The sun shone all day. Those in the UK will know where this is going. Since March the rain in the UK has been relentless. It has been the wettest year I have ever known in my 38. But not yesterday. Yesterday the sun shone and I was so very grateful.
Monday in the schedule is a ‘down day’. A day to catch up after the weekend.

Inspired by the sun, I chose raspberries as my flavour for the cupcakes.
Sticky-Bottomed Raspberry Cupcakes
4 were eaten, 4 were saved for another day and 4 were donated to neighbours.

It’s going well!
How are your holidays going? Are there any other late additions to the schedule I should be considering?
p.s impulse purchased this last weekend! #nowthatsoptimistic
