150 of 365


On May 30th we went to visit Rhuddlan Castle. There was a re-enactment society working through a battle scene - not normally our kind of thing, but it was quite good fun :-) The castle itself was really good, The Children had a lot of fun looking round - and running round - and hiding - and chasing each other...

As part of my picnic lunch I had some of the banana loaf I made the week before - it was a great success, The Children loved it, and I will definitely be making it regularly from now on!

I've recently progressed from banana loaf to banana loaf with dark chocolate chips, to much applause.

We don't have such architectural antiquities here - a pity, I can imagine how interesting they would be to visit and how much the children would love to run around inside of them.

I love castles, so much mystery there are quite a few interesting ones in Wales. The one at Conway is my favourite. Love your banana loaf must try that one x

The castle is awesome! Boggles my mind that people used to actually LIVE in those things!

Your banana loaf looks great. It's my son's favorite; must remember to make him some. It's been awhile.

Some people who used to live round the corner from us used to belong to the 'Closed Knot' society which re-enacted battles. Always seemed a bit of a strange way to spend the weekend but I guess if it is in the right location ....!
Love the banana loaf, I used to make that a lot, need to get that recipe out again I think!

I love the photo of this castle, Mel. One of my favorite things is visiting old places like this...although I don't get to do it as often as I'd like. This one looks fabulous...I want to go there...
