Hello. Lovely news for DD, LP and WW. Very happy for you all and hope it continues to go well. DD if you PM me your email address I can let you have all my cake recipes as tested and adored by Belgians who didn't know what a cake could be. Use to flabby fatless sponge bases on patisserie confections.
We had an interesting day yesterday and are a lot poorer for it. We arrived at the Japanese themed Foire at Nantes to discover it was really just an Ideal Home exhibition in disguise with a teeny corner of Japanese stuff with some Bonsai, a pretend garden and some kimonos and sushi on sale. To get there we wandered through giant hall after giant hall of household and garden gizmos, jacuzzis, water beds, camping stuff (don't think so), kitchens, bedrooms and then I spotted an interesting shelf thingy for basins to go in our new shower room so got OH to stop and look. He liked. It came with an interior design architect attached.
We have now paid a deposit on a bespoke, designer shower room. he may have to settle for a paddling pool rather than a swimming pool later on.
Possum did find 3 books on Japan - culture, language and recipes - and I found a nice wee fan for dancing and we had a delicious, but very late lunch. Got home shattered.
Been busy with Possum all day while OH plays golf so no gardening. It's sunny but just a bit breezy. Some rain would be good but I'm not complaining. The countryside is looking fabulous with all sorts of fresh green foliage birsting forth and blossom and cowslips and primroses and it smell fabulous.
Possum has just told me Jude Law is to be the new Dumbledore in the next Fabulous Beasts. What with him and Johnny Depp as Grindlewald I may not be able to cope. Can't stand either of them.
Dove - pretty pattern but I'd have thought fleeces with pockets would be more practical for WW, especially ones with removal sleeves or no sleeves for transitions.
