I started this post at the weekend but then life took over and I didn't get it finished!
Since I already had the photos in position I thought I would go ahead and finish it off anyway.
So, these are a few of the things I was loving last week.
My mum was down with us for a week. Whenever she comes down she brings my brother and I a wee food parcel of things that we can't buy down here!
My absolute favourite is this hot smoked salmon. It has a beautiful peat smoke flavour but the texture is of cooked salmon rather than the slightly slimy texture of traditionally smoked salmon.
The boys like going out for treats with granny when she is here. Plenty of coffee shop stops! This was David enjoying the last one before we took her to the plane home.
Another of our coffee shop stops was to our favourite garden centre, where Alasdair loves to go and see the fishies.
The weather last week went from heavy snow.....
....to almost Spring like a few days later!
It was great for the boys to get outside to play again after months indoors.
The snowy weather does give an excuse for comforting puddings though, like this bread and butter pudding madewith left over custard doughnuts!
James (13) was also doing a spot of baking last week. These triple chocolate muffins were quite delicious.
Finally, loving 'just because' presents from my beloved. A Lindt milk chocolate bunny is my most favourite Easter treat!
