That cake looks luscious FG. We have discovered a block of raspberries in the new garden and I have also bought some fresh new plants for our future fruit cave. I suspect the only slugs I have came with us as passengers hidden in pots but we do have fat, juicy snails. They get lobbed in the road or stood on depending on where I am in the garden.
When the in-laws were asked if there was any special thing they wanted to eat they said, with one voice, Eton Mess and your bread and butter pudding. Surely they're both easy enough for them to do at home but, apparently not, and then I do use fresh, buttery brioche rather than stale white sliced.....
Love your bear Clari. Is Reggie jealous?
Dove - I've been limping about with that bloody toe again so Possum asked if I still had my orthopedic boot collection. No. Wasn't planning to have broken feet again. How long before you are liberated?
Joyce - will be thinking of you tomorrow. Take care and take all the comfort you can from friends and family.
Jolly hot again here and expected to stay that way for the rest of the week. Hotter at home but maybe a storm on Sunday afternoon. Hope it's dry for the evening as we've booked to go and see Carmina Burana in the old medieval Halles at Moutiers-ls-Mauxfaits.
