I'd not gone to the supermarket to buy honey, in fact I'm not even sure how I wound up standing in front of the honey section, but there we are. I was astonished at the different varieties and their prices - has that always been the case? Bonkers. This one seemed to have the same consistency as grandpa's and I was intrigued by the English Borage, so into the basket it went. It's so clear and runny. I've been having it drizzled over frozen yoghurt, over fruit and, my favourite, on hot buttered toast. That salty-sweet pairing is lip-smackingly tasty, especially when served up with a steaming mug of tea.
*the trick here is to have a cheap, squeezy bottle of honey to hand. Slap it on your face before you get into the shower - you will feel stickier than a fly trap - and then enjoy as the warm water gently washes away the honey. It gently exfoliates and leaves your skin feeling just lovely.

Hope you've had a lovely weekend. Thought I'd share our own Heath Robinson drainage system with you for amusement. It has three buckets to catch the drips. The builders were finally able to add the resin roof coating on Friday in readiness for the skylight tomorrow (fingers and toes crossed, people!), which left the house smelling like a glue factory. Mr M flew away on business and Miss P was popped in the cattery for safe keeping. I had a delightful breakfast with Dr and Mrs B with their incredible views of Hampton Court Palace. I finally watched Bridesmaids. I played with my iPhone - very excited about tweeting. I read both the Saturday and Sunday papers. I spoke to my parents. I hoovered and dusted for the umpteenth time. I dried the laundry on the line until the sheets were stiff with sunlight and fresh air. I spotted the killer spider who lives in the conservatory - and is huge - I refuse to eat at the table until he/she has been encouraged out. And I ate handfuls of Mr M's heritage tomatoes for lunch and dinner.
What did you get up to?
