Sentence a Day in June

June - the month that sees us officially half way through the year, and I am still remembering to document each day with just one sentence.  

Day 1 Over to Jon's to watch Spurs v Liverpool; delicious barbecue but let's not mention the football result 😢

Day 2 Sunday lunch where all talk of football was banned (son in law supports Liverpool)

Day 3 Yoga in the morning and then looked after baby Rosie while her mum had an appointment in London 😀

Day 4 Bit of a lazy day, catching up on housework and ironing while watching Netflix

Day 5 Trying to plan an Italian themed dinner and spent far too long on the internet looking for reasonably priced Venetian masquerade masks to give to everyone 

Day 6 Zumba!  Experimenting with a lentil based bolognese for dinner as one of our guests at the Italian evening is vegetarian so I need a alternative to lasagne.

Day 7 Visited Henry Moore exhibition during the day and had friends over for drinks in the evening 

Day 8 Invited to friends for dinner in the evening - Greek food - so delicious

Day 9 Our local Country Park has just installed some new play equipment so we just had to take Leo there after lunch to try everything out

Day 10 Dentist - practically skipped out of the surgery after being told there was nothing to be done apart from a hygienist appointment in a couple of weeks

Day 11 Looked after Rosie while Rachel took Leo to the hospital so he could be discharged from the allergy clinic - bye bye egg allergy

Day 12 Knitted a hat in an evening

Day 13 Zumba morning, hair cut afternoon

Day 14 Miserable weather - this whole week has been so wet and horrible.

Day 15 Practice another vegetarian recipe for our Italian themed dinner party  - I don't have many veggie friendly dinner party recipes but I think this one is a winner! 

Day 16 Packing our bags ready for a few days away with Coco in Norfolk

Day 17 Lovely long walk ending at the sand dunes in Burnham Overy Staithe

Day 18 Visited Holkham Hall - what an impressive house in a fabulous location

Day 19 Coco is getting quite used to having dinner at the pub

Day 20 Zumba! 

Day 21 Had a gel manicure - hands feel very pretty again - First official day of summer too 🌞

Day 22 Jet fighters flying at supersonic speed intercepted a flight at Stansted airport which caused a sonic bang over the town where I live - what a shock!

Day 23 Baby shower for Sophie - a lovely afternoon tea and fun games - Mum-to-be is glowing

Day 24 Looked after Rosie in the afternoon while Rachel went into London for an appointment - she was a very well behaved guest.

Day 25 Dentist day - thought I was only going for a hygienist appointment but ended up having a filling in my wisdom tooth - "do you want to make an appointment to come back and have it done another day or shall we do it now?" May as well get it over and done with!

Day 26 Day to myself while Paul went to Buckingham Palace to see an exhibition of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci - kept myself busy by baking

Day 27 Zumba! Rachel, Leo and Rosie came for dinner as James had to go to Manchester for work and wasn't going to be home until very late.

Day 28 Tried a new tapas restaurant that has opened in town with our friends Mandy and Richard - it was delicious.

Day 29 On the hottest day of the year, we had friends over in the evening for an Indian takeaway - after we'd eaten our meal we managed to sit out in the garden until almost midnight!

Day 30 Phew it's another hot one - family over for Sunday lunch, better fill up that paddling pool

I've also been taking a photo every day to upload to the 1 Second Everyday app - here's video evidence of my month

Are you going to join in too?  One sentence a day - that sounds doable doesn't it?

A very busy month, lots of friends, family & dining activities. I like the hat you knitted. Would you like to share those vegetarian recipes? I'm trying really hard to incorporate lentils into my veggie life.

The bolognese I tried was this https://www.itv.com/lorraine/food/rosies-beautiful-bolognese which is from Joe Wickes and the veggie lasagne is from Delia Smith https://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/pasta/roasted-mediterranean-vegetable-lasagne
I think I will be cooking the second one, purely because I'm doing a meat lasagne for the carnivores amongst us!
Let me know what you think!

A great month by the sounds of things Deb! Hope you enjoy your summer heatwave. Great to read of your month on the other side of the world :)

Rebecca Jo said...

OHHH - what kind of yarn is that? Love that hat!!!!

debs14 said...

Rebecca, it's such lovely yarn! It's by Cygnet and it's called Seriously Chunky Prints. The pattern was a free download from their website. I never knitted anything so fast before!

I got waylaid on commenting by writing down the wool and pattern details of that delightful hat! What a month full of friends and good and nice things to do :). And your haircut is lovely - very elfin, really suits you. Sorry to hear about the filling, after your thinking you didn't need anything doing: bummer :(. Here's to another month of summer, hopefully!

Truly cringed at the thought of dentist day. My turn is coming soon. Yuck.

Like the fresh hair cut. My turn for that is coming, too. Still toying with going natural.

Can't imagine knitting or crocheting a hat in a night, or a fortnight or a year. So lovely. You make beautiful things. I remember your work on the quilt around the time you were updating your upstairs space, I think. The colors you selected for the quilt were so peaceful.

That Coco. I just love that pup. Reminds me so of a crazy poddle mix we had with so much personality. Cici. She would have adored the new relaxed policies of allowing pets into stores and pubs.

Laughed aloud at the idea of spending too much time looking for masquerade masks. What fun, though!! I spend too much time doing everything.

That "hall" looks amazing! What a fun month despite dreary rainy weather.

Ruth said...

What a great month for you! And as I always say ... I love this monthly round-up of yours!

I swear, your one sentence a day post makes your life look like so much fun! I feel like I'm in a bit of a rut. Maybe if I tried this technique, I would find my life is a little more exciting than I think it is!!
