Stalactites and Burgers

Hello petals, how the devil are you? The weather has been abysmal, but that has not stopped me from braving the great outdoors. On Saturday we went back to Castleton, to go to the 1950s Buddy's diner and visit Treak Cliff Cavern, I love caves. For some reason I always think I am either a character from The Descent or Ophelia from Pans Labyrinth when I am underground. 




The burger did beat me, it was rather tasty, but could not manage it all! 










A local in front of the cavern shop, love her dress. 




 My ensemble was not at all practical, the dress is second hand and was only £6, it reminds me of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, or a five year old's party dress, both associations make me happy. I was wearing cream brogues they are now wrecked, need me some walking boots. 






I fell on my bum after this point, balancing on a slope for blog pics, I am suave. 




Also made bruschetta for the first time today, it was delicious and had three of my five a day so I felt good. Which I needed to after the burger and jellybeans.

  2. JELLY BEANS! One of the few sweets I love!But I don't like black ones!
    Indeed,who cares about practicality when you look THAT fabulous!I think it's a perfect outfit for walking over the moors and into caves!I'm crazy about the colour of that coat especially!
    Now,I'm actually terrified of being underground,pretty as it looks,and had to miss out on the underground cities in Turkey due to being such a CHICKEN.Grrr.

    1. I have a sweet tooth, my fillings can attest to that. Do you mean the liquorice ones? they are gross! Oh thank you my dear, that is so nice of you! It is my favourite colour atm too.
      Oh no that's crappy, to be fair most rational people hate being underground! xxx

  11. Wow! I'm surprised to learn that there are '50s diners in England. Of course, I'm horribly miseducated when it comes to culinary topics. For years, I thought Salisbury steak was English and recently found out it was named after some American doctor with the surname "Salisbury."

    Anyway, what's underneath the patty in your burger photo? A potato wedge? Ham? Spam? It looks tasty!
