I sat around sunbathing most of the day. I just reread all the Harry Potter books and today I started reading “Little Girl Lost” by Barbie Probert Wright.
I’m about half way through but so far I’m really liking it. It’s a true story of two sisters, one 7, the other 19, travelling across Germany in the end of the Second World War to find their mother, crossing battlefields and surviving through air raids and attacks. It is written by “Barbie” (Barbel), the 7 year old girl almost 60 years later using her sister’s journal as the spine of the story.
This evening we had chicken and salad for tea with new potatoes, then a nectarine sorbet that my boyfriend and I made, here’s the recipe we used:
Half a cup of sugar (or slightly less because we thought it was too sweet)
Half a cup of water
A couple of tablespoons of lemon juice
1. Chop the pitted nectarines into chunks (with or without the skin) and boil in a saucepan until soft (about 10 minutes) with a lid.
2. Take off the heat, stir in the sugar and blend in a food processor.
3. Leave to cool then stir in the lemon juice.
4. Now you can either freeze it immediately or put it into an ice cream maker for a little and freeze.
Serve alone or with fresh berries, lovely!!
After our sorbet, my boyfriend and I walked the dog in some fiends above my house where there is a lovely view back over the village.
