Banana loaf with coconut icing

It is such a wonderful thing when someone goes out of their way for you, to do something that they really didn’t need to do but they did it anyway.

We kinda lost touch over the past few years but met up for dinner last week in London with his new wife, Jo, and me with the BF (We went to Boho Mexicana in Shoreditch if you are interested, lots of tequila which makes me VERY happy).
