What I’ve Been Up To

June is one of my favourite months!

It includes our wedding anniversary and my birthday, which are made even better by a nice holiday.  We spent 9 days in Italy enjoying the sights of Pompeii and the taste of pizza and Aperol Spritz.  We had 2 lovely AirBnBs (Naples, Ischia).  You can get £25 off you first stay with my link: www.airbnb.co.uk/c/soliver8

Castel Aragonese in Ischia

I discovered the self guided walks published by City of London and spent a nice evening following one of the tree trails.

 

We’ve continued to work hard at the allotment.  I was very excited to harvest some broad beans, new potatoes, lettuce and radishes and am hoping for lots more produce over the summer!

 

This weekend we’ll be making the most of the sunshine with a BBQ.  What do you have planned?
