If you were expecting another Gregg's sausage roll weekly photo, sorry to disappoint you. Eddie said he wanted to change, and asked to go to Costa instead. Well, that is almost a sacrilege!
Instead of a much loved sausage roll, he has chosen a donut-shaped bake sweet thingy made with rice krispies.
On Monday the sky was criss-crossed everywhere I walked. Must have been a busy flying day for the RAF base.
We have a small pondette in the garden, which is an old feature, completely overgrown. We have covered most of it when children were little, and now it does need to be re-dug and probably lined anew, but don't think it's going to happen any time soon. We have pond irises growing there every year. I love the pattern of fresh green leaves.
We have quite a bit of wild life in the garden, they start arriving back home by the evening. This one looked a bit dyspeptic.
The fig tree has beautiful leaves.
Yesterday's bake - Coconut and chocolate loaf cake. I used a box of Dr Oetker coconut chocolate babka, which I bought in the Polish shop. It wasn't bad, but not very chocolatey.
I had no plans to watch the Royal Wedding. I was hoping that most people would be glued to their TVs, so we timed going out into town just around 12pm. To my surprise, a lot of people had the same "bright" idea. We went to the Food festival in town, and it was packed full.
I only bought a few little things, like beautiful tiger-striped tomatoes, a pack of dried Ancho chilli peppers and a few slices of cake for the boys.
Eddie has chosen a horrid-looking psychedelic Disco cake. I do hope he doesn't have indigestion, as I don't trust all these food colourings.
He was pretty happy with it, though he did mentioned the story of his friend J who has eaten a green and blue cupcake at the school fair and then had green poo. This memorable story resurfaces every time we see cakes like that.
