A Scottish Summer's Day

I spoke too soon. It has rained for two days straight. Non-stop.

So, I've done a bit of baking. Oreo cookies, rhubarb and strawberry crumble, banana and chocolate chip loaf and the Best Blueberry Muffins You'll Ever Have. (We have had visitors...an excuse I am sticking to!)




These really are the best blueberry muffins. Maybe a little bit fussier than other muffins, but they turned out perfectly. I followed this blueberry crumb muffin recipe exactly.

I am quite happy curling up on the sofa, still reading the supplements from the weekend papers...but I would really like it to stop raining tomorrow, as I am being a tour guide for a couple of days and would quite like to see more than 3 metres in front of my face.

    But never mind, I'll bake muffins instead. Ta for that. x
