Bank holiday no.3 in May

Hi all. It’s the third bank holiday weekend in May here in the UK. The last one I thought was too close to the one before, but this one I’m ready for, bring it on!

The weather is great. Super sunny and gorgeous and all the surrounding nature looks so green and healthy. We are easing into our summer clothes a bit now. It’s really nice.

I seem to have been pretty busy of late. So it’s good to have some down time especially now we can get out in the garden. Here are a few random bits of Waffle for you:

1 The poinsettia from Christmas is still going strong!

This is David’s handiwork. He’s so good with plants. One of the first things that attracted me to him was how plants seemed to thrive under his care. His bachelor house garden was really beautiful and he brought me home grown roses on many of our first dates, definitely the way to my heart!

2 I’m currently reading… The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. I’m liking this but maybe not loving it as much as others have done? Maybe the ending will convert me, I’ve not got there yet.

3 My next read will be One August Night by Victoria Hislop. I’ll be reading this for my bookclub. I wanted to try Victoria Hislop for a while as she’s got a good reputation as an author, but I get the impression The Island which comes before One August Night is the book everyone raves about. Well, we will see.

4 What’s cooking? Sadly not that much proper cooking going on at the moment due to busyness. Friday night is always a ready meal sort of night. Tonight we had sweet chilli chicken thighs and drumsticks from M & S with oven chips and petits pois.

Here’s the chicken before cooking..

I can’t show you it after cooking as we’ve already gobbled it up! Well, there are 2 leftover drumsticks I’m guessing David might eat as a post pub snack.

Happy weekend everybody! 😎Xx
