|my new love|
This was the weekend of the heatwave! yay!
I quietly declared myself on holiday. No gym, no mowing! time to assemble the cushions and covers outside. Too hot to do any thing else. The heat made me quite knocked out, I love the sun, but I do love a shady spot too!
Being called by the hot pinks, I started a new cushion. You may wonder whats happened to 'retro man', well he came together quite quickly and is being blocked ready for sewing. Now I feel the need for pink and pretty.
So after a very early morning walk on the common,
a quick hello to the daisys,
and a wave at the cows,
it was time to head home and hit the garden,
really it was me, Mollie and the dog!
and the flowers, and the birds and the bees.
loving the aqua colour too!
oh and summer treats,
Lemon curd! I brought this one because this is the one my Mum used to buy. (This isn't a sponsored post!). After reading several of Gillian's lovely posts about lemon curd I realized I missed having a little taste of lemon curd and never having brought my own I decided to start now. Gillian is very talented and makes her own! It was such a lovely lemony treat with some french bread, while sitting in the garden. So thank you Gillian for reminding me to treat myself. It brings lovely memories and even my son remembered it too.
A packet of mini fabs went down well too, fab and groovy with the cushion cover don't you think........!,
Sunday was just as hot if not hotter. The day was a bit more frought, with some driving around and a battery and charger situation, which I knew nothing about but had to resolve anyway. It's all about keeping the peace here. And trying to avoid being hit by plastic bbgun pellets!
I also watched in awe with the rest of the tennis world as Andy Murray battled it out on center court at Wimbledon, in what had to be the hottest day ever. In my opinion they were both winners! Phew. In his interview, he was so blown away he couldn't remember how he won his last point! I'm not a follower of tennis but I enjoyed that last set, in what must have been a global tennis moment.
So on with the new week now,
enjoy, stay cool, find some summer treats along the way,
