Meringues & meanderings

Is this not one of the most amazing meringues you’ve ever seen?

How about these?

This wonderful cafe appeared on a Cambridge street just as me & dear Wibblyfish had exhausted ourselves by walking miles and miles round the town, gathering supplies for our weekend of crafting. (More about that tomorrow.)

We shared the yummy lemon meringue (I helpfully observed that it “tasted just like lemon meringue pie, just without the pie” – yet again proving my talent at stating the glaring obvious!), whilst Mrs WF had a Strawberry smoothie made from fresh English strawberries and I had Rosehip tea. Glorious. If you’re in the ‘bridge any time soon, do check out Origin8.

Our tea break was politely interrupted by a couple of Dutch hitch hikers who needed an extra chair. One left their (also gorgeous looking) brownie on our table whilst retrieving coffees and our observation on his return that this was a dangerous item to leave next to a pregnant woman drew a question that had both of us giggling:

“Oh! Which one of you is pregnant?”

Cue much giggling. It seems Mrs WF’s obvious 5 month pregnant bump is not so obvious when sat down. Luckily, the student redeemed himself by going on to say that he assumed we were both students. Cue even more giggling.

Unfortunately we then managed to look exceedingly dim as we couldn’t answer any of his questions about goood places to go in the town as neither of us actually live there!
