It was another tough week for us. My dear husband was off gallivanting again for almost a week, and I was left to hold the fort. Sash was still quite unsettled, and didn't sleep well for several nights. He can function on a couple of hours of sleep a night, but I can't. I plod along like a zombie, hence blogging has been infrequent.
On Sunday we didn't go out at all. I baked some muffins, using Stork Ready to bake classic cupcakes. I spotted this new product, while doing grocery shopping from Tesco, and wanted to try it. Basically, you just cut the pouch and squeeze the dough into cupcake or muffin cases before baking. They were not bad at all for being ready-made, both boys enjoyed them. The decorations are Eddie's handiwork.
Monday morning was very hectic. After 17 days of no school, we found it hard to get ready in the morning. I haven't done any photos except a few shots for a tea review.
I love that magnolia tree by the Windrush river, it's in full bloom right now.
With so many days of rain, our garden is a kingdom of snails of all sizes. They might look cute, but these buggers have ruined so many of my plants, including potted lilies.
Market day on Thursday, and again running to meet a friend for coffee, I snapped this bread display.
On Wednesday my parrot tulips were all green monsters, then overnight several of them opened up in a riot of red colour. So beautiful! Thank you, Mum (she planted them last autumn around the garden).
Today is the National Tea Day, so of course, I had to celebrate. Out comes my favourite Russian porcelain teapot, which I had for over 22 years; and also Cornishware mugs. I have only 4 Cornishware mugs in my collection, two blue and two red.
In my "dream house" (one I'd love to have) I would have an open dresser with a big collection of Cornishware.
