There was only one consolation for a cold grey Whit Monday,
heralded by this corrugated sky last night,
make and eat
a large number of biscuits.
O's pistachio macaroons from Nigella Lawson's Domestic Goddess.
(Don't be deceived; the sunshine on this plate was only
a teasing glimmer).
Lemon and cumin biscuits from The African Kitchen
by Josie Stow and Jan Baldwin via Sarah Raven.
Then put the heating back on just for a little while
and watch Springwatch.
