Yippee, I saw spring today!!

Rainy Day in London

A grey, rainy Friday morning in London spent seeing this fantastic exhibition. It quite blew me away. These figures made in the 1600s which were so life-like, I swear I saw one move!

(Trafalgar Square, Nelson's Column and Big Ben)

(National Gallery, Portico Entrance)

Apple Crumble makes you rumble

(apple crumble in thrifted pyrex)

Another old favourite which seems to be a hit - apple crumble with a little bit of vanilla ice-cream (even though it's snowing outside!)

Nursery Puddings

(Orange Jelly)

I am delighted that my little girl loves the same puddings as I enjoyed as a kid (and still do!).

The Far Cry

Currently reading: Persephone No 33 - The Far Cry by Emma Smith

Packed with such rich descriptions of India that you can hear, feel and almost taste the place.

"The rich and the poor were there, princes and paupers jumbled together, silk to cotton, shoulder to shoulder; naked perfumed flesh rubbed against the naked diseased. Fat paunches and empty bellies were neighbours with only their different hungers dividing them. One blessing, one mercy alone, was shared by every creature, wretched or fortunate, in that conglomeration of human beings: the warm air, the warm soft air of night that allowed no man, however poor, to die of cold, and no man, however rich, to shiver."

Mad Men

Thoroughly enjoying watching the daily re-run of Mad Men on BBC 4 or, to be more precise, watching Jon Hamm!
