Would You Like Custard With That?

We are off to Birmingham for the day tomorrow, with our friends Ben & Helen (see photo). Ben, Helen and I are going to the ReSource Church Plant Training day at the Custard Factory. While we're at that, Jo (who grew up in Birmingham) and the kids will meet up with an old school friend, Amy. It should be a good day all round.

B&H are coming round for breakfast before we set off. We were going to have croissants and pain-au-chocolat, but now Jo is considering making little pancakes - a Nigella recipe she is trying out for lunch today, with bananas and golden-syrup and chocolate sauce to accompany them...

Meanwhile, in the strange world of my children, Noah has been wandering around the house this morning saying, "I want to go home! I want to go home!" - by which he means where we were on holiday - and wandering around the garden saying "Hi guys!" and requesting "High Five!"s from me - two expressions he picked up in Lexington...and Susannah has introduced Jo and me to her pet snail (garden inhabitant), Horace: she holds him by his shell, and watches him come out of it...


  1. Can you tell that Andrew might be just a teensy bit bored?
