Happy Tuesday Everyone
The sun is shining here and #Lockdown continues. This is just to say that I hope you and your family are keeping well, staying safe and finding your way through this very difficult journey.
There are some amazing stories coming out of this crisis and our homegrown most wonderful news is that of Captain Tom Moore who celebrates his 100th birthday on 30th April and has raised over £27million to date for NHS charities, walking 100 laps of his garden. I’m sure you’ll have a tear in your eye when you watch and listen to ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone‘ with Captain Tom & Michael Ball. God bless you, Sir.
If you are reading during these days spent at home, I have a flash sale today. Hattie Goes to Hollywood is only 99p /$1.25 and you can download a copy here at Amazon:
I seem to be ‘comfort’ eating whilst stuck at home and if anyone fancies a very quick sweet treat that is so easy to make, grab these few ingredients and you’ll have a Swiss Roll on the table in no time.
2 eggs, 50g caster sugar, 50g self-raising flour*, 100g strawberry jam
Beat eggs & sugar until thick and pale. Fold in flour. Pour into tin 16x 28cm (greased & lined). Bake for 10 -12 mins. Turn out, spread jam, roll up. Eat & enjoy! *add 1 tsp baking powder if using plain flour
Wild garlic is still growing and makes the most wonderful pesto. If you want my recipe, drop me an email.
The glorious spring weather has enabled me to get out during our one allowed exercise period each day and I’ve dragged my old bike out of the garage and enjoyed some lovely rides on deserted roads and lanes. I hope that you too can enjoy a walk or find something new to do whilst restricted.
Take care, stay safe and look after each other.
