Today's garden happy - my breakfast today, with bacon and mushroom. Yum. And there should be more to pick by the end of the day or tomorrow morning.
(Coming second is a proper sized yellow courgette, not the titchy ones the plant has been offering up so far.)
Good morning! Yesterday turned out to be a very pleasant day. Not too hot, plenty of sunny intervals and a lovely breeze. Even better, today sounds like being much the same, according to the Beeb. No complaints here.
Yesterday was good. As expected, very quiet and peaceful. I put in the Just Eat order good and early amd got the early slot I asked for. None of us are particularly stay-awakers so a five thirty delivery was just perfect.
So in the afternoon, I got out the tables, plates, etc, etc, etc, and organised the kitchen - not that it took all that much organising!
Sadly, one of us couldn't make it but we still had a really great time. Loads of chatter and laughing and we thoroughly enjoyed the food - I will definitely order from them again - the lamb bhuna was so good!
There were leftovers, of course. I had rather stupidly ordered some tandoori chicken (in case we didn't have enough!!) and that never got to the table - we had loads having gone from four to three. And there were the usual leftovers plus what I'd ordered for the one who couldn't come.
However - Alex likes curry/Indian food so Beth went home with stacks of bits and bobs for him and the chicken in now in three portions in the freezer, being a pretty SW-friendly kind of thing, once it is de-skinned and de-boned. I might even then boil up the bones to make a spicy sort of stock. May as well.
Beth helped me clear up afterwards so it didn't take long. That's one of the joys of a take away - no pots and pans! And there was quite a pretty sunset too.
Today is back to the normal routine thankfully. I'm going to start the day with strawberry and raspberry picking at Lathcoats and I might make some wee pots of jam for the girls with some of what I bring home.
Later on, it's Monday circuits - there may not be many of us there today. The school holidays makes things tricky and, in fact, next week, Lindsey changes to a 'blended' delivery of classes in the studio at her home and live online, to accommodate those who have children to be with.
And then I will probably go straight to the pool and do my last fifteen lengths for the GOSH fundraiser. I didn't swim at all last week so it's time to get back into the pattern again.
Usually, at that time, the pool is pretty empty but it might be a different matter during the school holiday. I will go and find out!
So that's today. It should be a good day, all in all. I hope yours is too - enjoy it and have a really happy time, whatever you do. xx
