It seems that all my good intentions were not realised as it is yet again 1 month since I updated my blog. The DIA conference ┬áin Chicago (which I mentioned in my last blog) was very good and, as always, it was great to meet up with colleagues who I hadn’t seen for a while.

Whilst travelling on the plane to and from Chicago, I spent quite a bit of time knitting, which is one of the things I do to relax and is a very useful way to spend a flight. My current project (for those interested!) is a Kaffe Fasset cardigan of many colours, which is for my daughter-in-law. It is very vibrant with 15 different colours and enjoyable to knit.

Now we are well and truly into summer in the UK, and I am enjoying my garden as well as being able to spend time walking in the UK. One of the advantages of working from home is that I can give the garden more attention, in small doses! This has been better for the vegetables I think. This year for the first time I have grown potatoes – they taste so different from the shop bought ones! I’m also growing the usual suspects – tomatoes, green beans, spinach and squash. The photo at the top of this page was taken on a London LOOP walk in Bushy Park, London on a very sunny Saturday. it was easy to forget we were in London.

I will try to update this before the end of the month but things to look forward to in August include holidays with the family (Cornwall and the South Coast) and the ICPE meeting in Montreal.
