Today Rosie came home.
For those of you who don’t know, Rosie is our beloved VW T25 camper van. She’s been in VW ‘hospital’ for almost a month…during which time she has cost a lot of money and left us feeling bereft.
Of course in that time the weather has been fabulous; a bank holiday has come and gone along with half term.
Perfect opportunities to get away on an adventure…but she’s all ready for one now.
This weekend we shall be jumping straight in her for a weekend of camping fun and I can’t wait. The freedom that camping offers is wonderful. Surrounded just by the essentials of life and some beautiful nature is just about the most perfect thing in the world.
Before the weekend I have some very important things to sort out. I can’t tell you exactly what at the moment but by the end of the week I should be able to bring you an exciting announcement. It is flour related and involves this recipe for garlic and herb tear and share bread…
In the meantime I hope you enjoy these fishcakes. They are lovely and light for a warm summers day and are quick and easy to make. For convenience I use frozen fish, herbs and garlic, meaning that these can be created in next to no time leaving you with more time to enjoy the lovely weather.
