This Week I’m Loving …

It’s been a while since I filled you in on the things I’m loving – family life is “full on” just now and time in front of the laptop has to take a back seat. That’s exactly  the way it should be, but I wanted to take few moments to share a couple of special things with you.

First off, if you haven’t discovered Urvashi’s blog yet, go take a look, writing as the Botanical Baker you may recognise her from the Great British Bake Off. Her recipes and posts are an inspiration and I’ve been loving her posts about Mexico this week.

Secondly, I’ve been busy partnering up those of you taking part in the Snail Mail Holiday Swap I’m running with my lovely pal Emma. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with to make for your swaps. Special thanks to Jemma, Sarah, Heike, Dawn, Charlotte and  Ali for signing up. Emma will be setting up a Flickr group so swappers can post photos and everyone taking part will be getting an email from us soon with a reminder of the “rules”. I’m busy knitting for my swap partner – but there will be no sneaky peeks here I’m afraid!

Finally, I’m loving this gorgeous shawl I have just finished. Destined to be a special gift  for a very special lady about to embark on the adventure we call Motherhood.

Well, that’s it for now. Next time I’ll be back with news from the allotment.

Happy making (and baking).

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
