Shrove Tuesday ...

... aka Pancake Day was later this year, on 24th February. Nowadays I tend to associate pancake-making with the passing of my Nana, as it was Shrove Tuesday and that evening we left the hospital and went to my parent's home to make pancakes for the children. It may sound a strange thing to do but it helped my Mum and I to cope with the events of that day.

I make my batter by feel rather than weighing the ingredients and this year my pancakes turned out better than usual. Last year I wouldn't have posted pictures of my pancakes for the world! lol!
They even flipped well.
Sugar and lemon juice de rigueur.

I've loved catching up with your blog, I feel like I've been away forever! So sorry that you've lost lettuce. It's hard when pets go :(

Take care

Hi Kim, great to hear from you. I still keep expecting to see Lettuce outside, it seems strange without him.

Best wishes, Pj x
