Finally a cool night last night where sleep was easy and comfortable!! We have had quite a few HOT nights in between the sheets of late. And that would be because of the temperature you dirty minded blog readers!!! Anyway back to the cooler over night temp, that was still lovely and cool this morning, but rapidly turned into a stunning clear blue cloudless day complete with one of these going over our house.
I love hot air balloons, not enough to go up in one but I do love how they just float silently above us all down below with our cameras focusing on them as they pass by. I guess the annual Balloon Festival must be coming in the next couple of months.
I love this old photo of my boys when they were little lads. We used to live across the road from a park that Balloons would land in. Max my eldest loved them and Jak was basically shit scared of them. Always a dilemma for me that one, there was a lot of compromise involved in keeping both boys happy. Pleased to report that there were no tantrums from any of us!!
Today has been a lovely laid back one with a shopping trip with my eldest to choose a lap top for him for his birthday. A haircut for me, so I am looking presentable again, and then a whole lot of chilling out enjoying another beautiful day.
This evening after dinner I got busy with my "oooops sorry I cocked up your pay" baking.
They are supposed to be Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins but due to a lack of chocolate chips in the cupboard they are Banana Walnut Muffins!!
And they are scrum-diddle-umpshish!!!
I made twenty of the suckers as TOF would be none pleased if there wasn't any in his lunch box tomorrow. They are currently cooling on the bench under cover but the smell is driving me nuts, I could easily devour a couple of them.
