Last week was a pretty hectic week at Crafty Chai towers. It’s fair to say I was ecstatic when Friday evening arrived. As I’d been so busy, I’d planned a few treats for the weekend. One was a delicious bottle of organic fairtrade vegan wine from Stellar Winery, ticking all my ethical boxes. I don’t drink alcohol very often, but am pleased to have found all of my favourite tipples available for vegans. I’d also planned some cake from Barefoot Kitchen in Oxford. While I did have my eye on a slice of the vegan chocolate cake, it had sold out by the time we got there. So I had a slice of the incredibly delicious banana caramel cake. It was a-mazing!

Banana Caramel cakeI also managed to squeeze in two long baths and a few adventure filled dog walks with Poppy, one of which involved Snake’s Head fritillaries, Kenneth Graham’s grave and Poppy falling in to the River Cherwell! It was a lovely weekend and I can’t wait for the next one.

Life can move at such an incredible pace so it’s important to slow down and make time for some of life’s pleasures, like cake and wine!
