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.

Food and recipes

Easter chocolate cake and biscuits

Dryathlon day 15: lovely kale!

Just to prove that I’m not spending all of my alcohol free days scoffing chocolate I though I’d show you something healthy that I’ve been eating! Kale seems to be the super food of the moment – lush, green and full of nutrients. I haven’t quite braved juicing it yet – in fact I have…

Super clouds – super moon

It began this morning with another lovely later summer early morning walk.  The sky was bluer than blue with curious streaks and wisps of clouds trailing across the sky. This evening there was a super harvest moon. We bolted our tea and rushed to see it rise orange and streaked with cloud,  from the village…

The first day of Autumn

So today is the first day of Autumn in the meteorological sense at least.  I prefer to go with the equinoxes and won’t really feel it’s Autumn until 21 September.  That said today was not very inspiring.  After a warm and rather cloudy start it was wet for most of the day. Here are a…
