Just finished soakingeverything. Left a soaker hose running under taters since the sand is now dry as dust. Saw first dragonflies this year on the sweet peas. Found a leaf cutter bee making a nest in a pot. Yesterday ws a good day. I went to Birmingham to see a friends daughter in the finals of the all England schools athletics.
She didn't get placed but she did a personal best two days running.
As she only trains one night a week for fun, I think thats pretty good going. She is now 8th in the country for the under 20's and all the 7 above her are older than her.
I keep telling her if she trains properly she could be in the Rio olympics, but she wants to be a dentist.
We then had a BBQ last night and drank a lot of Pimms, followed by raspberry and blackcurrant pavlova with extra strawberries. First time in two years we have been able to sit out till 9pm.
I anyone is looking for good meaty sausages, I can recomend the M & S Posh dogs or the 93% pork ones. Hardly any fat came out at all.
Plan for rest of today. Read paper, drink plenty of liquid, watch tennis.
