Starting the week with a meet up and tasty lunch with the Girlie in Harrogate.
Surveying the post winter grounds here. It didn't take long, we only have a tiny, oddly shaped plot.
Spotting splashes of colour and signs that, between us, me, Boo and the slugs haven't killed off everything.
Pondering just what it is about Boo that sometimes reminds me of my dad.
Wondering if that makes me sound kind of weird.
Breaking three vases. It was an accident, honest guv.
Finding a couple of cheap replacements in the charity shops.
Enjoying easy meals using tinned beans. I'm not a fan of the humble baked bean but these giant Greek ones in tomato and herb sauce go down a treat. Just heat, serve on a thick slice of lightly toasted home baked bread, add a simple salad and Bob's your mum's brother.
Growing tomatoes from actual seeds. Go me.
Polishing off a banana, date and walnut loaf almost single-handedly. What? I was hungry.
