May Day May Day

So it is now May, and it is the second bank holiday weekend of the year. Compared to the last one, easter, the weather looks as though it WILL BE better. At this very moment in time, the sky is, nearly blue, the air temperature is nearly warm and the grass caravan site is nearly dry.

We are expecting to be busy. Not only is the CL site full, but we also have a caravan rally as well. I have marched about this morning with the Rally Marshals pointing out the 'wet holes' and roping off the boggy bit on the CL Site which is right across pitch number 4. hopefully, fingers crossed, the latecomers on the CL site will wait until morning to be sited. I wish.

Yesterday was my day off - Hubby and l took deliveries into Leeds and Harrogate. Two new customers, Shaky Jakes in Headingley and Indulge Deli Bar in Harrogate. Although l had no time to shop till l dropped in Harrogate, l did manage a quick nip into Betty's for some Yorkshire Fat Rascals and cauliflowers dainty-cake-thingies.

On the farm, the heifers are now out enjoying the spring grass, the hedges and trees are bursting into leaf, everywhere is becoming a blaze of brilliant, vibrant green, whilst Gordon has rediscovered his spring time habit of eating dandelion flowers! The swallows have re-established and are repairing their nest in the barns whilst the bats and flitting about at dusk. As for rabbits..........yes they are everywhere and the cat, for the majority of the time is marching about clutching an unfortunate baby bunny between her teeth! So all in all, our visitors should have plenty to see whilst walking along the farm walk to the beach.

1 x dandelion-eating dog
1 x cat eating baby rabbits



I can match the cat eating rabbit we ahev several of those but I want your Dandelion eating dog please!!

Oh tralee tralaah! May puts a spring in your step doesn't it? All this fresh growth and greenery. How can anyone not love to be alive at a time like this? Why it almost makes me feel like gobbling a Mr Moo ice cream but I don't know of anywhere in Sheffield that sells this East coast delicacy!

Hi Muddy,

Have just realised you live in Yorkshire, my daughter lived there for a year. I visited there one Christmas a few years ago for the first time and it happened to be a White Christmas.!

Would have loved to have been to Betty's in Harrogate for a pot of their famous tea and pastry's.

With the gorgeous weather at the moment quite fancy having some of your delicious Mr Moo's ice cream.!
