Banana bread and rolling waves.
Well January whizzed by and now we are almost at the end of February! The weather has been terrible here in the UK these past few weeks, torrential rain has meant lots of villages and towns have been flooded, railway lines have been destroyed and we have lost large swathes of the British coastline to the sea. Poor Cornwall and Somerset seemed to have taken the brunt of it all.
Kent didn't fair too badly, we had no flooding at all in our town just storm damage, missing tiles and damaged fences.
Our right hand fence to our back garden seems to be on its last legs but as we are due soon to have a new neighbor we are holding on to replace it as it is technically their fence (so we are waiting patiently).
Winter Olympics has started! How exciting, i just love the ice skaters and their funny faces they pull, check out this link it had me laughing for hours!
Last weekend we ventured out on the one clear day we have had in weeks to the seaside, Dungeness to be exact, for my dads birthday. It was such a beautiful day and so lovely to get out and about and blow away some of those cobwebs.
I just love Dungeness, so inspiring, i braved the gales and took a lonely walk around the huts in Dungeness village to wear of my fish and chips. Some of the huts date back to as far as 1800, and people live in them all year round with the eerie looking power station in the background.
The cake in the pics above was a banana bread, i was home alone just me and Ernie as Ashley was working on a Sunday so i decided to use up the last few mouldy looking bananas and bake a cake at the same time as cooking a roast, Get me! I'm the new Nigella :) (minus the cocaine of course!), it was gorgeous and only took me 50 mins to bake! who needs a cafe when you have hot banana bread and a Dolce Gusto latte to hand and the comfort of your own settee :)
