Happy Birthday wishes this week go to my little brother, David, who celebrates this weekend with a BBQ (subject to weather. of course! which, at the moment, is back to the normal damp and wet with sunny spells - SO much for the heatwave and glorious summer).
My sewing-pal-mad-maer asks whats our favourite Smoothie? And it was all sounding rather nice and fruity until I read it again and spotted the SPINACH! spinach? now I like spinach (steamed as a veg or raw in a salad) but not sure I'd like it in a smoothie; I have to confess, though, I've never ACTUALLY had a smoothie (and I'm not sure I know what the difference is between a smoothie and a juice "drink" but Mary seems to enjoy them rather a lot!) (Actually I think I prefer her tip for dipping strawberries in dark chocolate, but maybe thats why my middle resembles blancmange!!). Anyway, we're both in sewing and healthy eating and Mary's blog is worth a visit for either.
EPIC match yesterday! Wimbledon mens final! I was worn out and stressed by the end, but I managed to get a few rounds in on my newest sock and got sock.2 Kai-mei underway now I'm wondering whether to develop an interest in cricket ... (personal sew-pals will be wondering if this is wise, given how quiet the MMG has been thus far and his penchance for tuning in my emb. software to find the cricket ..)
Winding down to the end of the school year for no.2.son - 2.5weeks left and then in September he will begin his GCSE year 10 and it all starts again with exams and revision! Next month no.1.son will get his results and we're hopeful he's done as well as has been predicted - good luck son!
