Happy Monday – I don’t know where the weekend has gone but it has been lovely.
Friday night my friend was meant to be coming over but there was a change of plans. Instead I had a lovely glass of wine (or two) and relaxed.
Saturday was promised to be the hottest and sunniest day of the year but as typical English weather we had no sunshine – NONE!! It was hot and sticky but no sun shine. I was really gutted but took my annoyance out on cleaning the house!! I did catch up with one of my sisters who has been on holiday.
Sunday I hoped would bring sunshine and not the forecasted rain. I woke up with much anticipation as the sun was shining and it looked like it would stay. I headed out for a bike ride and ended up doing 21 miles. I was so pleased with myself although it was hard in sections as where I live is hilly.
|This does not show how lovely it was.|
This took most of the afternoon but I didn’t care. I forgot how much I enjoyed baking.
The rain did come in the afternoon and it rained all afternoon and evening. I don’t know where all the rain has come from but I wish it would sod off! It has rained almost every day and I do mean every day since April (when we were told we had a drought!) As a result I decided to make a winters dinner of Sheppard’s pie with quorn mince. It was tasty and satisfying but it was a little too warm outside.
