Some Weekend Scenes...

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend and are ready for another week! I enjoyed my few days and some lovely fine weather also! We kicked off Friday with Conor's birthday. Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Friday post!! The cake was fine, although if I try it again I would make the sponge part heavier and darker! I think my cocoa was a bit light! Everyone ate it anyhow, so it must have tasted ok:)





 On Saturday I took advantage of some lovely weather  and had a walk with Sarah around the lake near our home. Here are a few pictures we took along the way...












It was a lovely walk, delighted to have such great weather at  this stage of winter, considering this lake was frozen solid in January last year!

 I hope you all have a good week!
