I can't help myself ... I did some more baking! Luckily I have 3 people to eat it for me (but you will notice that there are 4 slices!!). The lemon in the fridge was crying out to be made into a Lemon Drizzle Cake! Our son "Jay" and I love anything lemon flavoured.
And I had some buttermilk that needed using before long, to I made these Mini Cinnamon and Banana Loafs for the first time and some buttermilk scones, that were delicious with homemade raspberry jam.
We had 2 sessions at the allotment (just as well after all those calories!) - OH has dug half of it now and I have finished weeding the fruit-cage. That resulted in 2 buckets of bindweed root. I know I will never be rid of it, but hopefully I can keep it in check. Started tying in the summer-fruiting raspberry canes. We also have half a row of autumn-fruiting raspberries that I planted last year. A nice little freebie arrived in the post from Homebase - a packet of flat-leaved parsley seeds. How did they know I needed some more of these? Spooky!
Saturday afternoon we went shopping - OH and children's last minute dash to buy Mother's Day cards! OH would have forgotten if it wasn't for someone (female of course) reminding him at work on Friday! I cheekily asked if I could have a book instead of chocolates this year, so Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook is on order from Amazon. Also bought some new jeans for Jay, whilst we were in town, as he has had another growth spurt. My Mum loved her fingerless gloves, that I knitted for her for Mother's Day and wore them Sunday afternoon when she went out for a ramble with Dad. Sadly they don't live near us, so we won't be seeing them for a few more weeks.
Today is our daughter "Fay's" last GCSE mock exam. Next week the real ones start - a scary time, though I think I am more worried than she is! Providing she passes her exams, she plans to go to the local art college in September.
