Murdoch Day, Halo and Mum’s Lemon Curd (and Goal No 3)

16 Jun

1   It has been Murdoch Day in Redruth, celebrating the inventions of this Redruth man.It was lovely to see our small town so busy and vibrant.

2   Walking home I saw the halo around this plantain – so beautiful!

3   I spent the afternoon making more of Mum’s lemon Curd. I’ll put the recipe up soon.

Lemon Curd in little jars

and I just have to add another beautiful thng I was too late for yesterday…..

….Danny Welbeck’s goal! I watch the football with Mr S, often reading or knitting at the same time.  I do enjoy a good game and just loved the amazingly deft footwork and the beautiful back heel that resulted in England’s 3rd goal last night!

    Oh lemon curd, lemon curd, love, love 🙂 I absolutely LOVE lemons.

    Your page is always a bright spot in my day. And to imagine you knitting and watching that deft footwork – a very relaxing image. Have a beaut day, My Beautiful Things. What a great site this is!

      What a lovely thing to say! You’ve made my day!

      Especially because there were not-beautiful things in the garden today! My courgette/zuchini plant has died from being blown about by the gales and the slugs have eaten the tops out of some of the beans -but I only blog about the beautiful things!

      I love lemons too as you might guess if you look through my recipe pages!

      Love to you, hope you have a good day 🙂

      I’m very glad you like my good things; yesterday was a very interesting day learning more about William Murdoch. There was also an exhibition about all the tin miners who emigrated all over the world and that was fascinating. I knew some of the history but there’s always so much more to learn! 🙂

      I’ll put the recipe up soon. It’s very easy but the sun is shining and I’ve just popped in to answer the phone -lots of calls -it being Father’s Day! Must get back out to my weeding! 🙂
