Well hello lovely friends, it’s so wonderful to be back. I needed to take a few weeks off blogging to give myself a little creative breathing space. I enjoyed slowing down and even managed to do a few recipe shoots, so keep an eye out in the New Year for some delicious Summery baked treats.
Good morning sweet friends. Are you enjoying this much needed rain and cooler days in your neck of the woods? Our family ventured on a road trip to Sydney this week, where the blustery winds and heavy rains have apparently settled in for a while. Not to be daunted, we braved the Manly ferry into the city today which was quite an adventure, full of wild seas, traumatised children and spew buckets, but I will tell that story next week!
Hello from my cosy lounge room. It’s Sunday afternoon. The fire is blazing and torrential rain is currently flooding the surrounding farmland. These are the best kind of days. I have been in my pyjamas since we came home from church and have just finished a pot of my favourite French earl grey tea. I am reading “Mr Midshipman Easy” by Captain Marryat at the moment. It was written in 1836 and my worn copy of the book appears to be almost as old. Last year I read “Children of the New Forest” by the same author, which was an equally brilliant book.
