Eric celebrated his birthday on Monday the 27th of February, another year older!This photo was taken in Cornwall, I think it was Sennen. We're going there again in April while the boat is having a paint job. and I am really looking forward to it. I'm a bit concerned about the dust and dirt created by shot blasting the exterior of the boat. We'll put away what we can and cover things with plastic dust sheets, No good worrying about it with another month before  it happens.

On Tuesday we had pancakes cooked in my new frying pan so they didn't stick. I used the recipe on Chris Evan's Radio 2 show for easy pancakes and  they turned out fine. Ingredient were easy  200 grams flour; 300 mls milk and two eggs all beaten up so it was lump free. Delicious with lemon juice and sugar too. Eric had golden syrup......he has a sweet tooth! After Ben's walk in Ellesmere by the Mere we had a lazy afternoon listening to the rain washing the outside of the boat.

On Wednesday it was St David's Day so we just had to have homemade  bakestones or Welsh cakes cooked in a heavy iron pan.  We had a walk around Dearnford Lake in the morning with Ben the dog, the sun was shining too.  Ben managed to stay fairly clean other than his muddy feet. We had a coffee in the dog friendly cafe.

Gwen as Betsi Cadwaladr
It's Welsh week in Gwen's school and they are celebrating all things Welsh. Gwen dressed up as Betsi Cadwaladr  a famous Welsh nurse. Lisa took the photograph.
