Cream Tea

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz and cake

I always have great difficulty keeping awake in July. It's not all that hot at the moment, and there has been rain, so everything this morning was dewy and cool, and the valley was full of mist. And yet I would very much like to curl up and go to sleep for about a week. I had to give up on Friday and just go back to bed because I couldn't keep my eyes open.

But today, among other things, I have made a cake. I think it's a little bit rich : too many eggs and butter. It's a traditional Victoria Sponge, and I now recall that I tend to find Victoria Sponge a bit too much. But a small slice is pretty good.

This week we ended up going on a Tamar Valley Tourism Association outing.  The idea of these is really that people who run accommodation go out to local attractions and see what is available locally so they can recommend it to guests.  We don't have any guests, but we kind of fancied a boat trip anyway, and we are Tamar Valley Tourism members, so we labelled it 'networking' and went to Plymouth.
