Thanks to the long Diamond Jubilee weekend I decided to take a couple of extra days off work and make the most of the week.  Things got off to a great start with a visit to friends in Cambridge, one of the many cities I have lived in and one I have a great affection for.  Here are a few pics I snapped on my iphone!

No mention of Cambridge would be complete without...
It rained and rained and rained so sadly I couldn’t do the colleges justice. We had many breaks for coffee to keep dry and warm up. 
We visited Kettle's Yard House, the former home of Jim and Helen Ede.  I adore this house.  The space is amazing and contains their unique art collections.  Even though the sky was dark with rain clouds, the sense of light in this house is beautiful.

Back at home and the weather didn’t really improve.  These cows knew what was coming...
Pretty water lilies, not quite Monet...
Almond Butter Banana Sandwiches in mid prep on homemade Gluten Free Bread. 
We got a bumper lot of strawberries thanks to a Diamond Jubilee supermarket offer...
Brown Butter Strawberry Banana Bread adapted from Joy the Baker...expect this and more strawberry recipes in the near future!
I am now on instagram (slightly addicted), you can see/follow my gallery here.
