Cordially invited to chill

An early morning trimming the dead flowers from the thyme that sits in a stone trough in front of the house was accomplished in the cool before the sun had edged round from the east. This was followed by coffee and contemplation of the long peaceful day ahead. There will be time for a swim after the morning session of editing my new book which is very close to completion, although I never cease to find spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes. Several hours later – swim and sleep in the sun have been achieved, and enjoyed and the time has come for a cool refreshing long drink which will be created with some home made elderflower cordial and sparkling wine. The elderflower cordial is from the same wonderful people, Jenny and Frank Palmer, who recently gave me a bottle of their walnut oil. So another difficult Saturday afternoon has been successfully negotiated. This only leaves the chore of enjoying a  barbecue with good friends in a nearby village on what looks like being a perfect summer evening.
