I'm home with a feverish girl today. It's been one of those days when we haven't even walked out the front gate. So far, we've only been outside once - to trial Audrey's new gumboots in the yard. She loved them in the shop because they had flowers on them. I loved them because they reminded me of a Liberty print. When we got them home, I shuffled though my small stack of precious Liberty... They are very 'inspired', don't you think?
While we were outside we picked the first oranges of the season from our tree. They're a bit young still, but they made a nice faux orange & poppy seed cake (faux because all the recipes I had for this called for 6 eggs, almond meal and boiling the oranges. We're determined not to leave the house, so I meddled with a butercake recipe).
Now I'm just hoping this turns out to be a faux fever.
