Age and glasses of wine should never be counted!

It’s been a busy week this week we have been Baking Pies and Apple Crumble. We being me and my little helpers. One egg washed the top of the pies while the little  one made biscuits for daddy. She…little Lily always loves the left over pastry and it keeps her amused for a while. Cutting and rolling, cutting and rolling.

Aston does more grown up jobs like egg washing the pies and blitzing the crumble topping in the food processor.

        In a desperate bid to lose weight (I blame high Spanish living) Fatty’s had to ditch the Rioja 😦 Somehow The Fizzy Water Diaries doesn’t have quite the same ring to it….;)
