Painting, Cookies and Wine

26 May

We are being decorated! Outside painting is okay now in these socially distancing times so here is a before picture.

When our lovely decorators, Colourgirlz, come to work for us, I always bake them a pile of cookies. This time I have made two batches of Choc Chip Cookies, one with with dark brown molasses sugar and dark chocolate chips – and raisins – and the second batch – with light soft brown sugar and white chocolate chips and raisins.

A glass of wine in the evening sunshine under the Crinodendron was just what we needed! The Sweet Pea wigwam is coming along well as is the Bay tree on the left.

      We often comment on how lucky we are – to have met each other early on, to have been brought up by such lovely people and to have been resilient in the face of some big events. xx

    Add bread and cheese (and music) to that title and you have the recipe for a fine, fine, fine life.
