1 Sleepless night, all but ten minutes. Breakfast at 3 am because I was bored as well as hungry, but it didn’t put me to sleep.
2 The first local asparagus this evening! R saw it at a roadside stall and brought it home triumphantly.
3 It cost £3 for 10 spears! I trimmed off the ends and then ate the raw trimmings before cooking the spears. Wicked waste makes woeful want.
4 I potted up baby tomato and pepper plants. Nurturing seedlings is what I love to do.
5 R went out at 4 o’clock and I got home at 4.10. About an hour later, Ben asked for his dinner, so I fed him. How was I to know that he assured R that he was terribly hungry at 3.30 and R fell for it? Suckers, both of us.
