Some holiday snaps and a wee update

Park in Benalmadena
And some others
Happy soul
Ghost peoples

It was fun. Hopefully we'll be going to America next year, so I need to get my bum into gear and do some serious saving.
Not been upto all that much, it was my birthday last week so on the Friday Dave took me to Bath for the afternoon and we went to the spa and ate way too much in Wagamama. On the Saturday (my actual birthday) we just pottered a bit and went to see some bands in Bridgend. I got the Buffy boxset, the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook and a bottle of whiskey from Dave, a handbag with matching purse from my mum and sister and some money from family members. It was a nice day. I also went to the new knitting shop on Albany Rd (called Big Knitters) and bought some wool so I could make my Gryffindor scarf. It's coming along nicely so far, I'll try and post a picture of it later. Yesterday I went to the Ludlow food festival and came back with some yummy cheeses, pickled shallots, olives with feta and beef jerky flavoured with Naga chilli (the hottest chilli in the world). It almost blew my head off! I went with my nan and auntie and we had a little picnic on the way up with some of the 'black bottomed cupcakes' I made using the cookbook. They went down quite well and my auntie and nan renamed them 'wide bottom cupcakes' because that is what will happen if someone eats too many! They were very tasty though, sort of a brownie type dense sponge with a blob of cheesecake baked into it. I'm going to make another lot today and some banana and cinnamon muffins (I think) and take a few into work tomorrow. They like to try my baking :)
