This is the wonderful Barford Farm Ice Cream hut near Sturminster Marshall in Dorset. My daughter has to go back to work tomorrow after the long summer holidays, so we went out to a country pub for a snack lunch and then off for a walk and ending up here Barford Farm.

This is the little shed where the ice cream is sold.A dip in the river near Spetisbury for Wrecks.

The ice cream gardens which are large and have lots of hidden places to enjoy your sorbet or ice cream. The ice cream is made from the cows milk on the farm and is LUSH!!!!

One of the little corners to sit in. The local farmers are very busy at the moment getting the harvest in, seem to meet a tractor or combine harvester around every corner!

Why can't I comment!

I don't know why, but I can't seem to leave comments on some blogs now....I don't know why but please don't think I am ignoring you if I usually comment on your blog and have suddenly stopped!

This weekend has been very busy and quite exciting too! I went to a very special wedding of this delightful older couple, John and Val. I work in a Hospice and these two lovely people both lost their spouses a couple of years ago at our Hospice, we run a "Pop-In" for bereaved folk that they can come to after they have lost someone and that is where John and Val met and fell in love. Yesterday my fellow nurse Jan and I were invited to the wedding and it made everything worth while!

This is not a very clear picture but it has just won a silver in the Dorset Arts and Crafts Exhibition at Bovington....and I also won Gold for my hebridean Landscape picture. I didn't intend to enter anything and have never done so before, however my Mother was entering some of her lace and bullied me into it. I was so surprised to have got awards!

Here they are!

Friday evening spent at the Swanage Carnival, watching the Red Arrows......

Watching my two sons running the annual Wheelbarrow race, the barrow is meant to be a John Deere tractor! They came about 9th out of's hard to tell as it is a very rough race with barrows crashing into each other and carnage generally!

Relaxing at the end with Ed's girlfriend with him in the barrow and Will pushing!

A fun weekend indeed!
