Cheesecake and folk festivals

Yesterday we took Rowley a walk around Moira Furnace its beautiful and the walks are great for dog walkers.

When we pulled up to the car park we noticed there was an event on so we nearly turned round until we noticed other dog walkers.
We intruded on a folk festival with stalls of pottery, clothes, instruments, food, beer, and lots of carved wood which I ended up coming home with this……


.isnt it great, its mango wood and I love it BUT not very frugal of me.

Anyway Ive been told I do the best cheesecake so I thought I would share.
