MAKING: salads still. Today’s lunch was delicious! You know when you really enjoy a meal?
Rocket, watercress, cucumber, vine tomatoes, sunblush tomatoes, artichokes and peppered smoked mackerel
COOKING: a new courgette recipe tonight from my latest KDD – 99p!
READING: Silent Voices by Ann Cleeves – fourth in the Vera series
WAITING: for my free tickets and food vouchers to a craft fair this weekend. I finally won something. Whoop whoop!
LOOKING: at the large miniature rose bush, I need to go and deadhead it again
LISTENING: to Craig Charles on BBC 6M
WISHING: for a garden dibber
ENJOYING: researching my family tree
EATING: fresh berries, greengages and nectarines
APPRECIATING: that I can see censuses from well over 100 years ago. Family Tree research has been consuming my thoughts and a fair bit of my time lately as I’ve been given a year’s sub
LIKING: all the colour in the garden still
LOVING: that the things I took on a long weekend away to the seaside recently are pretty much the same as I would’ve taken as a child! Something to make, read, colour/dot-to-dot, in case of rainy days and for quiet moments
BUYING: well, failing to buy some grey mats for the bathroom, currently out of stock. Wins were a Craghoppers top and a linen skirt from the M&S sale last week
MANAGING: to put off transferring my photos from the cloud to my laptop. I must because my phone told me I have 3,000+ on here at the moment
WATCHING: Rev on BBC iplayer. Why have I not watched this before?! It’s funny, touching, sad and thought-provoking. Absolute quality
HOPING: for RAIN. We’re going to have a hosepipe ban soon otherwise. It’s been so dry for so, so long
WEARING: shorts & a tee
NOTICING: The birds are really quiet today and not around
FOLLOWING: I thought of a good line for this one in the shower this morning. Can’t remember it….
GETTING: stiff from sitting a bit too much. I’ll move soon and dead-head those roses
BAKING: I made wholemeal pitta bread last week. Pleased with them. Will definitely be making pitta again, such a treat to eat one fresh from the oven for lunch
COVETING: knowledge – what can I grow radishes in? I bet there are some good ideas online, but it’s nice to ask people, not Google all the time. At work I once grew potatoes in two tires which were stacked up, then you add another when the soil needs topping up. I need some ideas for radishes please
FEELING: relaxed and happy
HEARING: Craig talking about embarrassing listener experiences. Lots of wind in funeral services and inappropriate laughing
Tell us a few things? Maybe 4?
* Don’t panic, I promise I won’t
I have a dibber you can have if you like? It was in amongst my mother’s crafty bits, along with some *very* large wooden knitting needles. It was an embarrassingly long time before I spotted that the dibber wasn’t actually a super-chunky needle too!
Thank you! I’d love it please. It will definitely be used. I’ll message you Alice.
Goodness your food looks very healthy and tasty. Interesting the things we take on holiday with is. In my case five books, knitting and sewing, maps , love a map. Didn’t touch the knitting or sewing and I never do, but I have to pack it….
I don’t really do woolly crafts either in the summer. It’s too hot and sticky, especially this year. But I usually do a little sewing project.
No need to pack any books with a Kindle and Kindle app, mine holds between 2,000 and 8,000 books depending on their size!
All your meals look delicious. I watched Rev recently on the Drama channel. I too thoroughly enjoyed it.
I’m still sad it’s ended. I keep thinking about the characters, hoping he writes more!
