We are nearly half way through September, can you believe it? The weather is nice and sunny but you can really feel the autumn chill. Many afternoons are spent in this garden nook.
I have more patty pans and courgette than we can eat but the apple tree has not been kind this year and I only managed to make few pies and some mousse which got incorporated into pancakes and muffins.
Mapp and Lucia series are keeping me entertained in the reading department, Jeeves and Woosters are waiting. Which series is better do you think?
I started to really like chrysanthemums, they look good combined with dried alliums.
Popped to South Bank to check out the festival and got to see Edvard Munch at Tate Modern, I was absolutely stunned at the beauty of his paintings and how little I knew of his work. Let’s be frank, I only knew Scream which, luckily, wasn’t there. The show was perfect and I left moved and inspired. It ends in October so go and see it, it is worth it.
Speaking of arts, the child is still very much indifferent to paint, pencils and crayons, he likes to draw some doodles and then entertains himself by throwing all the pencils down from the table. Chalk is more attractive because he can draw on cupboards and doors. And he eats salt dough.
The Newsroom is over (I am disappointed that there were only 10 episodes, I was expecting 12 and didn’t realised 10th was the season’s finale!), Parade’s Ens is still there and of course The Great British Bake Off is in full swing but what’s next for good drama? Homeland will be back in October and Girls will air in the UK soon, a brilliant show btw. Did I miss something good, something old? I hope I did!
Big news, something I have been dreading having tragically failed several times at the age of 18. I have passed my driving test first time round, it happened on Tuesday morning and I am still stunned, the whole week seems so surreal. I am bit scared to start driving on my own but once I gain some experience it’s going to make such a difference to my life. Yay!
