The red currants are starting to ripen this week, and I pick some every evening for Eddie's dinner. He loves them. Unfortunately, so do the feathery
Linden or lime blossom is one of my top favourite scents. I was waiting for the Polish deli to open on Monday morning, and looking up at the blossom. It takes me back to my school years. We had several linden trees in the backyard of the school, and I used to climb on them.
On Tuesday morning my husband and I had a quick coffee at the UE Roasters cafe, before he caught a bus to Oxford. He was travelling to Italy later that day and told me he would be away for 3 nights. Guess what? He's still there, and not back until Monday. Insert a long stream of expletives here, and feel free to add your own.
These silly birds made a nest on one of the chimneys on the roof. Lucky for them, we don't use the fireplace, and never had, but they cannot know that. I'd say, this is an irresponsible parenting.
On Thursday our Sash was staying overnight at his residential place, so Eddie and I didn't have to hurry home after school. We popped into The Shake Shop. Eddie loved his strawberry milkshake and the vintage jukebox, where you insert a coin and choose a song.
We picked up Baccara's Sorry, I'm a lady. Eddie found it utterly hilarious. Does anyone remember that catchy tune? I was just a little bit older than Eddie now, when it first appeared. Oh goodness, I so wanted to look like the dark-haired beauty.
I just told this to Eddie and showed him the video, and he said: "Well, you don't look like her". Thank you, son, say it as it is.
Yesterday the Moon was very clear in the evening sky.
Staying home today, so here are more berries from our garden. These are tayberries, a cross between raspberries and blackberries. They are still very green at the moment.
