tête-à-tête

A little tête-à-tête is good for the soul...

Both to look at...


And face-to-face...

On friday I spent a lovely day with my dear friend Pipany. A day that contained much chatter, knitting, laughing, eating, playing with Walter on the beach, drinking coffee (in the morning) and graduating to tea (in the afternoon) as time ticked by. And eventually, a glass of wine as I was invited to stay for supper. A few planned hours drifted effortlessly into twelve...

We also made some delicious lemon muffins. This was a collaborative effort. The ready-prepared dry ingredients, along with the muffin cases and a lemon, were sent to me as part of my seven days of specialness parcel. Genius! My oven is on the blink, so Pip's was used, and the delicious results shared. Thank you Pennie for an amazing week of gifts (more of which in another post).


And now another weekend has flown by. A weekend which eventually produced a glorious afternoon of warm sunshine and blue skies. I felt like I was having a peek at spring.

What an especially lovely idea to send you the ingredients for muffins. Would you be able to email me the recipe Diana? I do love a spot of lemony baking.

It sounds like a perfect weekend. The lemon muffins look delicious. Do I spot poppy seeds? I am so jealous that you had sunshine. The greyness carry's on here: dull and damp for most of the time. How I long for spring! x
