We baked Chocolate biscuits

This was a Nigella recipe that was ridiculously simple.  Turned out so well!

I received two books for my birthday which is the best type of gift.
Happy reading days ahead!

Dreaming of balmy warm weather and this decadent cappuccino right by the beach.

Tea drinking

I have flu this week and I have gone off coffee (hopefully it won't last) so its lots of ginger and lemon tea and chamomile tea...

The holiday garden

I am remembering all the lovely fruit and vegetables that we had on holiday... from the fertile ground around us.

My daily breakfast included a bowl of summer fruit.

Our rustic retreat

This is where we hung out for a bit... it was too wonderful.  
All our vegetables came from the garden and virtually every view was the garden and the sea.

This is my uncle filling up from the spring water on our property.

The wooded area was my favourite.
And there is a little cave there too!
