Plink Plink Fizz

It's 6pm on a Friday. If you haven't got a large gin and tonic in your hand (other beverages are available), you're doing Friday wrong. Fact.

The Hendricks, Tanqueray and Edinburgh gins were all gifts. People who give me gin are kind of my favourites. Just saying. The amazing 'gin and titonic' ice cubes were a gift from the lovely Hayley.

Happy weekend, everyone!

A Very British Afternoon

Afternoon tea, that is.

If I said that the last three weeks had been frustrating, confusing, difficult and life-changing, then it would probably be an understatement. I can sum it up quite simply really. An injured boyfriend = no Afghanistan = the next year of plans gone. But such is life. And what better way to mark the end of 12 wonderful days of soldier-time than with sandwiches with the crusts cut off, cups of tea and homemade scones and lemon drizzle cake?

Scones made using this recipe, with the addition of cherries.
Lemon drizzle made using this recipe, recommended by the lovely Amy.
