So I thought this morning I'd share a few photos from the week just gone. Enjoy :)
My parents and I did a little day trip out here on Monday.
I even convinced my Dad to go on the beach carousel with me!
Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla and coconut icing.
I hosted my monthly bookclub (also known as cheese and wine club)
on Thursday night and baked these sweet cupcakes to share.
Another snap from our day trip.
We watched the sun go down from sun chairs along the pier.
The English seaside and Fish & Chips.
A perfect combo.
Did I mention a visit to Brighton Beach?
Although my parents have visited London a few times now,
they had never been to Regents park.
We remedied that last weekend and had a picnic.
It was my Dad's birthday last Saturday.
So I got my bake on and baked a classic English Victoria Sponge,
filled with berries, jam and whipped cream.
I've been pounding the pavements quite a lot recently.
In fact I run to work most mornings as it's the only spare time I have to fit in exercise.
So I decided to treat myself to some lovely new runners.
And yes, I baked one more time.
A little lime and ginger slice.
Sweet and tangy.
This week's been like my own Great British Bake Off.
I'm currently in Spain this weekend - in Seville at the yearly Flamenco Festival - so will tell you all about it next week!
