What’s Growing In The Garden

Eeesh, it’s been way too long since I blogged! Unfortunately we’ve still not got internet (or TV!) set up, and I’m getting a little bit stir-crazy – two months without internet feels like a lifetime! The new house is brilliant – it’s been more than either of us could have hoped for, and that’s especially […]

This and that

Lately I’ve not been up to much of anything. I’ve been doing uni exams, the odd bit of cooking, some gardening, that sort of thing. The lovely clematis on the patio Blueberry and polenta cupcake from the Primrose Bakery Cookbook – excellent, by all accounts There’s loads of things growing in the garden now, I’ve […]

Where does the time go?! I hadn’t realised I had so many (well, not THAT many, but y’know!) things to post about! Playing with my new circle cookie cutters! Fabric-covered frames I made one of these frames ages ago (last year, if not the year before) and never got round to covering it as my […]
