My Garden ~ June 20th 2010
I’m sitting in my garden at my outdoor table and chairs, smelling my honeysuckle bush in blossom writing this on the laptop, I love my wireless router… 😀
June is a lovely time in my garden, I’m not the best gardener in the world, but in June my garden seems to get itself together and look fabulous with very little effort from me, my dad helped me quite a few years ago to plant some shrubs and bushes I’ve added a few more over the years and now it has kind of grown into itself. (Though I’d love a man to come round and mow the lawn on regular basis)
I’m sat here barefoot with my feet in the grass, (I’ve got a nice canopy umbrella as I wouldn’t be able to see what I’m typing if I didn’t.) I’m sat here being so hardcore drinking milk (soya)
I’ve managed to get my squeezebox boom from the kitchen outside enough so I can hear it very well (though it’s in the shade as don’t want that overheating) I can change the music as I have my duet remote control. I’m listening to a shuffle playlist of P J Harvey I’ve already covered my love for her here.
I’ll explain who Beanie is later… the duck stayed at home while we went to….. the Peace Festival in Leamington yesterday ( it would have been today but I wrote the Eddie Cochran post first), it’s a yearly event and they have lots of great music, stalls and food. I went with my friends Zee and Kory.
A beautiful Eddie Cochran
It’s 50 years since Eddie Cochran died in April 1960 in a car accident, aged 21, he died before I was even born so no chance of ever seeing him perform his music, oh to have a time machine like H. G. Wells (see his book)
I first noticed him in my teenage years through Marc Bolan of T. Rex doing a cover of Summertime Blues, I read he’d carried Eddie Cochran’s guitar … lucky, lucky man! Eddie’s music is as popular now as it was 50 years when he died, I’ve selected some of the songs that I love the most, give them a whirl 😀
I was writing a completely different post earlier and this kinda just popped into being all by itself
So this one is first, as it’s about home comforts and food.
Being the Taurean lady that I am; a comfy sofa is the ultimate in pleasure for me 😀
My other sofa – bless, is looking a little tired and it just wasn’t long enough (it’s an important consideration as I have long legs), even though I have fallen asleep on it a million times and squished too many people on it!
It was time for a change
Lovely article…just read it

I love to cook, bake etc see this, though I don’t have a lot of time and I get tired as I’m quite busy so when I do have the energy and inclination I really enjoy it.
I’ve met a lot of people who were astounded that for instance I would consider making my own white sauce for a lasagna. I like making things from scratch , I’m not averse to using cooking sauces, frozen fruit or tinned beans to save some time (no point slaving over a cooker for 3 hours for beans)
I enjoy the preparation and the process, since I’ve got a squeezebox boom in my kitchen now, I love to listen to music and cook, especially last night I cooked a carrot and tofu flan from scratch, I love making pastry, it’s so easy and you can put different flours in for different flavours.
I followed a recipe from The Vegan Cookbook (and here is the updated version of the book), my copy is rather battered from overuse, well I have had it since 1986!
