Pinch and punch for the first of the month!
That's got that out of the way.  I'm finding it hard to believe that it is now June.  Summer - well, nearly anyway - and yet yesterday the weather was more like February or March.  Howling wind and lashing rain and quite chilly too.  I managed to avoid putting the heating on but wrapping up well but Beth, who wasn't feeling too good, turned hers on and I don't blame her either.

It's still windy and cold - snuggle under the quilt, dressing gown and slippers cold.  It looks cloudy but it's hard to tell so early.  BBC weather says that it's likely to stay cool and dull all day with possible outbreaks of rain.

I still have plantlets in peat pots in trays and because the trays don't have holes, by midday the poor things were swimming in water.  I sorted that out but the pots are disintegrating rapidly now.  We were hoping to get the corn, beans and the single courgette into the allotment yesterday but there was not a chance in a million that either of us were trying that one.  We'd have drowned!

For the rest of the day I did the end of month accounts.  I am keeping a much closer watch on my finances now and it's really very helpful and reassuring and I did a lot of crochet and telly watching later in the day.

As for today, I got an email informing me that something is being delivered this morning so I do need to stay in and probably can't get to the allotment.  I'm not too happy about that but it can't be helped.
Then the lovely Sharon is coming to make my hair look decent again.
Ah, well.

Today's food:
B:  bran flakes, sultanas, fruit yogurt, apple
L:  coronation chicken and salad in a tortilla wrap, natural yogurt
D:  stir fry chicken with rice, fruit salad
