70 years of freedom

The Channel Island Liberation celebrations of May 9 commemorate the liberation of the islands from Nazi occupation at the end of the Second World War. This year marked the 70th anniversary and the procession was marked by a wonderful collection of period car, army trucks, tractors and themed floats. The rain stayed away allowing people to enjoy the French Market and the Guernsey market.

Several spectators dressed the part
Gurkhas

Equal adoration....

We should never forget the need to remember those who sacrificed so much so that we could be free.

Hello! I’m Anne and it’s a pleasure to have you look in on my little food blog. As a Thermomix user for more than 10 years and an advisor I can tell you the tips, tricks and greatness of this kitchen wonder. Most of the recipes have Thermomix instructions but please dive in - a sponge is a sponge, and pastry can be made traditionally (but why would you?) I am a keen amateur photographer too, so if you’d like to see what I’m up to please visit my other Instagram page @vannilla
