Well today Mr F was very busy with new bedroom cupboards and man-stuff, so I planned a little jaunt over to Needham Market to my favourite shop, Halfpenny Home. I always get a little bit excited when I go over there and I'm like a child in a sweet shop when I look at all the wonderful goodies there are on display.....
.....and today I wasn't disappointed, especially when Harriet was there too - "Hi Harriet" - anyway, I can't show you a piccie of what I bought as some of it is being posted off for a belated birthday present (I hadn't forgotten you Eva ), so you'll have to make do with a piccie of Nic and Harriet and this GORGEOUS wool. Oh and Nic had baked the most scrummy Rhubarb and Raspberry tart which I had a little of - sorry no piccies of that....
.....after we'd chatted and shopped and had a cup of tea and chatted a bit more and oohed and ahhhed over the wool, we headed off to our favourite place for lunch, Alder Farm Barn Cafe.....
.....on the specials board today was Garlic and Ginger Tiger Prawns with Butterd Linguine and Homemade Olive Bread.....
.....as you can see from my empty plate, this was horrid and I didn't enjoy it at all ;).....
....and after a little rest while we chatted over a couple of pots of tea, and browsed through the latest Mollie Makes magazine, we had pudding - Nic went for the Ginger and Orange Cheesecake, while I plumped for dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Terrine with Raspberry Coulis and Cream - it was soooo delicious!! I had a great time today with Nic - now I wonder what will be on the menu the next time we meet?
