Puerto Pollensa revisited

Just back from a relaxing week in Majorca. This is the second time The Cliftons have visited Pollensa and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful scenery - the craggy mountains, a backdrop to the beautiful coast line, lovely dining in The Square and Pine Walk and gorgeous weather.

Spent our days mostly lounging around and in the pool and I even managed to finish a book - one of the highlights of my holiday - The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal. Mimi has a monster tan (despite the factor 50 sun protection!!) and Dr Green and Cakes are off white.

As usual, we had a few disasters - lost our holiday money, left an ipod touch on the bus, broke the apartment key IN the lock AND(we could struggle to top this!) got stuck way up high on the side of a mountain behind a private locked gate(don't ask - but maybe Dr Green will listen to me next time?).

Now back in the UK and thinking about next year's summer hols. Not sure if anyone caught Three Men in a Boat this week but Croatia looks stunning. Or maybe we'll take a cruise in the Med. Bring it on.

Bye bye girls

This trio of lovelies has been packed off to Roses & Rue and hopefully will be re-homed soon.

On a separate note, found a great bit of burlap printed bunting on Etsy. May have to try this out very soon. How exciting!

Mini cheesecake heaven

Check out these little beauties over on the Pink Whisk Blog. She's a clever girl that Ruth. Think I'll try this recipe very soon (using my brand spanking new Kenwood food processor!).

Rainbow cake....

... a little something to make you smile.
