SIMPLE SUMMER LOVES: FLOWERS AND FOOD...

It doesn't take much to make me happy when the weather's cooperating. Even though my garden is nothing to write home about, I can still find a few sprigs of jasmine, a couple of roses and this beautifully scented tree/bush thing (which may be a weed) to cut and put around my flat.

 Lately, every meal I have at home involves a variation on the same ingredients: avocado, cherry tomatoes, soft goat cheese, basil infused olive oil, salt & pepper. I find this combination to be delicious when mixed with: spaghetti or chickpeas or barley couscous or baby new potatoes. I must also drink a can of San Pellegrino Limonata every day and find myself geekily scanning Italian delis and Waitrose to find the cheapest price for it.

Lastly, I'm thinking of lodging a formal complaint with Hope & Greenwood chocolatiers. Their packaging makes it far too easy to choose a variety of truffles as a gift, then to prise the box open, eat one (or three) and reseal it without anyone being the wiser and it not looking as if any are missing. I'm particularly fond of the lavender and geranium flavour truffles, which also come conveniently pre-packaged in a sealed box for you to post to me.

*Happy summer solstice*

I wish I was there, where it was so magical, but I've got all of the above plus daylight, which will do for now...
