Our kids like to play adventuring games, they pack up their backpacks and wander around and imagine. Jonah has a backpack filled with tools and string and bits of old computer board. Mana will have a teddy, glitter glue and head bands. Drinks and a snack too.
Yesterday we ventured to the blackberry bush that sits in the middle of our open paddocks and picked and picked, they were perfect.
The kids talked of making blackberry jam and blackberry juice and as the sweat poured of my body in the mid morning sun all I could think of was how to make blackberry wine.
Then it was time for the long walk home, in the heat.
