Just Now I Am.....

The last few days of June find me

Enjoying the lovely summery weather

Making more elderflower cordial before the flowers fade

Picking gooseberries (ouch! ouch! ouch!)

Making coconut ice cream

Picking a birthday gift of flowers

Making more almond muffins -recipe to come soon

Putting together a June sampler

Watching the tennis (though not today, today's a rest day, today I am watching the MotoGP)

Looking forward to watching Andy and Laura play tomorrow

Drinking chilled Spanish white wine. Lots of it.
