No real theme
We wanted to try out the Jam session at Swing Maniacs as we need to practise now rather than just learn more steps. It was lovely to have falafel and hummus and pitta bread - the sort of food that feels like a real treat here. And then a quick dance before catching the last train home.
I met Tiffany for coffee one morning - but it wasn't coffee - it was the Catalan chocolate drink that is rich and thick and warm like a pudding and comes with whipped cream and little sponge fingers for dunking. If you want to order it is called a Xocolata Desfeta and if you want the cream it is a Suìs
Don't go to that link if you are on a diet!
So when he had to start another song he looked at me and said 'Danny Boy?' Of course I sat down on the bench to listen - and cried a little for the strangeness of it
And lastly we took our seed potatoes over to the farm where a new friend has offered us a space to plant them. I brought over Pentland Javelin and Charlotte and am looking forward to real potatoes this summer! Bonnie loved being in the countryside again and I have promised her 'Soon!'
I totally understand if you don't leave me any comments this week - so don't feel obliged!
