Chicken Cordon Bleu

This year I have found that our summer months resembled autumn rather than summer. In the few weeks since I have retired from my career there have only been a few occasions when it has been sunny enough to sit outside in my garden. It hasn’t even been sunny enough for me to be inspired to go out on a day trip. Day trips in the rain are only fun if you have a companion to share them with! Despite the weather I have been enjoying myself doing different things than I had planned to do.

Today the sunshine played hide and seek. In the morning as I was choosing meal options for the next couple of days I heard gentle tweeting in the back garden. The sun had come out and a family of long tailed tits and a couple of blue tits were flying around my garden and settling in the trees that surround it.  I watched them for a while until a magpie arrived and scared them off. Shortly after that the sun was once again obscured by clouds.

Later in the afternoon the sun came out again and I seized the opportunity to sit at the top of my garden reading a book before it was time for me to go out to my regular thursday meeting.

When I arrived home, the sun was still playing its tricks would it shine so that Mr C and I could enjoy dinner on the patio. The sun decided to be kind to us :-)

    That’s a fun game, I’m sure, Cherry…but next time, please invite us! :)

    We’ve had sunny days most of this winter, but I rarely go out. In fact we’ve hardly had a winter at all this year, spring has started three weeks early. Perhaps I too should try and go outside with a book sometime!

      I can recommend sitting outside with a book. I chose the top of the garden because it is shady there, it is also near the trees where they birds like to fly about.

    This sounds like fun and I know eating on the patio taste better than inside ;)
