Summer Snaps (At My Heels)

Some sights and delights from my two week absence..

Speaking of delights, Hannah, I will post the recipe for the cake in the previous post, (it was a banana and almond cake fyi), and I have just, this very evening, pulled a rather splendid-looking plum cake out of the oven, so perhaps I'll include that recipe as well (a modified version of a Nigel Slater recipe).

We're heading off for a few days tomorrow, a mini holiday if you will, so I'll be back next week to talk cake and other fripperies.

Thanks for the wishes!

My new job is being a real graphic designer, it's very exciting, creating lovely things for packaging and gifts!

I'm sure I can blog about work when it comes out in the shops.

Oh, what a lovely set of pictures. I want to paint my nails red and put on a veiled top hat just like Iris. It just seems too wonderful and fun! Thank you too for your comment on my little old blog. I feel just as you do and am glad that you are having lots of time to frolic about this summer. Maybe our little yellow tin birds know one another! All the best, a
