Been warm enough for you? Its been lovely here the past few days - have spent time outside weeding and occasionally sitting in the shade with a glass or 2 of something scrummy.
A quick hunt through the strawberry bed the other day revealed the first ripe one;
It was scrummy - still warm from the sunshine - am hoping lots of its little friends will ripen over the next few days - the dilemma, whether to tell the menfolk or not?
Sometime I think myself lucky - MrVV works from home and though he's often out & about too, several days a week its just the 2 of us for lunch. Most often its just a quick sandwich for lunch, occasionally chips on the seawall @ Aldeburgh and other times I find something nice in the shops in town. The other day was one of those days;
Sourdough bread still warm from the bakers oven with local smoked salmon pate.
Followed by local strawberries - just plain, no sugar or cream.
Washed down with my homemade elderflower cordial - this is gorgeous and definitely something that I shall be making again. Hopefully next time I'll have found some nicer bottles - had to pinch these ones from MrVV's home brewing stash.
I forgot to show you last weekend the spoils of Sunday's bootsale;
A very shabby chic little cupboard - currently holding my vintage cotton reel collection.
Another Ladybird book - thought I might learn something ;)
Just checked the weekend forecast and so far its looking good for the school fete, brass engagement and of course the meet up on Sunday. Of course if it is too warm for some (Karen ;) ) - they can always have a paddle in the North Sea - that will cool you down ;)
See you soon
