I've been busy with a family illness, work and general life, and so for for the last six months I've missed marmalade day. Marmalade day is the first Saturday of each month where outside St. Mary's Church in Putney there is a stand where you can buy jars of WI made jam.
The Women's Institute's of Great Britain are apparently the protectors of a secret recipes of preserves, for what they cook up is far better than what I've had to rely on for the last four months, which came from a supermarket.
After stocking up I went along Putney Embankment to watch the boats out on the river, knowing that on Sunday I'll have proper marmalade with my breakfast toast.
Tomorrow will be an exciting day too.
