What a ::
It started off well with a spot of sunshine streaming through the windows first thing on Saturday morning. The cat finding the best place in the house to optimise and stretch out, enjoying the warmth.
But what was promising soon turned into wet, wild and windy with 'flipping heck' bitter thrown in for good measure. Though no snow here, not this time round.
So instead of painting fences, attending to seedlings, clearing out a shed.........!
Soon became huddling up in front of the fire - the very same spot the kitty cat had acquired earlier that day to - making (and eating) comfort food with a twist.
Flapjacks were transformed into caramelitas, brownies into a gooey pudding and soda bread made up into fresh leek, sage (both from the allotment) and cheddar cheese bread from a cookbook my lovely hubby had bought me for Christmas.
And talking of my lovely hubby, we celebrated another anniversary - seventeen years 'phew' who'd of known - and a foggy day trip out over to Margate to see the newest exhibition at the Turner Centre with hot chocolate and chit chat for afters.........no kiddies!
Today is no change - in the weather that is - and we are battening down the hatches and huddling up in the warmth, listening to the wind howling and tucking into comfort food leftovers of the weekend just passed.
I hope you had a lovely weekend too?

ps...and this is why we do not venture down to the beach at this time of the year. Tis not for the faint hearted, but the adventurers in us - it is pretty bleak and miserable!...
