We're jamming.......

Strawberry jam-ming infact. The supermarket had big wooden crates of Spanish strawberries for 3 euros each and I bought the last two on the shelves. And voila!

(Action shot)

Also I quickly whipped up this absolutely delicious Coconut and Raspberry traybake.
Find the recipe here. So delicious and quite fruity too plus it could be easily adapted for other in season fruit.

And finally just because he is so darn cute........

More rainbows...

A little bit more rainbow knitting I've just finished in the form of a baby hat. It's to go with a Little Bird set for a friends gorgeous new baby.

And here's a plate of Bordelaise cannelle I made. We like them drenched in the neighbours Cognac for a boozy dessert served with ice cream. 

Bon Dimanche

A special cake

It was my birthday yesterday. I was throughly spoilt by everyone including a very lovely friend who surprised me with this amazing cake. Such a thoughtful thing to do and it was so delicious!

Last day of half term

Beautiful sunshine and 24c here in the Charente Maritime.

We invented the new activity of garden snorkelling (he's Octonauts crazy) Its surprising how many squid and jellyfish were spotted.

Postcards from Les Arc 1950

Awesome week skiing in Les Arc 1950.
Sunshine most days and plenty of vin chaud and Xanthe (my favourite new drink - hot apple juice with one shot of Cognac and one of Poire Williams liqueur)
