The week started with a soggy bank holiday and the rain has continued ever since. The weather forecast has looked better in the west and I’m quite happy about that because the west gets more rain than we do in the east so it’s good that it’s balanced up a bit! Still its been a bit rubbish, can’t believe it’s June.
On the bright side it’s given me a chance to catch up on some reading and I’ve read two amazing books. First I read a book called ‘behind the beautiful forevers’ by Katherine Boo, she’s an American investigative journalist and her book about life in a Mumbai slum is extraordinary and is written in the words of its residents. The second I’m almost finished and is equally good. It’s by Bryan Stevenson, a lawyer working with death row prisoners in America’s south, especially the disproportionately high number of black convicts. His passion and determination shine through.

The miserable weather has been better appreciated by my veggies than by me. My new raised bed is coming along nicely and the photo below shows how well the peas, lettuces and courgettes are doing. I’m not sure what happened to the carrots though, no sign of them yet.
The photo in my last post showing the view on the way home from work now has further additions, don’t they look lovely?
Not only that but the sun was shining when I took the photo.
Have a lovely weekend and hope the weather picks up.
