I had an exciting week with few trips out of London (of which later) and came home to a wonderful produce in the garden, cucumbers, potatoes, courgettes, rocket, chard and beetroots are abundant. Rocket is the best salad leaf ever, it just keeps producing new leaves without the need of re-sowing and I’ve been giving away lots of it. I have a couple of neighbours with allotments and I always get things from them which makes this street of mine even lovelier that it was.
Having hubby at home is great, I get freshly baked brioche for breakfast as well as lots of DIY done.
I I watched Cars with Freddie about a million times and read Moomin stories for toddlers every bedtime and then some. We also had a small big success – Freddie slept in his own bed the whole night waking up only once but not wanting to go to our bed. A massive thing in this house because ever since we brought him home from the hospital he slept with us for at least half of the night. He woke up happy and rested, and so did we.
I am so grateful to everyone who leaves comments here, I got so many wonderful book recommendations and have been reading constantly. More book posts are coming up soon of course.
Tomorrow is the last episode of Top of the Lake, very exciting after a couple of twists in the last week’s episode and I also learned that Under the Dome series two is going to happen which means it won’t resolve anytime soon, still hooked like a fat pigeon on a chip.
I stopped going to galleries because Freddie is not so keen anymore, he just wants to run where he is not supposed to so we only got to the Science Museum or Natural History or anything to do with cars, planes and trains. But there are a couple of exhibitions that look wonderful and hopefully I will get a chance to see them:
Laura Knight at National Portrait Gallery
Lowry at Tate Britain
V&A has got the best jewellery rooms so I am expecting Pearls to be a great show, coming in September
