Up reasonably early again today, so we could take the dog out before the riverside got too hot and too busy. Made a BBC recipe for breakfast – Sweetcorn cakes with poached eggs.
Out with the dog pretty much straight after breakfast and went over to the rocks where we spent time yesterday. There were other people there today and “C” was really well behaved until another dog arrived nearby then she started to get unhappy so we headed back. Still a nice hour or so out.
Didn’t do very much at all this afternoon – sat in the garden, drank Earl Grey tea and finally spent a signifcant amount of time reading my book (I’m still on with Catch-22). Did some garden upcycling with “E”, using some old ice cream tubs and cut-down plastic bottles as planters for marigolds and Nigella. We’ll see if they grow. No reason why not, just a little late to be going in.
Played Jumanji for Game Time while we also made the most of some of the delicious scones “S” made this afternoon. We’re firmly on the Cornwall side fo the argument – butter, then raspberry jam, then cream.
The chicken is in the oven for today’s roast and all is prepared. Need to get on with the roast potatoes in about half an hour then the veg.
We chose the films for this week’s Film Club events – we’re watching Hunt for the Wilderpeople this evening. It’s on Amazon Prime at the moment so we want to make the most of it. Quite an unusual mix of films for this week.
Thoroughly enjoyed the weather this weekend (well, since the middle of last week really). I love the sun and have made the most of being able to be outside all day for the past 2 days. I’m starting to get back to my more natural colouring anmmd away from the pasty white of a Scottish winter. Even managed to be in shorts all weekend. This is the latest I’ve been able to break the shorts out for many years. We’ve either been in the tropics (shorts all year round) or we’ve been in places where the winter ends totally by the end of March and the temperature rises quickly from then. I’me sure I can feel the vitamin D building up in me already!
Looking like it’s due to change this week though.
Absolutely loved the film, it was outstanding. It’s on Prime until Tuesday and if you’ve not seen it i highly recommend it.
