Monday Miscellany

Sunday morning looked like this.

It made me very, very happy! This and the predicted temps for this week not going above 30 degrees mean that I won’t be watering every day and/or feeling guilty for the days that I don’t water!

It’s been quite a productive weekend, I’ve bought a dress that I intend to wear to Christina’s wedding, footwear is (as always an issue!) can I wear converse to a wedding? Maybe I need to ask the bride and groom, although honestly I really need to get myself together as I am making cake for the wedding. Fortunately, they aren’t having a ‘wedding cake’ but big plies of cake, which is fab because we all know I suck at cake decoration! It will look more like this, which is the original cake pile that Tina asked me to bake for her, this is from 2006 and I did it again in 2009. Christina clearly remembers it and thus, I’m making cake for her wedding to the lovely Fred (Christina is also lovely and it is a measure of my love for her that I’m going to spend the August bank holiday baking said cake!). Now I have a dress to wear to the wedding too…

It’s ridiculously early but Ma and I went blackberrying this weekend and collected over two kilos of blackberries. There has been jam made and gin started.

Actually, all round it’s been a busy weekend but it hasn’t felt busy. I had a haircut, picked fruit, read a book, bought some more gin (I know it’s a sickness!), started blackberry and plum gin, spent some time on the allotment, made jam, and ate a lot of courgettes. Ma and I also spent some time talking about our various home improvement plans. It’s been good.

This week is all about crossing things off the list so I can go on holiday next week and enjoy my birthday week. I also need to prep my flat for the invasion of Joe, who is delightful but inclined to wrecking his aunty’s flat though good at feeding sheep!

    You can’t go wrong with white converse and a posh frock!
