Friday that my cousin come to visit, which means it is next Tuesday that we go to visit the in-laws which means the weekend after that is when my Italian friend comes to stay, for some reason I thought I had an extra week before the madness begins, better get that duster out and you know how much I like cleaning!
