LIFE: Bittersweet

Hello my lovelies! It’s been a bittersweet week. I’m settling back into working with lots of ideas bubbling around. I’m making proper plans for the year ahead. I’m slowly regaining my fitness and trialling a standing desk. And sadly we lost my Nannie to pneumonia. A sweet and generous lady who will be missed dearly. Advertisements

LIFE: What a Year

Hello my lovelies! Happy New Year. I hope you are filled with dreams and promise and ready to tackle a fresh 365. If someone told me five years ago that I would be where I am now it would have seemed ridiculous. If someone had told me we would have a single year in which so much would happen in…

LIFE: Umm Yeah…

Hello my lovelies! I would love to give you an exciting update on my week. But that cold I had at the start of the week turned into a monster and I didn’t get up to much. I managed to make some cookies. And a loaf of bread. And I finally made my Christmas cakes on Sunday. Mostly I just…

Christmas Gifts for the Bread Baker

Hello my lovelies! Who knew I’d be handing out advice on gifts. I’m fairly careful to make sure that I clearly signal any food related gifts that I actually want or need. I have been given some terrible cookbooks by well-meaning folks in the past. So this advice is to be used in conjunction with a little snooping or subtle…
