Friday

I know, it’s a rubbish title. But it is, indubitably, Friday. (Saturday tomorrow, fact fans).

Like any other week, it’s been a mixture of work-type shenanigans and horse-related malarkies. And like every other week this March, it’s been like this:

Literally not going to rise above freezing on Sunday – and see that lovely sleet tomorrow? And the fact it’s not going to warm up all next week? Coldest March for 60 years, apparently. How delightful.

Some slightly different things from this week include this:

Having had nothing but carrot porridge or carrot pancakes for breakfast since before the wheel was invented, I suddenly fancied something different, invested in a loaf of Sainsbury’s own brand GF seeded bread and had it toasted with my mum’s home-made raspberry jam, cream cheese and blueberries.

Delicious, like a cheesecake (in a toasty kind of way 🙂 ) and although I thought I’d be hungry, it was just as filling as porridge, plus easier to make and with less washing-up; winner all round.

Also unusual was the fact I got slightly concussed on Wendesday night – that’ll teach me for pulling hay down from the ground instead of climbing to the top of the stack… believe me when I say you don’t want a bale of that falling on your head!

I got baking too this week; first cake for a long time:

It was another caramel apple ring cake, for a colleague’s birthday, and though I says it as shouldn’t, it is delicious. The combination of apple, spice and buttery caramel is out of this world – there was none left by this afternoon.

Hopefully you can’t see the crack; I was impatient and took it out of the tin too soon so some of it decided to stay put – but that caramel’s perfect for sticking broken cakes together, it turns out…!

Have a good (and hopefully snow-free) weekend 🙂
