As much as I’d like to forget that last heat-wave (I do my best to delete the summer of 2003 from my memory) there were some things that – looking back, of course – were nice. And mostly liquid.
New Gin & Tonic recipe:
One of these in the evening made the heat at least a bit bearable.
What’s in it?
a generous (think big here!) helping of Gin
frozen lemon slices (instead of ice)
pink grapefruit juice
New tea mug (and giant macaroon)
This one is fast becoming my favourite tea-cup (I’m equally picky about the shape and feel of the cup as I am about the tea in it). I bought it up North when I visited my parents. It’s from Le Creuset and I was totally floored to find that they now even make a proper teapot to go with this cup.
I like everything about it, the size, the weight (stoneware not porcelain) and the colour.
New camera (non-liquid)
I’ve finally managed to find a new camera, so I will spend the weekend and the next week getting used to it and producing lots of test pictures. A week from now I will be sitting in a train to London where I plan to make good use of my electric toy :-)! I’m off to the market now and then back to my desk for a few hours. Have a good weekend!
