I made my puddings on Saturday this year as I was busy all day on Sunday, singing at Peter's church for their Patronal Festival of Christ the King, and then later playing in Vivaldi's Gloria at All Saints Putney for Alison's choir. A lovely day of music-making, and also lovely food - a shared lunch at Christ Church, and high tea with Catherine in Putney.

They have had 6 hours steaming, just need a couple more on the day. One for us, one for Mummie, one for Breda.
It was our annual Take your Teddy to School Day yesterday, to raise money for Children in Need. I was going to a Conference at Brunel University, so Teddy Axtell came with me. He offered his vast knowledge and experience, which was greatly appreciated, and he enjoyed the buffet lunch.
My trip to Lille was rewarded with these lovelies, in the deliciously named 'Ding Fring' for 1 euro 50 all in!
These very typical bowls (bargain for 1 euro 50 each in Monoprix) complement these gorgeous tins I bought recently from Happy Loves Rosie's shop. She got them in Lille as well. Check out her beautifully bright and cheerful blog here: http://www.happylovesrosie.co.uk
