Munchkins (briefly) playing nicely in gorgeous Lucca.
Villa/pool day today. The littlest one seems to get completely overwhelmed with new places and experiences; and to be honest the bigger ones couldnt really care less where they are so long as theres the promise of an ice lolly on the horizon!

Ts smelly cycling kit shelf in the boiler cupboard is now my bread-proving shelf. To compensate him Im made him homemade pizza. I switched some of the flour & water in the recipe for my sourdough starter and was so pleased with the result! Got to get some tastebud training in for our trip to Italy in June

A little #midweekcakelove starring the free from Lemon & Elderflower cake I made for last weekends festivities. Adapted from a recipe by @beesbakery - the mix made more than double what was needed so its 3 super high tiers (plus extra in the freezer!) but otherwise a keeper
