It’s a busy time of the year in the garden. And the fence to keep chicks and dogs out is now complete. Hurrah!  Now is the time we plant the majority of our vegetables. It’s quite a commitment. Contrary to popular belief you can’t just shove the plants in and vegetables abound. It takes a lot more work than that, but it is so satisfying when you have a plate full of fresh stuff you’ve just picked that morning. Having a south facing garden, we thought it was cushty but too much sun can be very devastating so makeshift parasols are a necessity. My favourite summer veg is sweetcorn, griddled on the BBQ and dripping with butter… yum
I promised myself that I would only have one diary system this year. Last year, I spent some of my Mrs Mop money on a lovely leather A4 Filofax and print of the inserts. But I’ve just come across bullet journalling, which is essentially what I do, and I’m hooked. So have spent some time this week looking at Moleskines, again… Simon will never forgive me.

I’ve listened to the whole of my manuscript using the free version of Natural Reader. It’s a great way to edit and I pick up so much more that I would do just reading. I think it’s because I probably skip stuff and read what I think is on the page but it isn’t.
