Right so lets dwell no more on the winter, make the most of what we have & right now we are still enjoying temperatures in the 30's, yesterday it reached a wonderful 33c & the forecaste is for 27 - 32c for a while yet & it is a beautiful heat, meaning we can get around in it light footed as opposed to feeling like we are wading through quick sand!
I love my gadgets, kitchen gadgets that is :-) & I have just acquired a new Bulgarian gadget. Its a roaster for peppers & aubergines :-))))) I am very excited & intend to use it today it saves me getting out my huge George Forman grill & I can get on with the other stuff while it is doing it's own thing. So we are harvesting our peppers, tomatoes, marrows & aubergines every day now, & I am also buying them from the market along with peaches & big black plums.
These were taken a while ago they are a lot larger now & much more prolific.

Somehow this week I have twisted or done something to my back, its definitely the muscle right in the center. Wow it bloody hurts too! I did it last week & after a few days all was normal, then it just "went" again, no idea why? So I am on paracetamol & ibuprofen & being very careful & moving very gingerly or resting with lots of cushions! Not fair as I literally have cooking to do NOW but think its someone telling me to get on & read my friends book!!!! My friend Claire has written a couple of books & I have been given the honour of reading them & telling her honestly what I think! Phewwwwww, a big responsibility. I am very proud of her & intend to get on with the reading later today :-) Would be great if I could read in the garden but they are on a memory card & laptops are not very visual in the sun :-)
