I hate sitting at home not doing very much. This weekend I felt exhausted following travel from Goa so Harry and I did loads of sleeping and watched two films:
Anyhow, this morning I woke up wanting more relaxation so we woke up to some mindless TV (Frasier) then I suggested a country drive to East Grinstead.
We discovered the area by accident last summer and found a lovely cafe there called Sparrow's Nest where we read and ate for 3 hours Today.
The Kiwi loaf cake and ginger loaf are both to die for. The butternut squash and apple soup seemed a bit thin at first bit it was bursting with flavor so I got used to the thinness.
We'll be back.
Day 1: Friday 14-Feb. First Impressions Of Mumbai, India
India was great fun! I thought this would mostly be a text-based blog post but I discovered the YouTube Capture app on day 1 of the holiday which made it easy for me to create and upload vids from my phone...so I made videos.
Click for the YouTube playslist of the journey through Goa or just watch each video below.
Day 1, later That Night...As It Was Valentine's Day...
My gifts plus what I said the first time Harry said those three words.
Day 2: Saturday 15-Feb. First Day In Goa
We randomly found a driver called Babu. He took us to some old churches, Spice Farm and a temple. The highlight was seeing Modern Tarzan climb up a tree then shoot down really fast. It was amazing but out of 15 people only Harry and I thought he deserved a tip!

All I had in the fridge were some limp carrots and wilting parsely. I also had onion and garlic so I made what turned out to be a husband-stealing carrot and parsley soup. Fortunately for you girls, I am happily married :), lol.
