I had a really lovely weekend, even though it didn't quite go to plan. Sometimes that is a good thing. I am a planner and very rarely do things on the spur of the moment. I had planned to visit a couple of local wedding Fayre's yesterday but due to the snow thought it would be pointless going as it would either be cancelled and a waste of my journey through the country lanes or some of the exhibitors wouldn't turn up so still a waste of a journey. So instead I spent Saturday afternoon making Rocky Road (my own slightly different version to how I think it is supposed to be made) James Mum had some Granola she was going to throw. The thrifty person inside me jumped at the chance for using them in a bit of creativity in the kitchen. After having a rummage through the cupboard of all my baking ingredients I came up with a lot of baking chocolate and sent James out to buy some Maltesers and marshmallows.
What a treat, it was delicious. We spent Saturday evening in our PJ's wrapped in a blanket and watched Miss Potter. I loved it and surprisingly so did James. It brought back many memories of the Lake District and we have decided we would like to go back there again. I love the story about Beatrix Potter and feel she is a credit to any female author. She was such an inspirational person and it is lovely how she will live on forever more through her work and creativity. If you haven't seen the film yet, I would highly recommend it. It goes down well with a bit of rocky road too : ) especially as the snow is falling pretty hard outside the window.
Instead of the wedding Fayre's Sunday we visited some friends, played in the snow and had a lovely beef casserole for dinner mmmm. Not quite what we had planned but it was perfect.
How was your weekend?
