What a scorcher, as they say! We don’t get heat quite like London heat in the far South West of the U.K where we live. We have melted the day away here! We all found respite in the coolth of the park where the children played, we all enjoyed ice creams and I enjoyed the scent of the roses and the sunlight through the Copper Beech leaves.

I was given a present this morning, just because! It is a set of slot together silicon panels to make any size, shape of cake so this afternoon I made a heart shaped Lemon Drizle cake for next door. Thank you, N, perfect present and excellent timing.xx
On my walk this afternoon, the lane was full of richly coloured English Bluebells.
Daughter No Three is with us for Bill next door’s funeral tomorrow as she once worked with WildWorks on Babel. She has left her daughter with Daddy but LiveWire 4 sent her Bunny to keep Mummy company.

A most unexpected parcel was waiting for us on our return with a couple of delightful presents from our long-lost and recently found very special friend. I love this heart pin with its message on the back of love and peace – and the same to you P.

Another first, N asked if she could learn to knit and, just by chance I had some child’s needles and some wool in my case! She is a very quick learner and despite being left handed, was knitting right handed in no time. Actually, does anyone know if handedness matters when knitting? I was the same age, eight, when my Granny came to stay with us in Cornwall and taught me to knit. It is a great pleasure to pass on the skill and to such a willing learner.
