The weather was kind this weekend, Mr TS wandered off to Portland to do a bit of essential maintenance on the boat’s bottom, DG disappeared to the river with her chums, BB and I gardened, biked and played and my teen boys revised. Again. It’s endless. I’m going to write a parenting manual warning people of the fool hardiness of leaving a two year gap between children – it works really well right up to the point where they are sitting GCSEs and A Levels at THE SAME TIME! As I wrote for Tesco Living, there isn’t much I can do for them other than listen a lot and keep them well fed. This cous cous salad eaten under the shade of the apple tree is full of goodness and summer promise – the exams will finish, you will be free to enjoy the sunshine or to sleep until the afternoon but, in the meantime, get this in your tummy.
