Monday Miscellany

Continuing the ‘this day in history’ theme I started last week, today 357 years ago, Charles II was crowned at Westminster Abbey, which is the perfect place to post this from Horrible Histories…

After last week’s sunburn I have found the sunscreen of my dreams…Altruist, made in Germany and developed by a dermatologist. It comes in SPF 30 or 50, it’s designed for sensitive skin, not perfumed and less greasy than anything else I have used and at £7.50 for 200ml of SPF50 cream or £9.99 for 200ml spray, it a total bargain. Even better they donate 10p for every purchase to a charity supporting children with albinism in Tanzania and the rest of Africa. (I’m not being paid, I’m just really, really happy about this!)Last year, all my summer clothes and sandals pretty much gave up the ghost. A couple of weekends ago, Ma and I did some shopping and this weekend we’ve did some more. I now have 4 new pairs of linen trousers, 4 new tops and I’ve ordered 3 pairs of summer shoes and bought a pair of sandals for work. I feel very poor and now that I have summer clothes am expecting it to start raining any minute now…Yesterday was a year since my lovely friends came and put my shed up. The shed has made having an allotment much easier, although Ma would still like it to be more tidy!Plans for this week are very few, keep on top of the greenhouse in the living room. I’m waiting for the courgettes, summer squash, cucumbers and basil to put their heads up then I’ll sow more tomatoes, winter squash, kale, chard and sweetcorn although possibly not all this week. On Thursday, we’re going to see the Avengers movie but other than that I’m going to work at getting more sleep!
