Good Bye May, Hello June

The 1st of June was red hot, could Summer be here already???  We spent the whole of the day in the garden, doing some serious pottering and we made our very first harvest of the year.  Hopefully there will be plenty more to come.

May also saw some really nice warm, sunshiney days and the month started out with our holiday in North Wales, staying in Buzzards View, a lovely remote holiday cottage just outside of Eglwysbach.

Whilst we were in North Wales I had an exciting Blog development.  I received the following comment from a company called My Taste. 
Hi, We have noticed that you have great recipe posts on your blog and would like to give you the opportunity to share them with the world!

We are a recipe search engine where you can find thousands of recipes from blogs and sites, we would be delighted if you chose to join us.

Please have a look at our website ( and if you would like to your blog and recipes listed, all you have to do is to register your blog from here :)

We hope to see you soon!
Well, I was soooooo excited!!  I've since registered my Blog with their site and my recipes are now included.  You can link directly through to from the green button on the left hand side of my Blog.

As well as some nice sunshiney days, we've had loads of rain (Yuk!!), two Bank Holidays (Hurrah!!), my sister Sarah's birthday, loads of activity in the garden and on the veg plot and a night out with some old work friends.  Busy, busy, busy - this pottering lark is not for the faint hearted!

I've also cooked moussaka, a recipe which I hope to share another time, a roast chicken dinner, I know, get me, and an adapted version of rocky road.

We've finally made a start on our first real inside project, with some preparation work being done for the decorating of the spare bedroom, and we've started to look at paint colours, so watch this space for how that progresses - I'm guessing it will be slowly.

I've entered both Martin and I into our first photo competitions and I've had my sewing machine out for making do and mending - that went ok, once I'd remembered how it worked!!

May ended with us picking up our new car.  A Mazda CX-5.  Whist it was sad to say good bye to the old Astra, I am sure we are going to have loads of fun with our new toy and there will definitely be no more madly missing my Mazda!!

June is looking like it will be busier than May, with a train trip to Gloucester to meet an old work friend on the agenda, a day spent with Hannah, my friend's daughter, taking photos together, lots of Governor activity, including an Open Day and a Summer Fair, Martin and I are manning the Tin Can Alley, and some more Saturday nights in with good food and good friends.

I think I will be ready for our next holiday, which is early in July!!  So far, it looks like we will be having a week at home, though I am sure there will be plenty of adventures to tell you all about.

Bye for now.
