Spring is Coming

Well January went in a blur and my pins are out. My feet have been sore as I learn how to walk again, but I am back in the real world. Work, shopping, stroppy teenagers and a tired husband. 2018 has been a year of change already, my husband has started his new job. My son has passed his driving test and my daughter is getting ready for her exams.

We decided to go to Stratford Upon Avon as my daughter needed so much ingredients for her Food Technology practical exam. We started with a coffee and look how my husband’s milk came out -valentine froth.


We looked around the shops and then as the weather was so cold and miserable Simon treated Carly and I to lunch. We went into the Four Teas, a 1940’s themed café. I had soup and granary bread, but my daughter must have been peckish, because she had a sausage sandwich on white bread, a warm cheese scone and this.

That was Saturday, then Sunday Carly was up with the lark, practising her food tech. We had homemade pasta with goats cheese and sweet potato, panacotta and small pastry desserts.

She did a great job, didn’t she. It did mean that my husband and I had to go out again and get more ingredients for her practical cooking test at school.

We had a small walk around Draycote Water, as I am building up to doing our usual weekend 5K walk.

The sun was out, but it was very cold. The boats were out and people were jogging and walking around the Reservoir.

As you can see Spring will be here soon and I cannot wait. I am definitely a sunshine person, a sit by the fire person. I really hate being too cold.

We did have to stop off for wool and a hot milk Americano at Tofts shop Dunchurch. That is a recipe for getting warm again right. !
