Where does time go?!
I can’t believe how quickly a week’s gone by since my last post. Or my last posy, as I just typo-d 🙂
This one’s all about my mum.
Like last year, I went with her to the Mothering Sunday service in her church, where she sings in the choir. It’s always lovely, with Sunday School children singing and handing out bunches of spring flowers to everyone and it’s always packed.
I took my mum some presents, of course, including another batch of these:
She loved the beetroot cookies when I last made them so I wielded my heart-shaped cookie cutters again.
I covered some in lemon icing, created what I fondly believed to be artistic drizzles on others:
And left some totally naked. Cover your eyes, kids.
I also took her a heather plant, and a mug which says it all. Thanks Mum for being great xx
It wasn’t intentional that everything was so – pink! There was also (just visible on the sofa) a helium balloon I’d got from work, because I thought it would be funny. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any helium. And just in case you’re wondering whether it’s possible to blow a helium balloon up yourself, it ain’t. I know 🙂
She liked the cookies, as did I. I had to test a couple, after all.
Some other random deliciousness from this past week:
Jessica’s white bean gratin, with mushrooms added for good measure; delicious.
Some more carrot cake truffles:
Also delicious. And talking of carrots, I love my job. Those aren’t two completely unrelated statements either because on Tuesday, I’m going to an animal behaviourist’s new obedience class, for a feature for the paper. And when I say obedience class, it involves agility too – and it’s for rabbits.
I kid you not – and the behaviourist says she’ll bring a couple of “spares” so even those that don’t own rabbits can have a go too. The mind boggles.
Can’t wait and, of course, because it’s for a feature, there’ll be a photographer there…!
Have a great week 🙂
