Happy Monday everyone. How are you and how was the start of your week?

Last week we were hitting between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius here in Scotland. The sun was splitting the pavements as we like to say, but now we're back to more familiar Scottish weather for May. Yup! It's raining and a little chilly.

I'm sitting in my conservatory typing this up. We just have a wee house so our conservatory which leads out from the kitchen and overlooks the garden is our dining room. 

It's my favourite room in the house at the moment. In the winter it can be a bit chilly unless the door to the main house is open all day with the heating on, so it becomes a bit of a clothes drying area and is less used for dining. 

It's now had a spring clean and we've replaced our dining table (the old one was too big) and hung floral bunting and fairy lights around the windows. It's looking very bonnie indeed. I'm sitting in the glow of the pink fairy lights listening to the pitter patter of the rain, but enough of all that. You'll be expecting some new recipes to tempt you for the week ahead and I aim to please.
