Thursday

Hot yesterday, wasn't it?  About thirty three degrees here, I believe.  That's about ten degrees hotter than my comfort zone and it made watering the allotment rather an unpleasant experience.
This morning it is cooler but the rain predicted yesterday seems to have vanished off the BBC weather page.  A shame - a day of penetrating drizzle, interspersed with the occasional heavy shower would have done wonders for the allotment.

However, to compensate for the baking hot weather yesterday, the cooking demo was great: the food was delicious and there was loads leftovers for another day.  Actually, to tell the truth, I did have more of the berry foam come the evening which was a sort of super whisked semi-frozen mousse-y thing, the leftovers of which went straight into the freezer after the meal.  So, instead of running my freezer down, it now has two portions of pea and mint soup, two portions of tomato pasta with veg and feta (Beth took loads home too) as well as the foam which Beth and I have re-named 'Karen's Pink Fluff' - a reference that Chalet School fans might recognise.

Today I have a tuition session at ten and then I will go and water the allotment again.  After that it is 'home, James' for a spot of bedroom tidying and clothes sorting out.

How exciting!

Today's food is:
B:  scrambled egg on a pikelet (I have a left over yolk from yesterday which I can use up), apple
L:  red pepper hummus and salad wrap, apple
D:  savoury mince with runner beans, Karen's pink fluff with strawberries

Hi Joy. I've just rediscovered my entire Chalet School books set which have been in storage for nearly 2 years and anticipating a lovely winter re-reading them all (in between study of course!)

Hi, Anne,
How lovely! Are they the hardbacks?

Only 3 of them are hardbacks. The rest are paperback but although worth nothing, I bought some with my packet money when I was little and some were left to me by an old aunt so they are in precarious condition but much loved! I also have all the Pat Smythe '3 Jays' pony books, all the 'Jill' pony books and quite a few Malcolm Saville's. Would love to complete my collection of the latter but they are usually very expensive or impossible to track down. Still it's always an excuse to go into a second hand bookshop (much to my long suffering husbands despair!)

I looked for the Jill books recently and they are SO expensive! I loved them.
