Four happy things from my week. As always joining in with Jen
I've been having a bit of a thing for Parmesan lately. It's something to do with making my own sauce with the last of the tomatoes in the greenhouse. A simple sauce, some basil and a liberal grating of Parmesan on top. Happy food.
Bake Off chez 'Today's Stuff'
So the boys do like to help with the baking, although these days I can guarantee arguments over mixing, measuring and scraping. So when we made our Sunshine Shorties, I let them do it. I watched two very different personalities shape their biscuits. Olly flung it on the baking tray, me, the floor..... Alfie took forever shaping his biscuits until they were all uniform and perfect. That's my Alfie. That's why we clash so much. A wry kind of happy.*
A few of my favourites from this summer. I couldn't believe the heart shaped piece of driftwood. It is exquisite. I love it.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love Paul Weller? I've been singing this to myself a lot this week. I heard it on the radio, and it kind of stuck in my head. The Modfather. Enjoy.
That's the happy.
Do any of you love a musician as much as I love Mr Weller? It's a big long time love.
*I include this as a happy. But it did turn to an unhappy angry Mum shouty fest not long after.
