We had a really lazy day today, pottering about and enjoying the sunshine. Instead of getting on with my steadily growing pile of work, I made a banana oatmeal cake (recipe here). I'm not usually a big banana cake fan but I really like this one. The oatmeal topping and touch of lemon zest make it extra tasty. Minty dressed herself in this somewhat kooky ensemble and joined me in the kitchen, goofing around and telling silly jokes. Sometimes it's nice to skive off from the routine and just soak up the day.
