My Creative Space

We have been enjoying the sunshine over the last few days.  We have been walking about to check on lambs and spending time in the garden.  It has been lovely to relax after the big 1.5 weeks of hard work clearing and stacking junk ready for the scrap man.

I took time out to make lemonade using the lemons from our tree.
There are still a lot left and I have frozen a lot of juice into cubes for keeping but think lemon shortbread and lemon pudding might be on the menu soon...


1 cup water
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup lemon juice
soda water

Melt sugar in water and allow to cool.
Mix in Lemon Juice.
Use like cordial and mix with soda water.

  1. Oooh, lemonade sounds good! Makes me think of summer :D
    And look at how grown up your bubs are! Gorgeous photos.

  2. I think I shall make a batch of your lemonade. I just have to pinch some lemons from my brother's tree.

  3. Yum, home made lemonade. My Miss 4 has been asking to make some for weeks, maybe we will now I don't have to look for a recipe :)

  4. I'm going to book mark your lemonade for when the days become warmer. It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to cold here to even consider drinking cold drinks just for fun.

  5. Yummo - that reminds me I should get some lemons and juice them for lemomade this summer - we loved ours last year.
    Have you tried lemon butter, we did some of that and it was yummy too.
