sloe sunday!

A relaxed Sunday spent in the great outdoors.



We came home with plenty wood for the fire & sloes for some gin!
Just need to find a yummy sloe gin recipe :0)

  1. Beautiful pics Han!

    I love sloe Gin, I think the general rule is equal parts sloes, sugar and Gin! Remember to prick the sloes and turn the bottles every other day for a week or two. Mine is looking a lovely colour already. We will crack it on Christmas day and regret it long into Boxing day! tee hee,
