In time for Christmas – Chapter One


I’ve always thought our garden a lovely affair. It’s satisfyingly wild, has more than its fair share of brambles, annoys the neighbours to head popping proportions, produces random harvests of edible fare with little human intervention.

Farewell 2014….


I've completely lost track of the days as you do over the Christmas holidays, so it came as a bit of a surprise to find out it's New Years Eve already & Wednesday.  I have slept for most of the holidays if I'm honest, I was really quite exhausted by Christmas Eve & then came …

The Wreath is Up – not many sleeps to Christmas now!


The Christmas Wreath has been made, it has been glamorously attached to the front door with the aid of Gaffer Tape and BluTak! It looks lovely, a biased opinion I can assure you, but it does look nice! It's a little on the large size and you may have to squeeze carefully past it to …
