5 Good things

From the last good things update, England is out of UEFA, but Wales is still there and I hope they win against Portugal. They have a real chance of getting into the finals. I wasn’t keen on football, but I liked watching this competition. I watched the matches played by Romania, England and the last matches from the quarter-finals.
During this time we had our wedding anniversary (we have 2 wedding anniversaries because we got married twice, 2 months apart), we’ve been to a Bar launch party and I’m going to blog about it. I will also blog about the NT property we’ve visited a couple of days ago. In July we are thinking of having a slightly longer holiday (1 week, but that is long for us) and I’m wondering if we should head up north, to Scotland. We’ll have a look online to see what are our options and we’ll decide these days.

1. Learning how to ride the bike. I don’t know yet, but I hope I’m getting there. Considering we picked a “secluded spot”, it was quite busy with people walking or ridding their bikes. It was lovely to see so many people telling me I will learn how to ride. I considered steadying wheels, but they don’t look good. I will keep trying to learn on a rented bike until I’m sure I can actually ride and only after that we’ll buy bikes.


2. Poppy field. I spotted this poppy field while we were driving and I thought the poppies look lovely. Hubby found a place to park the car and took some pictures to remember them. I think they are considered a weed and the farmer that has this field maybe is not so happy about them.

3. New bedspread from Ikea. I went to Ikea yesterday to buy jars as in June I was busy making lots of jars of jam (14 jars and we don’t even eat that much jam). I found a bedspread on sale and I got one, it has a vintage feel to it.

4. 4 types of mint. Hubby likes mint tea and I love having herbs in the garden, so we make a good team when it comes to growing food. We have mint in the garden, but when we saw pineapple mint, spearmint and apple mint, we wanted more. So we bought a plant of each to add to the herb garden. I will use leaves to make flavoured water and hubby will definitely use fresh mint to add flavour to his green teas.

5. Working on my food blog, CookStyle. I managed to add some pages and sort out the way the posts are accessed. It took me a while to figure out how I want it to look and then a lot of work to make it. Now I will resume posting my recipes.

  3. Good luck with learning how to ride a bike. I still remember the first time I rode my bike without stabilisers on and how good it felt.

    We have a few poppies in our garden, but unfortunately they’ve started to take over so I’ve had to pull them out.

  4. Love this post! How lucky were you to find the poppy field 🙂 Didn’t realise you had a separate food blog… Off to check that now!

  5. You’ll get there with the bike just keep practicing! Once you’ve built your confidence you’ll be away for sure! That’s the key with cycling!
