Like cheese? Try this! I had a bit of time on my hands last week so thought I would have a slow browse around my local M & S food store rather than the usual mad dash in for milk and bananas. This is what I spotted and my goodness, its delicious! Just as it is, on a cracker - perfect! It didn't last very long and will probably feature on the mad dash list in the future.
On Sunday I went to the Country Living Spring Fair in Islington. I've read that a fair few bloggers had visited. I have to admit to being slightly disappointed. I thought there would be more outdoorsy stuff; chickeny stuff, maybe. Although I did buy these nice little books on the Country Living stand.
There seemed to be an awful lot of jewellery. I came away hoping never again to see a gingham heart! Which is a shame, because I quite like a gingham heart... Oh well, at least I had the most delicious apricot and ricotta muffin (sorry, no photo - too tasty).
Just as we were making our way out we got stopped by a chap asking if we had a sugar lump on us! Making to walk off, he then completely caught our attention by promoting the WI and explaining that the hugely detailed flower that a lady was showing was made entirely from sugar! He was very entertaining and the ladies on the stand were good fun. I asked him how come he knew so much about the WI if they didn't allow men to join their groups and he said that he worked in their PR department. To cut a long story short, my friend and I have signed up and are waiting for the information about our local group to be sent out to us! I'll keep you posted...
I then had time for a wander up Essex Road to White Stuff - my favourite clothes shop, where I bought a couple of things for the spring. Then a quick cross through via Cross Street, and of course, Loop. I bought some beautifully soft alpaca yarns to crochet a skinny scarf.
It's as soft as butter through my fingers when I'm working - gorgeous!
