1) Last night we had fajitas made with tomatillo passata. They were tasty, but possibly a little too sharp. I've just made a batch of half tomato, half tomatillo passata, so we'll see if that is a better balance. We picked our first aubergine yesterday, too, and I roasted it for my lunch: yum!

2) Mike's been off to France, taking a gamble (which thankfully worked out) on Calais being calmer than it has been lately. We're now back to being stocked up on wine!

3) I did some hedge-trimming of weeds around the edges of the property this morning (the strimmer wouldn't have managed some of the head-high nettles, or the brambles encroaching on the riding school: we really need to do something about them). Good to get it done, but my hands have been shaky ever since. I think I may have to give up on power tools entirely.
