This week's Thursday Theme is unexpectedly apt, because our house is more than usually full of baked goods.
Bought by my in-laws who are staying this week, there is an array of cakes, tarts, doughnuts, biscuits and muffins around the kitchen and in the fridge and there are about 4 different kinds of bread wedged into the bread-bin.
Fortunately for my waist-line, they are not really the kinds of cakes, tarts, doughnuts, biscuits and bread to tempt me. Though I have enjoyed the odd muffin.
Just the odd one.
Oh and a bit of tiffin yesterday.
or maybe two bits....
oh alright, three.
Quite unrelatedly, here some photos of our autumn which has been, on the whole, brightly blue and full of crunchy sunshine.
Oh and as I typed that an extraordinarily large bumble bee was tapping at the window right next to me. Winter seems a long long way off, despite the falling leaves.
In fact, the Autumn theme and the baked goods theme may not be entirely unrelated after all. I do tend to feel more than ordinarily inclined to make cakes in the autumn.
I haven't acted on this inclination yet.
