reading One Day by David Nicholls. The story of a couple who meet and then separate, it follows their lives by describing one day each year. It's great, a welcome break from chick lit. pap that I have been reading lately.
eating dahl. I can't get enough - with natural yoghurt and some flatbread. I am enjoying my daily ceremony of sitting with my heavy red bowl and eating it while Milly eats her own lunch and looks at it in disdain (she is not a fan). This photo is from the Smitten Kitchen blog. Everytime I try to photograph it it looks decidedly unappetising.
thinking about the plants in the garden that are calling my name. The apple trees need some attention, the Royal Gala almost took Michael's eye out on Sunday. I really have not been a vigilant winter worker this year and am curious (and a little worried) about what my spring and summer garden will look like as a result. This is my apple tree - if I prune now will my fruit buds suffer? Major dilemma that requires research.
listening to everything and anything via our Apple Airport Express. I love that this device has meant we play more music, controlled remotely from the iPhone and wafting (or blasting, depending on our mood) through the stereo speakers it is a lovely to have a soundtrack to our days. Milly enjoys Adele's 21 and Sam is a fan of Eagle Eye Cherry.
