FG - I hope you're clean and dry now. What a pain! Those cakes look very prim and proper for a significant birthday but absolutely gorgeous and very tempting.
I made a fruit scone round today for house history chappy but he couldn't stay so all the more for OH and me and some for the freezer. Yum yum. Haven't made fruit scone for over 20 years. Chappy tells me loads of big, mature trees were taken down by various storms form '72 onwards and was moretified to see what owners before us have done to his aunt's "jardin à la française". Only a tree peony and the wild rootstock of a persimmon left. He planted our walnut tree 30 years ago and tells us that the end of the plot where we are building the potager has several feet deep of very rich, fertile soil. Good.
Meanwhile, chappies turned up to bash the hole in the wall to our new shower room. I'd have thought exposing thing back to the insulation behind our plaster board interior wall would be a brilliant rain dance but no, the forecast for 47mm of rain overnight has changed to an uncertain 4mm on Friday night. Typical!
I hope everyone has a peaceful night, weather wise, health wise and worry wise.
