To help the day along.
Is there a better way to eat homemade strawberry jam than as part of a cream tea?
I think not! The scones were also homemade, the clotted cream from the supermarket (lack of dairy cow in the garden means I can’t make my own cream!).
I might have gone back for seconds – don’t judge me, it was just so tasty. And, and, and, (she says desperately trying to mitigate her greediness) when I was in Cornwall for a fortnight recently I only had 2 cream teas. Two in two weeks – that is not nearly enough so I had some catching up to do, didn’t I…?
We have a late night planned tonight – there is a Harry Potter themed event from 10.30pm in Bath Place, Taunton.
Bath Place is a lovely little alleyway off the main high street, with lots of quirky little shops and tonight it becomes Diagon Alley leading to Brendon Books (independent book seller) which is hosting a midnight Harry Potter party. Flo has just finished the third Harry Potter book and is about to start no.4 so we are all off there tonight and she is super excited. I am hoping the excitement will keep her going for it is not usual for her to be heading out for a party at 10.30pm! Nor is it usual for me – I have distant memories of such activities but that seems like another lifetime now and the parties I was heading to were not innocent Harry Potter parties!
I digress, so a late night and lots of wizarding fun … so tomorrow could be a lazy day.
I hope you are all having a good weekend.
