Four Good Things

Coconut and lime cake. I made this today while Miss M had a friend over to play, it was such a simple recipe but turned out well - my favourite kind of bake! The recipe can be found here...

A pretty serving plate, bought in the local Shelter shop last week...

Sweet peas growing in a pot on the patio. My mum and dad started these off for me (I am no gardener) and I am so enjoying them. I especially love having a little posy of them on my bedside table, they smell so lovely...

Enjoying a cup of tea and some crochet in the glorious sunshine we have had...

Hope everyone is having an enjoyable week? We have been busy with lots of play dates and visits to the park and pretty much just enjoying the lovely weather!

Back very soon with a little finished make...

  7. One of my favourite cakes to make is a coconut and lime but the recipe I use also has glace ginger in it. My tummy is rumbling just thinking about it! Lovely plate too - people give away such treasures but thank goodness they do so that we can rehome them. x

  9. Oh my what a mouth watering cake, I'm drooling just looking at the picture. Your sweet peas look stunning in the vase. And your crochet, the colours are fabulous, can I ask what they are.
    Can't wait to see the finished result.

  11. Play dates and dates at the park are a perfect way to spend the summer, children grow up so fast, enjoy this time.
