The last few days

I’ve not had much chance to blog in the last few days, we are brilliantly busy making soups and stews at work and this is the time of year that people tend to come to us looking for future projects so all in all it’s busy. The other thing is I almost don’t know what…

On the home straight

I’ve been blown away by the support for doing this little challenge. From complete strangers emailing me with kind words to friends leaving treats by my back door which really make me happy.

Friday without gin and pizza

I have that Friday feeling this afternoon, I’ve been at work this week but it still feels a little confused with the days and my children are ready for term to start, or is that me? However, I still want to celebrate the end of the working week with a treat. Normally this would be…
