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
