Pear Muffins

We love a long weekend.  The little extra sleep in, the ease of waking up without rushing to go somewhere, everyone at home, casual breakfasts, playing outside, going for a walk , hanging out with the chickies, collecting eggs and baking muffins.

    I enjoy baking, though I don’t do it very often. Mostly because once baked it must be eaten – which isn’t good news for the waistline when it’s just the 2 of us. Pear muffins do sound delicious though!

    • Ahh, true! I’m always thinking of what to bake next though!
      Thanks so much for popping by Kath x
