Changeable weather. Sunny yesterday. Today, grey skies and scudding clouds. When we're inside it's dry and warm. The second we move outside the weather gremlin turns on the taps and we get soaked.
After our walk down to the stream we head off in the car for the morning croissant. As we get to the cafe the skies open. Sophie isn't allowed inside so we stand on the patio with the rain dripping down around us.
A coffee, a bowl of water and a croissant fresh from the oven arrive. The waitress gives Sophie an ear scrunch. Sophie is oblivious to this. Her attention is focused on the croissant. Todays offering is a 9.5/10. It's so good we have a second. Sophie heartily agrees with a day that starts with double curly croissant ends. One of the benefits of being an early rising dog owner is that you get to the bakers just as the first bread of the day is at that moment of warm perfection. The novelty of being able to go out for a morning coffee after three months indoors may also have something to do with it.
The bakers wife has made some salted caramel brownies. We buy two. It goes without saying that 'The Font' will not be tempted by the thought of a salted caramel brownie. The icing on the Brownies hasn't quite set yet which means they stick to the paper bag . Sophie eyes up the bag with keen interest.
