It’s a grey day for staying in.

We have had rain nearly all day here in Kidlington which turned to snow this evening. Anyway we didn’t let such things spoil our day did we? Bottle made a loaf and I made some of that famous boat cake that Lynne on narrow boat Piston Broke had written out for me.

Maffi called in for coffee and kindly offered to take us down by car to Sainsbury’s to stock up the empty cupboards. He then came round for tea and had to sample the boat cake, 2wice! They have both gone up the pub for a couple of pints while I have Speckled Hen and  Sainsbury’s excellent square shaped crisps here with the squirrel! Rainy days are excellent for making cakes by and it also makes the boat extra warm, luvly jubbly.
