Friday being the day I stop for a moment to reflect on the things for which I am grateful.
Darling family dog.
Darling wedge-shaped family dog,
here seen at the top of the stairs in favourite guarding position.
We are being guarded by a deaf, mostly blind elderly family dog.
Thank you, darling girl.
They're just milk chocolate but they kinda look like a Rolo.
So easy to eat (secretly, he he) and also easier to limit yourself to one or two rather than stuffing a whole bar.
I've just made some chocolate muffins, and I popped a Choco in the middle of each one for a gooey chocolate centre.
I found the recipe for the Lemon Crunch Drizzle Cake.
DD Hope and I have made a couple now and we have been perfecting the crunch part of it.
It is so delicious.....
Now this isn't my photo but it looked just like this (I must photograph it quicker next time - I turned my back and it was eaten!), I nabbed it from
which is where I found the recipe.
I've used even more sugar and lemon juice on the top for the crunchy drizzle.
DS Luke is in love.
I can't say too much but it's so lovely to see
him walking on air.
We have yet to meet the young lady of his dreams.........
We had a super day out yesterday when we went to Cranbrook.
We had a wander around and a bit of lunch in the sunshine, which was lovely.
I've been suffering with a monster headache for a couple of days, and he has been so sweet trying to keep me from doing anything more than I absolutely have to.
I wanted to show you a nice photo of Grant
and I love this one of him.
But the photo always makes me laugh.
It was taken a couple of years ago on the lake at Hever. There's DD Hope and DH Grant smiling for the camera, and then in the middle...........
Luke always pulls stupid faces when the camera comes out, so it serves him right that I'm now sharing this one with you!
It's also fairly typical that he's the only one not doing any of the work (apart from his mother who is screaming that she is going to drown and so has to hold on with both hands!)
I'd better go and sort out some lunch now.
Grant and I are going to do some lopping and tidying in the garden this afternoon and it looks like it might rain so we'd better get on with it.
You know the set up by now,
I'll pop over to Virginia to link this post with her Rocking Friday post and then later I'll be visiting the other Rockers to see what's been good about their week.
Have a lovely weekend.
