I really love the frothy blossom of cherry trees in the early summer but it is one of the only fruits I really don’t like to eat so I have a question for you: are these cherries on my tree (far left) the edible variety? If so I guess I’ll be taking them in to work for my friends to enjoy as Sophie and Chris aren’t huge fans either!
Mind you, I think Sophie prefers them to apples, which she really can’t stand. I think it is the crunch they make when you bite into them as she doesn’t even like to be close to someone eating an apple. That means the solitary apple on our apple tree will be shared by Chis and I, unless it’s a cooking variety, in which case Dorset Apple Cake could be on the cards.
Talking of cakes and cards it is Chris’s 60th birthday tomorrow so this morning I have been baking him a chocolate cake. I popped it in the oven and nipped out of the room for a few moments. When I came back in, Milo was licking his lips (and paws) … he had licked around the top of the mixing bowl, even though I had put it in the sink and filled it with water prior to going in the dishwasher. At least he hasn’t bitten through any cables this week!!!
Good news for Crystal Palace this week. Not only do we have a new manager (I’ll reserve judgement on that) we have also managed to get Wilf Zaha back from Man United on a season-long loan. I, for one, am delighted. He is an excellent player, so good that we named Daniel’s cat after him. He has a point to prove to David Moyes (and successive managers) for not selecting him so I am hoping he will do it in style against Newcastle tomorrow … it would be nice to get some points!
While talking about Crystal Palace, Daniel allowed his U11’s to drench him with water for the ice bucket challenge … worryingly they really seemed to enjoy it. Sophie and I have also done it to raise awareness and funds for Motor Neurone Disease. If you’re interested you can check out my video below;
Right, running late because of the cake baking so must dash. I have Cashmasoft as my Fashion on Friday today, and Trinny & Susannah at 7pm. Also, remember to tune in for the QVC Customer Beauty Awards show tonight at 9pm with Ali Young, particularly if you voted for your favourite. Have a great weekend
Much love, Julia x
