Fruit cake, Beetroot chocolate cake and muesli

Not bad for a mornings work, with the obligatory homemade rolls as well 🙂


I know that beetroot chocolate cake sounds strange, but it is very moist and tasty, you can’t taste the beetroot!!!

New house….

Finally, after all the looking we have found something that Keith and I both like and think may actually suit the purpose….


It’s ok – I know what you are thinking, ‘it needs a lot of work’ and I guess more importantly … ‘where will you stay when you come over’  – it does have a granny annexe – we aren’t so kean, but I am sure that over time we would be able to get it how we want it….


Ok – you win, it is Chateau de Carrouges…. we quite like the gatehouse, but Keith’s mum persuaded us to go and have a look round the Chateau as well – definately worth a visit if you are over here.
