A few words at least!
I have been a bit awol from the PC of late but here's how my week has looked.
My blueberries started ripening at the weekend, I'm afraid I ate the best before realising I should have taken a photo! Oops.
Finally one of my lavender plants has flowered again - the others are still recovering from the snow we had this winter I think.
I have a little helper in the garden munching its way through the aphid population, I hope.
Saturday I was a busy baking bee - I tried out Nigella's lemon syrup loaf. It was very good indeed! But I am still after a nice crunchy tart glaze for my lemon loaves rather than syrup.
In case the lemon loaf wasn't enough for afternoon tea, I also made strawberry cheesecake cupcakes.
I needed to borrow a teapot of all things, still haven't bought one, but it was a nice spread with lots of catching up.
Afternoon tea also included some Razberri Stolli mixed in with my posh raspberry lemon pressé!
The weather was still stunning so we headed over to the park to walk off some of the calories.
Sunday was the day for an outing... down the coast.
A quick stop at Sandsend before heading onto...
Where everyone seemed to have descended. It was heaving but lovely nonetheless.
The weather was perfect, well perhaps a bit too hot, there wasn't much of a breeze and I ended up with quite a rosy complexion!
We managed to enjoy our fish and chips for lunch without too much interference from these guys. Although that was shortly after one had swooped down and taken a whole burger from someone's hands just as they were about to take their first bite!
We even went up to the abbey, where there was thankfully more of a breeze then hopped back in the car for the next stop.
Robin Hood's Bay - where I am sure we burnt off the fish and chips from the climb back to the car. We were there just as the tide was coming in but my oh my, I was actually pretty surprised that I made it back up the steep hill considering the trek down seemed so long. LOL
Alas no pics of the sheep on the drive home through the moors but it was a lovely day out, and I just needed a few days to recover! LOL Here's hoping the weather of last weekend makes another appearance - who knows Sunday could be bbq day!?
