A thief in the night

We could hear munching in the dark and there sat a bold little visitor amongst the dying sunflowers having a lovely time.

Home again

Home again and the ferry coming back wasn't too bad thank goodness, not that I want to go on one again anytime soon! We had a lovely time seeing Janette and Pete and it did me the world of good. It was a shame about the weather but it didn't matter as it was their company I was after.

We did have one visit out to The House of Biscuits. A tourist attraction really but in low season it was nice and quiet.

And all I brought was a bar of soap!

Well not all throughout the trip obviously, our car coming home also contained 12 vintage apple crates for storage and display, 2 vintage linen sheets and of course lots of cheese.

A message from France

A spur of the moment decision to take the ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg was made this week. There's been a lot going on recently; my baby has gone to uni in mid Wales and I miss him terribly and worry constantly, I've had a wedding cake to make (previous post) and I actually went back and did a weeks office work too. So I felt a desperate need to see my friend who now resides in Normandy.

A good idea at the time until the ferry set off and we had a three hour white knuckle ride across the English channel. Now I need to decide if I am actually going to return home again on Tuesday? So far it looks as if Roy might be going home on his own and I'm waiting until the Spring when sea calms back down again!

We hadn't told Janette and Pete that we were coming, hoping it would be a nice surprise and judging by their reactions it certainly was, there were tears from both me and Janette.

The weather so far has been quite cloudy and cold but we did manage to have a nice evening walk down by the beach when the clouds broke on our first evening.

Rose and blossom 2 tier wedding cake

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to make a small wedding cake for an intimate wedding this Friday. No problem I said, what would you like? Oh I don't know was the answer, I'll leave that entirely up to you!

Well, for better or worse here it is ready for delivery.
