This weekend gone, we were at Old Sleningford Farm for a magnificent party. I didn’t manage to speak to all of the 100 or so guests but every conversation was worth having. I also got some dancing in!

Definitely something to consider… In fact, this afternoon, I went so far as to experiment with a pound of strawberries and a few fronds of fennel.
For once, I put enough lemon juice in the jam, so it set – hurray! But the fennel worked, too, so I know what I’ll be doing more of tomorrow.
My daughter insists she is not going to try any but she had a good time at the weekend. These swings were great:
