A Brief Interlude.
The rain stopped for a brief moment and bakingly hot sun replaced it - for a while. A chance to splash through rock pools with the two Bellas who both are at their best when outdoors and wet.
Just one more stone...please...
The light was beautiful and so needed after all the dismal rain filled drab of the past few days.
Shells and pebbles and salt washed stones lay tangled with ribboned seaweed.
Some preferred to enjoy the sun by lying on Lucy's newly-washed quilt. Hmm, not sure I made it with the cat in mind.
Isabella continued the watery play on our return helping with the cooking in the process, but mostly sloshing copius amounts of water...everywhere.
The tart - funny word isn't it? - was delicious though I say so myself. Definitely one I will make again if I can remember what was in it: caramelised onion, red cabbage and spinach with toasted hazlenuts and a cheese and breadcrumb topping was what I had to hand, but anything would probably do.
But the last two days have been all about the rain. Wet walks with child and dog, wet trips out to feed livestock, wet trips to the school. Oh joy. Hope the sun pops back soon so that I can get outside to enjoy the lovely flowers trying so hard to hold their heads up in the deluge.
Maybe tomorrow. Have a lovely day x
