 I made chocolate chip banana bread in fairy cake format - sadly the texture was a bit strange (far too dense) but my cute pastel silicon cake cases work a treat.

I walk past this almost every day, it's nice to see so much green. If you have an area (sunken courtyard) then you really should do this with it.

Eton Mess, at a rather nice pub near Henley for the boy's Dad's birthday. We went for a little walk by the Thames then sat in the garden drinking wine - lovely! (it also helps that his family are quite possibly the nicest people ever)

Stained glass in Bristol's St Mary Redcliff church.
Adam & I escaped from the crowds of the Harbour Festival, had a sly half at The Golden Guinea, then took in the rather lovely interior of St Mary Redcliff.

 Yes, those are Christmas lights. It was the 2nd of August. Shame on you, Clifton Down Shopping Centre.

A very sleepy kitteh I met on the way over to Gloucester Road for curry  He/she opened his/her eyes, looked at me, then went back to sleep.
For pre-curry drinks we went to the excitingly painted Prince Of Wales pub: unpainted in 2007, mural-ed in 2008, now. I was pleasantly surprised - it was more airy than expected and had a good selection of ciders, including Broadoak Perry which I haven't seen on tap anywhere else.

Happy Saturday to anyone who may be reading this :)
