“All because two people fell in love…”

Lots of planning and perfection went into last nights party which was to celebrate my parents thirty years of marriage (what a milestone!) The weather was perfect, the lights were wonderful, food amazing and the guests were fabulous.

We couldn’t have asked for a better day – the only thing that would have finished it all off in the bestest way was if Grandad could have been there. However he had lots of visitors throughout the weekend which was more than we could ask for! (I just realised I don’t have a photo of my parents together on the evening – here’s a few lovely guests instead!

Cream tea was in abundance at three PM with a splash of Pimms available for those who wanted it too. The scones were amazing and there were so many!

The evening was great, a little chilly for August but the Fire Pits kept us warm and the lighting later on in the evening warmed the garden up slightly. The BBQ was amazing, thank goodness a caterer was brought in though because there were many hungry mouths to feed and lots of prep to do! The tidying up…..not so fun ;)

My parents didn’t want gifts and asked that anyone who wanted to, put a donation in the tin for Alzheimers UK and a charity walk that my sister is doing. We raised over £200…. amazing, incredibly generosity from everybody involved so thank you for that as well! If you would like to donate please visit this page.

And bless our little Maisy who didn’t last the evening, choosing to curl up inside on the sofa by herself…

“Bake with love..”
― Manuela Kjeilen

My sister and I were treated to a day with our Mum at River Cottage today (you know, the place where the River Cottage cooking series is filmed) learning how to bake cakes and desserts! So we began an early morning trek down to Devon enjoying the absolutely breath-taking scenery on the way there…

Once there the views got even better. I’ve never been to Devon before and it’s only a couple of hours down the road… so I’ll be revisiting sometime very soon with my ‘proper’ camera.

Everything about the day from start to finish was perfectly organised and amazing. Photographs were encouraged, wandering around and looking at things was encouraged and we even got to glimpse inside the cottage where they usually do the filming…

We were plied with home-made goods in between tasting our own, drinking cordial, tea and coffee. We made muffins, loaf cake, profiteroles and chocolate tart (from scratch!)

At lunchtime we were served delicious home-made steak pie, mashed potatoe and carrots. And if that wasn’t enough we had tasters afterwards of some of the things we’d been baking.

The best bit was the view. What an inspiring view.. all day we had this gorgeous landscape to look out onto as we baked…
