Good morning, gentle readers. I am now home again after a week away and it was so nice to sleep in my own bed again last night. Mum and Dad's home is lovely, very comfortable, but really there's no place like home, is there?
It was a good drive home. There was a fair amount of traffic bit it was all moving, no holdups at all. There was just one heart stopping moment when a jogger ran straight into the road in front of me. Thank goodness the reflexes and the brakes worked and also that I was not exceeding the speed limit. He just ran on without even mouthing a 'sorry' to me. Ah, well, it takes all sorts.
I popped into school to see someone for a meeting and it was very pleasant to say hi to friends and hearing some of the news.
That was about it really. I'm sure you have seen the strawberry photos. They really were extremely delicious and I look forward to the next lot. The runner beans are climbing their supports well now and the tomatoes look good and healthy and one even has its first truss growing. I came home with three more plants from Dad. They are a new bush tomato, in its first year out, and Dad will be reporting back on it. I have no room in the bed so will need to get out some larger pots for them.
Here's my food for the day - it is rather nice to be in charge again.
B: toast and marmite, apple
L: salmon steak with salad
D: chicken quiche with salad, lime torte
Lots of sparkling water.
Well, I'd better get going. There's a week's clothes to wash, dry and iron and I need to pop into town first thing.
