Well folks my boyfriend has gone off on a Dirty Weekend…………without Me! Ok he is actually mountain biking in deepest darkest Wales with the boys.This involves lots of falling off into muddy ravines etc , whil’st trying to get ‘Air’. I say ‘boys’ though they are all in their late 30’s and some ( no names mentioned ! ) are 43. I guess it keeps them out of mischief. 😉
So here I am Home Alone for a whole weekend. Ok i’m not strictly alone, I do have a certain black labrador for company. He mostly just sleeps and eats , dear old man. Friday eve I happened to mention the word ‘baking’ though and he suddenly sprung to life before I could tie my Cath Kidston Apron strings. 🙂
So here is my attempt at making Mars Bar Crispy Cake Tray Bake which the lovely Emma featured on her blog High Heels And Pink Glitter.
The results will be taken to the Zoo today ( not to share with with the monkeys Honest) and of course I’ve left a couple for when the wanderer returns. They do look a bit tempting though……………..
So the blogosphere inspired me to bake this wknd ( well easy peazy baking anyhow 🙂 ) and i’ve also been following the progress of an Alphabet Dating challenge over on the fabulous blog Wrapped Up In Rainbows. Have you heard of Alphabet Dating? Laura who writes the blog and her other half Chris are busy working their way though the alphabet on their days out together.For example their first alphabet date was the letter A so they went out on an Animal inspired date. And their B date involved Beer and Bulls Icecream! It sounds great fun and I have already suggested it to Wil. I think when you have been together a while ( 8 years! )you can slide into doing the same old ,same old ,dvd date night
or aft in the local pub. Alphabet Dating should get us out of our comfort zone and doing new things. What do you think? Why not give it a go too. 🙂 Hopefully October may be the month to start! <3<3
