'My nanna always made Yorkshire pudding. I think it was to fill us up before we had the meat and vegetables. Back in those days, Yorkshire pudding was stodgy and made with beef or pork dripping. It's nice with roast beef, potatoes baked in their jackets, and carrots, peas and gravy.'
— Peter's mother reminiscing about Yorkshire pudding from her childhood in County Durham, England
'I remember poffertjes from my childhood. My aunts made these golden balls of dough and served them with a lightly rose-scented sugar syrup as a special treat.'
Sunday at our place was a relaxed tracksuit, newspapers and blueberry hotcakes kinda day. We'd both been a little unwell through the week and, although some (kind) invitations had come our way, we declined politely and relished in having a day indoors all to ourselves.
I believe there's not enough down time these days and it's little wonder that so many people are tired much of the time, myself included. It's all crazy busy and go, go, go. Of course, it's fun to get out, socialise, see friends, meet new people and do things; but it's also ever so fine and dandy to simply kick back and have a pyjama day.

My friend, Christine, recently invited me to share a guest blog on her lovely web pages and this is the snippet that appeared. As fellow blogger, Mel from Miss Piggy Eats, recently commented, 'there is something very nostalgic about old photographs'. I love them, don't you?
