Scavenger Hunt Sunday...






Crikey, another week gone!  The most bizarre moment of my week was when Helen and I got lost in Abraxas Cookshop (we were actually looking for a clothes shop that we'd been in previously and where Helen had seen a top she wanted to buy), still it was a wonderful shop, and one that had a rather fab retro pink mixer in it that Helen was almost crying with longing for... (it was almost £400!).  

Anyway, high tales of exploration, adventure and kitchen-ware suppliers aside,  it's back to the Scavenger Hunt...


Draycote water Boats
Things that look like a letter of the alphabet...
Obviously this is an upside-down letter L!
(I was clasping at straws with this one...)

Weather over Draycote Water
Weather...
These two photos were taken at Draycote Water in Warwickshire
 (it's pronounced Draycott for reasons that escape me).
For some reason David and I thought it would be a good idea to walk
around the entire perimeter yesterday morning.

Bling!
Bling...
These aren't my blingiest earrings by far, in fact these are pretty subtle,
I usually like jewellery that makes a statement, but these were in the
sale at Wallis for £5 so what can you do?!?

Mrs Pod and the Wool
Tangled...
Mrs P sleeping amidst my wool.
Now that really can't be a good thing and
will probably end in tears...

Dark Chocolate Ginger Cake...
Dark...
Aha! Now what have we here?
This my friends is Dark Chocolate and Ginger Cake.
I made it for David yesterday.  I have no idea why as 
a) when we were at Draycote Water he took my camera off
me to take a picture of an aeroplane, 
thus causing me severe separation anxiety, and
b) he broke my mug with a quote and a picture 
of the three witches on it from Macbeth.
I'm trying to think of suitable compensation...

I had trouble with the letter, too. Love the snoozing kitty. Cute! Very nice post!

This was a challenging one! I love your take on the letter of the alphabet (and am partial to the letter L, of course), think your earrings are both wonderfully blingy as well as beautiful, and nearly broke my nose on my computer monitor trying to take a big bite out of that cake! Yummm.

Oh, and another bad thing David did to you lately? Upsetting you with falsehoods about the alleged dearth of savoury pies in the Colonies! Yep, he owes you big time.
