Escape to the Chateau
I might have cheated a bit with this blog post title. It’s nothing about baking in the kitchen at all though I do love a bit of baking when in the mood and I adore The Great British Bake Off, though preferred Mel, Sue and Mary to the newbies. (I hope readers know what I am talking about here – please ask if not.)
I am writing about the last few days of baking hot sunshine we’ve had in the UK. Wow, was it warm enough for everyone? At times it was a bit too hot for me though I am not complaining much, I could keep out of it when I needed to. It was a great excuse to sit indoors and sew one day – I will reveal the result of that day soon, though it’s a gift for someone who might read this so remains under wraps for now.
So, today the temperature has turned itself down a bit. The whole family is having a better day. We all had streaming eyes and noses with hayfever – even one of our cats suffered. (Hayfever-like symptoms in a cat, possibly some allergy to something in the air/garden.) It is a little respite from the past few days.
Whilst staying out of the sun, I also discovered a tv show about owning your own french castle (Escape to the Chateau DIY, Ch4), which builds on the original series Escape to the Chateau. I love trips to France, though not in the same league, one can dream big.
Dick and Angel Strawbridge make entertaining tv.
I wonder what anyone else did to stop being ‘baked’ last week?
