The weather has been absolutely delightful these past two weeks, allowing for windows and doors to be thrown wide open to take full advantage of the fresh air, although I did catch a magpie trying to break and enter through an upstairs window the other day.
A list of things to do whilst on holiday compiled (including having your nails painted yellow and rowdy games of Kerplunk and Frustration), and completed with the exception of the mini railway! A little baking also attempted despite the heat, comprising the sacrificial slaying of a can of Guinness to make this chocolate cake from the hummingbird bakery cake days and these little delights from a furtive imagination.
The cake would have been Paul Hollywood perfect had it not been for my oven requiring significantly longer to bake anything. Yes, I can hear the arguments stacking up for a new kitchen, in my head anyway. I have also recently lost my soul to Pinterest, have a peek if you have a little time or the rest of your life to waste which would seem to be my approach. Another current obsession is Sarah Beeney, Double your House for Half the Money with me knocking down walls in my dreams. As they say dream on, girl.
Hope your days have also been filled with sunshine xxx
