Today's prompt is Surprise and what better surprise than birthday presents when you are little?
This is actually a bittersweet prompt today because these are presents for Rosie who will be two at the end of next week. But because of the new lockdown restrictions, she will be the first member of our family who won't be able to celebrate with friends and family popping in to see her 😓
To be honest, I think that's a more upsetting thought for us adults than it is for her because there will be presents, there will be cake and there will be balloons and when you are two, that's all the important bases covered! We can pop round to their house and see her from the door step so we will have to be content with that and then have a family tea together when lockdown is over.
PS Daily Update - We had a small venture out to a new grocery farm shop yesterday as I had heard a rumour that they would be selling my favourite ice cream! It's made by a small independent company in Saffron Walden and you can't buy it in many shops outside of SW. Their products are delicious! A spoonful of their sherbet lemon sorbet on top of your ice in a gin and tonic raises it to another level 😋 and their salted butter caramel is a delight. The shop is in a beautifully converted barn and specialises in more independent brands rather than the food you can buy in any supermarket. They also stocked meats from a local farm and there was no way I was returning home without a pack of Priors Hall Farm Sausages in my bag. That was lunch sorted! If you too are a sausage sandwich lover, which are you - a red sauce girl or a brown sauce girl? Or maybe no sauce at all?
