Busy Weekend

Compared to our usual weekends,
this last one was busy.

For different reasons
we had visitors,
a young couple who have recently moved over here from the States,
and later another couple from Luxemburg.
It was the couple from Luxemburg that brought us the cake pictured above.
A nice gesture we thought.
His family own a Boulangerie.
Perhaps if I'd known that I wouldn't have offered them my own fruit cake,
but apparently they liked it.
The cake they brought is almond flavoured
and is cut horizontally.
It tasted really nice.

That evening, we went to a concert.
It was a local affair involving some friends of ours.
The concert was in aid of Mali.

Tomorrow, I fly over to the UK.
I am spending some time in the north east of England before travelling west to Cumbria.
I'm taking the camera, so I hope it won't rain all the time-
it usually does.
So, I will be away from the computer for a while.
But I should have some photos to share with you
on my return.
