Egad, my i-phone is a bad bad thing.
I took a photo of these 2 books whilst on holiday and browsing a Book Shop.
Then, on an evening lying in my bed, i found these photos and had placed my order on Amazon before you could say: "stop it you crazed bedded down i-phone shopping NutJob"
But by Golly they are Jolly!!
And then there is this self-delusional element that makes us feel....
that when they arrive in the post - they have somehow been GIFTED to us by Amazon themselves.
We conveniently forget that we did, in fact, pay for these books.
Sigh - pretty pages.
The DK Preserves Book is especially great and i am just putting in my shopping order (online of course) to make up some Kilner Jars of Potted Peppers, some Elderberry Cordial and Fig Jam.
I usually shop online but i am especially shopping online forever more as i bought a new car last week and have a morbid mistrust of OTHER DRIVERS in any Car Park!!
In the meanwhile - Plum Tray Bake Cake!
Made from the Plums down at my Brother's house.
Now Lord, would it be too much to ask, to send me a big burly man with a love of sport and the healthy appetite that might appreciate Sweet Honey Plum cake?
Yes, his amazing sporty physique would be a bonus, But truly he would be doing me a great service (!) if he were to come and help me eat cake and the such.
Bon Plums x
