Recipe from the lovely Constanca Cabral. It’s super easy to make and really delicious.
I know I’m not the only one that has taken up baking… it fills the time right? it keeps the mind occupied and away from the news.
How are you all coping? Are you worried? scared? sanguine about the current situation? To quote one of my favourite poets, Robert Frost…
in three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on
No 1 son is at home, watching his plans of round the world trips scampered (bar a miracle) and has taken it really well… much better than me frankly, three trips cancelled and counting… at least we got to go skiing for a few days, right? Sons No 2 and 3, are wondering whey they’re the only children in the world who are still going to school, whilst all their hockey matches have been cancelled. I’d like to know that too.
Someone keeps spelling rude words with the magnetic letters on the fridge… to be honest it could the husband… a puerile relief from all the work worries, it’s not easy to make a living at the moment.
My parents are getting used at their forced ’12 weeks house bounds status’ and are moved by the message of kindness received from many neighbours. Mum has bought an exercise bikes and plans to put in in the green house… a sort of home made peloton… dad is busy in his shed restoring our outdoor table and chairs.
We watched ROMA the other night. A bit late to the party as usual, but what a gorgeous movie. Not at all what I expected, but was pleasantly surprised and totally loved it. Have you seen it?
