      Very jealous Geri, I've spent the last 3 weeks in Ceredigion and staying in New Quay. Wales is just breathtaking

        The strawberry sponge looks yummy doesn't it. Trouble is I'll want to eat it all in one go! I'm waiting for the cauliflower cheese to finish cooking. The smell is making my mouth water, lol. Going to have it with cold meat for dinner xx
