Who is a clever girl then! Picked in my garden today - in fact, we picked a bucket load of greengages (more correctly, George picked them because I am allergic to wasps!) Forgot to put some of my tomatoes in. No sewing done - I had to make cakes this morning because the Book Club met at my house and home made cakes seem to be the requirement! Sorry, Gina, I didn't take a photo before the big cake was cut into and it looks very sorry now, but it was a lemon & ground almond sponge with marscapone & apricot filling and was delicious. The scones were a bit hard, I find them temperamental. Any tips?
We discussed Engleby by Sebastian Faulks - we gave it 8/10 - it was a very dark book but quite compelling and I liked the fact that it was mostly set in Cambridge. We sat out in the garden under two big umbrellas, it was perfect.
Now I am going out to lie on the table in the garden and watch the shooting stars!
