When everyone is so busy it can be all to easy to pass ‘like ships’ post childcare arrangements, but today we’ve had a wonderful day spending time with Granny Mook & Lulu for Mother’s Day.
We started the day, bright and early, at The Big Cake Show in Westpoint, Exeter. There were some fabulous stands from local producers, and an event like this is a great way to meet small artisan producers of innovative and creative local food and drink. I came away with some fantastically priced vintage teacups, a jug and sugar bowl – all perfect for Granny M&L’s afternoon tea. I would also recommend a visit to The Big Cake Show for the competition cakes alone – themed for the South West. Amazing!
We then popped down the road to see the other creative half of Mookandlulusblog.com, Claire, at her friends farm. Mook and Lulu could not have been happier to count eggs, stroke chickens, meet horses and whoop at puppies! Thank you Cathy!
We rounded our lovely day off with afternoon tea at Mook & Lulu Towers (Granny helpfully took Mook & Lulu to the park while we set up).
Granny Mook & Lulu was treated to iced shoe-shaped cookies (Granny loves shoes!), lemon & blueberry cupcakes, finger sandwiches, cheese, bacon and sundried tomato scones (fresh from the oven), granny’s favourites – sugar almonds, and tea from a tea pot in one of the vintage teacups. Perfect!
Happy Mother’s Day Granny Mook & Lulu!
Nanny Mook & Lulu’s turn next!
