The Suitcase Singers, Bell Tower and Brandy Snaps

15 Nov

1   Fantastic singing this morning. It’s three years since Claire started this choir and we go from strength to  strength!  I needed a photo today to send to Spotlight Southwest for tomorrow night’s Children in Need show for which last week’s buns made £25 in the end. I told the choir that I’d already sent a photo of my buns and that I needed an up-to-date photo of the choir. The place fell apart and I realised what I had said! That’s an Americanism that is pretty new over here!

2   Driving through Ponsanooth, there were temporary traffic lights so I had the opportunity to take a photo of this very pretty bell tower – and with a bird on top!

3   We have friends coming to dinner tomorrow evening and I’ve spent the afternoon making Brandy Snaps to go with my Rhubarb and Ginger Fool.

      And very busy! Sorry I haven’t been around lately -what with the flood and then the gas leak, we seem to have men here all the time, assessing and looking at the problem, pulling up the carpet or digging up the drive! Today is the first quiet day since we came home from India! 🙂

    I love your picture of the tower – and I really hope that one day I will be able to take such good photographs. Photography is not something I am much good at, even although I do love admiring great photographs.

      Thank you for your kind comments. I’m learning as I go with my photographs and recently bought a new camera which helps make pleasing pictures! 🙂

    I have never even attempted brandy snaps so hard! So delicious 🙂

      You could make them! They really just need patience, they’re not that hard – just look as if they are! 🙂

    I had to google brandy snaps as I was ogling them. Look delicious.

      They are! Pity I can’t send you any but they wouldn’t snap by the time they reached you. They would have gone soggy. Brandy Soggies don’t really have the same ring! 🙂
