… you might want to stop reading now. This is a sugar-heavy post!
It was Mother’s Day in the UK yesterday, so daughter #1 and boyfriend headed down the M2, son #1 drove across the Kent countryside and daughter #2 just about managed the trek downstairs to spend a lovely day with Mum. This called for a bit of home baking. Now cake has a life-expectancy of minutes in our house but I did just manage a quick snapshot before it disappeared.
Sunday turned out to be a much lovelier day than forecast so we all set off for the seaside (minus daughter #2 who had to work – much to her disgust). Not only do we live about 4 miles from the sea, but we only have to travel a few miles north, east or south and we fall off the edge and straight into the briney, so we are spoilt for choice. Yesterday we decided on Broadstairs and I can categorically deny that our decision had anything to do with the ice cream parlour.
We all managed a lovely walk along the seafront. Actually, we tolerated the walk while we dreamt of chocolate gelato and frozen yogurt, so it wasn’t a very long walk. It was, however, a fairly fast one once we spotted the sign…
This was the picture we took to send back to daughter #2 while she was at work…
Walking into Morelli’s is like stepping back in time. Pink leatherette seats, pink and white formica table tops and light fittings that look like Mr Whippy cones. This parlour has been in Broadstairs since 1932 and I don’t think it has changed in all that time.
And just to complete the sugar overload, I have three large boxes of chocolate to demolish –all by myself.
And now I want to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments you’ve left. It seems more than a little strange that anybody would want to read my ramblings. And… a big thank you to my lovely friend Carol who has blogged about me over at iStitch. We’re not just blogging mates but we live within a short drive of one another and regularly meet to stitch and bitch along with four more lovely friends. I intend to tell you all about Carol and her gorgeous cross stitch designs another day.
