Somewhere very special to me is Rye in East Sussex (UK). I used to live a short drive away from here and sometimes go back for a wander. I was there again recently. It’s a historical town, it was even mentioned in The Doomsday Book. I used to visit with my grandparents. Thursday was market day, if memory serves me right, and there was livestock for sale, sheep I think, possibly chickens, as well as fruit and vegetables. We used to have treat at Simon the Piemans in Lion Street if we were lucky, a little cafe that sold the most delicious fudge – it’s still there – more than 30 years later. My sister used to drool whilst looking in the window! Unfortunately my camera failed me on my latest visit – so no photo of yummy fudge(!), however …
Also one of the quirky houses in Mermaid Street
We did stop for a treat whilst in Rye. I never miss a tea and biscuit break (well, in my case coffee as I don’t drink tea!). The Old Apothecary was our cake stop http://www.apothecaryrye.co.uk/ check out their website to see how it’s housed in an old chemist shop! The ‘treat’ inspired me a little, though I had homemade cake and not actual biscuits!
Crafting time: These are to add to my items for sale in a local cafe. For those who regularly follow my blog you may remember doughnuts a while ago. Same cafe, those doughnuts went down a treat! Let’s hope a few ‘traditional style’ biscuits go the same way.
And that’s a little crafting only, still managing to get a little done, rather than a lot, but a little can go a long way!
Bye for now. Happy Friday !
