It's June

 With all the storms and rain in May the tea is doing very well. We could do with three pluckers to pluck the tea in our small holding but for the first time in two years we require two days with four or five pluckers to get the job done. We also have gathered enough firewood for the winter and to cook the dogs food each night. Yes, they get to eat food cooked on a wood fire. Very fancy.
 June started on a shocking note. I lost a dear friend. A friend I went to school with and the bond was deeper because we went to boarding school and grew up together. The class of twenty girls are more like sisters to each other. Dengue got her. Such a warm, joyous and lively person. She died too young.
I was introduced to Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4 by my biological sister and it's been delightful. A lot of my stitching of 1 year of stitches has been done listening to Elif Shafak, Whoopi Goldberg and Ed Sheeran. All of which I enjoyed. Bill Gates was boring, I loved Liz Lochhead's Scottish accent and got to know that the Makar is the title given to the Scottish national poet.
 Have a good week.
