Our buses are teaching us Cornish phrases!
Our Allotment community is really lovely to be a part of and their generosity remarkable. I went down to collect a few Mange Touts for dinner and was given some Strawberries and beautiful freshly podded peas. What a colourful collection.
Daughter No 1 is with us this weekend and we are celebrating her birthday which was in March! Confit duck with fresh allotment veg and Cornish potatoes from our local greengrocer and a Blueberry and Strawberry Pavlova. It’s 8 months since we were able to be together so this meal has been a celebration of that as well as her missing birthday.

Several of those strawberries are heart-shaped. Perfect!

That pavlova would be perfect for our 4th of July celebration today!

Nice to be with family once more. My sister flies to the UK from France to see mum and dad next week – lucky duck – but we might all do the Skype thing, which will be nice.
Love that Pavlova. Now I’m ”hungry” for desert. I wonder if there’s a spare cake in the pantry?

I’m glad your sister can visit your folks. Will she have to self isolate once she. arrives? I hope not. I’m loving Pavlova too, hadn’t made one for years until a couple of years ago and had forgotten how easy (and spectacular) they are! Hope you all get to Skype. Sending love. 🙂

I didn’t think to ask Mum about isolation when we chatted the other day. I will though when we chat again this week.
I think we will all Skype, but it will be via WhatsApp. (I forgot the term when I wrote my first comment – I may be going doolally! ) Pay me no mind.

Great to be together even after the birthday! Enjoy!

Thank you. It has been a lovely weekend. We hadn’t been together since October 2020.

Thank you. It was so good to have M here for the weekend, such a treat after far too long. The next visit shouldn’t be too far away. Take care xxx
