I think it's safe to say here in Britain we;re reeling from the EU Referendum. It seems there was absolutely no plan as to what would happen if we voted leave. Heaven help us.

On a more positive note, here in Scotland we have Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the SNP and First Minister of Scotland, who does have a plan and is setting it in action. Thank goodness there is some sanity in evidence. I'm glad we have her looking out for us.

On the home front, we've been enjoying the sunshine and getting out for lots of dog walks. It really blows the cobwebs away.

On the meal front I've only been organised with lunches. Roast vegetables and grains cooked ahead and stacked in the fridge as a base of some tasty lunches. I'm about to head into the kitchen and sort our lunches for tomorrow.
