Well the fruits of the summer’s toil have been coming to ….well, fruition …or ‘salad-ition'. This week I had a lovely dinner mostly from the garden – home grown everything, apart from the cheese and salad cream! Lol.
I must say the potatoes were utterly lovely. I've just gone out and plucked another two – larger ones – from the tubs for dinner today. They're in the oven roasting as I type. Soil to plate within two hours! Yum!!
I've been making homemade jam again this year too, although the first batch of blackberry came out more like puree – not enough pectin! At least the girls in the office at work have liked it on their yogurt (Easiyo of course!) I did resort to going over to the Wotton Fete at the weekend – lovely weather for them thank goodness. My fave bit is the little display of classic cars.
Well the pups took me for a walk around that field I can tell you! They loved meeting so many new people and most of them loved them. Apart from jumping up at a poor lady in lovely white trousers. Well, they were white before Daisy and Gracie got to them.
When we came back, Daisy reprieved herself by being majorly cute and curling up in the baby bath we bought to wash them in. She fits it end to end and fell fast asleep. Sooooo cute!!
Actually I’ll have to compare photos in that bath as they grow – see how long they fit inside it before it gets too small. What’s the cutest or strangest place your dogs have slept in? Is your pic on facebook?
She went back to uni on Wed 1st, returns for her party, then off she goes again to her third year and final year at uni finishing her commercial music degree. This year she’s in Bath. Lovely place – déjà vu for me though, cos that’s where Bradley went.
Their new house has just been refurbished so it’s all pristine at the moment. Six students later though, I wonder how it will look! She’s all excited about going back, bless her. I'll you some party news next week. We’re planning to hire one of those Gladiator inflatable things where you knock each other off a podium. Should be fun. Pray for good weather for me on Sunday 5th!
I’m off for much of the next week so it’ll be great to have a rest and get on with my writing. The deadline’s looming for my next writing course. I've written over 20,000 words now and am quite pleased so far.
I'm still trying to decide the ending of this first story though – should it be a sudden mercy dash to a hospital (in true Mills and Boon fashion) which brings the two lovers back together again? Or should it be a major declaration of love in a sports stadium in front of thousands of people? Hmmm… I'll have to decide soon!
Have a great week!
P.S. In the spirit of the recent funnies, here’s another clip – this time from the tea time Centigrade hour with the lovely fashion expert Glenn Campbell having a silly moment with our Claire! I always enjoy being on with Glenn especially when he gets a bit cheeky!
