Seven Things About Me

Last week,  Anne over at Frayed at the Edge gave me a blog award. It was a lovely surprise and as it’s the seventh award I’ve been given by fellow bloggers, it seemed like the right time to pass on some “blog love”. It seems, that in “accepting” this one, I have to tell you seven things about me, so here goes:

1: I failed “O” level cookery (very badly)

2: I have stood on stage at the Royal Albert Hall with Maureen Lipman in front of a full house!

3: My favourite food is crisps (smoky bacon if you’re buying please)

4: My favourite exercise is swimming and it’s my ambition to live by the sea again so I can start each day with a dip in the sea rather than a pool full of chlorine!

5: My greatest achievement is raising a confident and caring child

6: I am very good at pretending to be organised, but in actual fact, my secret is lists, lots of them and texting myself reminders of things not to forget.

7: I keep my laptop in the kitchen and blog while tea is cooking, so the length of a post is often determined by what we’re having to eat!

There, well done if you read to the end! Now, I have to pass the award on to Seven bloggers, so here, in no particular order:

Random Wooliness

Knitsister

The Botanical Baker

Emma Varnam

OOps, this blog deleted from list because I’ve just read the nasty things she wrote about Great British Bake Off :(

Mirandabakes

Little Cotton Rabbits

So there you are, some blogs you may have come across before, some may be new to you, what they have in common is simple: Lovely ladies who love what they do.

  2. Now I want to know who you deleted!! I miss swimming since we moved here – there is a horrible local authority pool, but having been spoiled by swimming in a super pool when I belonged to a gym, now I just swim on holiday.

    Ah, you’ll never know who was deleted. Such a shame though as it was a good blog, spoilt by catty comments. No doubt it will show up in lots of google searches for the programme and get her more readers, but sadly lost me :(

  5. Was that my comments about The Great British Bake Off? Apologies if I offended you but I’m entitled to my own opinion and certainly didn’t write it for hits, I was just venting my frustration of how critical I found it to be.

  • The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!

Can you read that  card? A valet to whiten your converse! Brought back memories of  whitening my Dunlop green flash in the 70's!!!
#chatsworth #converseallstars #conversetrainers Strange sky tonight. Common hogweed. Even the weeds look beautiful in the sunshine today. The flowers and  stems of this one are destined for the dye pot. There are lots of varieties of hogweed, if in doubt don't touch - the sap is highly irritant, even poisonous in some. 
#hogweed #foraging #ecodye #permaculture  #naturaldye #slowliving #bakingandmaking Everyone loves elderflowers - even the cockchafers (maybugs). Last night we sat in the garden drinking the first batch of elderflower champagne, watching the bats & the moths and listening to a blackbird serenading us. The hedgerows are full of elderflowers & champagne is easy to make (easier than cordial), if you have white wine vinegar, lemons & sugar. Click on the link in my bio and type "elderflower champagne" in the search bar.
