Frantically scribbling this on a scrap of paper during my lunch break because I sort of a little bit completely forgot about it. I was too busy trying to eke every tiny moment of basking potential out of this midday hour. So frantically scribbling yes…whilst flopped in the garden and rocking a SULA situation. Don’t feel too bad for me.
This weekly bimble has been a particularly lovely one so shall we crack on? Caution: there was a lot of wine. And some gin.
The Perfect Cup of Tea Before we get to the gin shall we discuss the merits of the perfect cup of tea. Its particular qualities are hard to define but we all know what makes our own particular tea perfection. I’m not opening the can of universal tea perfection again, yeesh. BUT when you get a perfect colour and temperature FOR YOU, in the right mug and with the right biscuit accompaniment (milk chocolate hobnob – I’m all about the controversy), it’s just….ach.
My Little Family We spent Easter Sunday evening huddled around the table, full of roast dinner, playing Articulate, drinking wine and properly belly laughing together. They are far too few and somewhat unconventional but that little family of mine are bloody brilliant, spaniels and step girls and all.
M&S Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Buns I salivate at the mere thought of them. They are just ridiculous. Get some. Put them all in your face at once.Sunshine and Wine I do not feel old enough to have friends of TWENTY TWO YEARS. No, stop it you. I really am. A couple of them were home in the shire this weekend so we caught up over wine in the Spring sunshine with one hell of a view. The wine and the sunshine would have been enough. Sharing it with two people who know every little dark bit of your history – like the time before the braces and dun dun duuuuuuuun….The Perm-was all kinds of spectacular.
Bank Holiday Cliches I sat in a beer garden, went for an aimless walk, cleaned the kitchen cupboards, did a bit of gardening and ate my body weight in sweets and chocolate. I think I ticked every cliché off the British Bank Holiday list and it was glorious.
Middle Aged Dogs, New Tricks It’s so nice to have time to kill with those fur faces and they are so excited when they learn something new. We now turn left AND right people. And Pete can knit you a snood if you ask him really nicely, payment in gravy bones and hotdog sausage please and thank you.The Gin I harped on about it a lot last week and I have a post coming up on it so I’ll just say that the Gin festival was ruddy bloody brilliant and leave it at that.
