It’s May time!
First weekend in May is always great as it’s a bank holiday.
Lovely meal with my Mum and Dad – scallops and roasted veggies.
First week of May ended with a concert. Great family friend turned 80 and held a concert inviting all the people who had influenced his musical life to perform.
The evening was a sellout and performers were a pianist, contralto, tenor, trumpeter, cellist, choral groups, church choir and myself as soprano soloist.
Artist friend who painted my shed with camellias is also working on a piece of stained glass for a window in my home. I used my rug as the inspiration Orr the colours of the stained glass.
This is a little taster …….
As SATs week came to an end and we headed towards the half term holiday, I received a very thORRtful card from the Y6 pupils.
Half term started sorting the garden and putting in the bedding plants.
Another school holiday also brought fORRth comments on Twitter about head teacher’s raking on RI/SM schools and comments from the Queen’s speech when opening parliament. Sometimes we fORRget to reflect and celebrate the good we do.
If you haven’t heard of the nutribullet yet, it’s an amazing gadget that can pulverise most things within an inch of its life to make ‘smoothies’ packed with nutrients.
Beetroot, kiwi, porridge oats and white flesh nectarine….
Spinach is great for the high packed green smoothies. Add coconut water, almond milk, yogurt or simply water to thin them a little.
Half term cooking with lentils, mixed beans, salmon, scallops and spiraliser too!
The end of May is also the end of half term.
A little pamper time…..
Having also returned to a fiery copper redhead state I was introduced to a new gin courtesy of Twitter. The only stockist in my area happened to be spitting distance from the salon. What luck!
What a gin! Love it.
And that’s it!
God willing tomorrow, Dad will be 90! Love him to bits.
