I've had a busy weekend. My sister, Steph came to visit with her two small children. We met up with our other sister, Lindsey, for an evening of gossip and laughs. We went to Bramhall Hall, Macclesfield and The Trafford Centre. We baked four batches of scones (two of cheese and two of fruit), a carrot cake and a brandy-and-coffee-gateau. And we spent hours on the allotment clearing weeds and planting petits poi and manges-tout, and getting quite badly sunburned.
Note to self - remember sunscreen.
When she left I took the gateau to a piano recital organised by my choir, St George's Singers. It was heavenly to sit with friends on a glorious June afternoon, listening to a fabulous programme of piano music played by four superb soloists, with church bells and birdsong in the background. The wine and home-made cakes in the interval were very pleasant as well.
I hope you all had a good weekend, too.
