What a mess I’m in! The French farmer’s wife next door told me I must pick the cherries before tonight’s storm! I’ve done that, and stoned them and put them in the freezer, ready to make jam and chutney. I’ve picked the peas and the broad beans. Dug up the shallots, weeded the plot. I’ve fed the tomato plants and I’m now cooking the dinner. I need 48 hours in a day!
