In remembrance of Sydney Bacon

I first published this post in 2014 and it seems very fitting to republished today on the 100th anniversary of the armistice. Amazingly my Dad discovered this newspaper amongst his own fathers memorabilia yesterday. This morning I will be going to our local service to remember all of those who perished in this and other…

That was October

This post is a bit late coming after a tempête de merde of a week last week – I won’t go into details but many things decided to conspire against us both personally and in our business so it was not a good time! Thank goodness for yoga! Anyway those who know me know that I’m…

Autumn palette7

Welcome back pixel palettes

There is something very satisfying about making these palettes! One day i might use them for decorating a room but for the time being I’ll just enjoying playing around with the colours from my photos! Palettes one and two were made from photos from this mornings walk which was dull and damp.

Pearl barley and feta bake

OK – I’m back with a vengeance with lots of recipes, photos and photoshopping ideas!  Today I thought I’d hop on the meat-free Monday train with this  lovely vegetarian twist on the frittata packed full of green goodness and tangy cheese.

Comfort food

Spring wet garlic

The first wet garlic of Spring

While we were shopping on Saturday I spotted the first wet garlic of the spring on one of the stalls on Norwich market. For the uninitiated, wet or green garlic is the first fresh harvest of the season and it is called  “wet”  because it has not been hung up to dry so does not…

Morning walk

Snow walk-10

A visit from the beast from the East!

I suspect like me you are very bored of hearing about the snow and the beast from the East! However as I type the big thaw is already well underway and it is feeling much warmer in our cold old house! Over the snow days we managed to get out for a few walk –…

The unveiling of spring

This week has been a mixed bag of weather. It started with the equinox on Monday which was cold and wet and miserable. But as the week has gone on the sun has taken over and slowly but surely things are warming up. As always I’ve been out walking every morning – taking the same…

Foggy Halloween sunrise

It was one of those beautiful ethereal mornings today – with the dew hanging off cobwebs and the sun gradually burning through the heavy fog.  Every where I looked there were photos! As usual on my morning walk all of the photos below were taken on my mobile phone.
