I’m on writing retreat at Ptolemy’s in the Kent countryside and it is just marvellous! The countryside is dripping with bounty. There is a massive plum tree in the garden with beautiful ripe plump plums ready for the taking and we spent an hour or so picking blackcurrants at the nursery next door. Ptolemy is going to make blackcurrant ice-cream tonight.
Had a lovely unexpected afternoon with Mr S on Thursday as he tempted me away from the packing with a lunch of Mexican beer and Huevos Rancheros. Oh yum. He kindly transcribed the recipe for Vincent Price’s Friday Chicken which I intended making last night but Sally spatchcocked the chicken when I wasn’t looking! I rustled up the spinach salad to go with it. I wanted to get some of Ptolemy’s work in the picture of the salad above, she really makes some beautiful things.
It’s fabulous to get one last look at the loom in the greenhouse. Pt has a new one that actually fits inside her studio so the old one has been sold. It’s probably the most photographed loom in the world, so here’s my contribution before it leaves its greenhouse home.
