Because it was such a beautiful day, I thought I would relieve the pressure on Hampstead Heath by staying put in my garden. So this is early morning at the boating pond a couple of days ago.
My good intentions had been to hack some more ivy but by the time that I had proof read our next book with Anna Del Conte and mulled over possible illustrations, somehow my ivy hacking enthusiasm seemed to have evaporated.
(And are you intrigued by ‘our next book with Anna Del Conte’? I hope so… Simply Italian, Simply Gluten Free – Sub heading: Mostly Milk Free, Mostly Meat Free, Lactose free or Low Lactose.

Hopefully available on Amazon with the next couple of weeks. Watch this space…)
