I have not made a decision to just write one post a week; I intended to continue posting 5- 6 a week but I have been too busy, again. Not all with work though, some serious fun was had too.
On monday I went to Wimbledon with Helen and we had an amazing day. We got there really early and so made the most of our time by going to watch Leyton Hewitt on Court 17. They lost to Rojer and Tecau who actually won the final today. I like the outside courts because you are so close to the action. I like this better though 🙂 We had Centre Court tickets. We had 3 great matches to watch – Serena vs Venus Williams. Then Andy Murray vs Karlovic. Then Federer vs Bautista. When all the action was finished on Centre Court we went to sit on the hill. We saw Djokovic vs Anderson. The atmosphere on the hill is more laid back and relaxed than courtside and I was really pleased we experienced both. It was a brilliant day. My second stadium of the week was Wembley. Harvey’s Christmas present was to go and see his idol, Ed Sheeran. He has waited a very long time but finally the day had come. Harvey was not disappointed with anything and declared it to be his best Christmas present ever. The crowd were very good natured, relaxed and intent on having fun.
Ed himself was fabulous.
We would all go and see Ed Sheeran again – he was fantastic.
So, on to the topic of the blog. I have had a very mixed bag this week, mainly not very good but there were some excellent days. I didn’t grow these cherries but they are local. Very local actually as they were grown in my village. I did grow the lettuce, mange tout, spinach and radishes. That lettuce is crisp and full of flavour and very well worth growing. Cherries and a smoothie for breakfast. Wholewheat pasta, sweetcorn, black beans, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, radishes, mange tout and cucumber for lunch. Rice and loads of veggies for supper.
