Been so busy lately thinking about health matters (nothing to worry about everything is fine!) that I forgot all about a montage for June. In June, I told you about the dinosaur I made for my Grandson’s birthday and a Never-Ending card I made for my granddaughter’s birthday. I also had a post about the… Read More Monthly Montage – June
I took the pictures for this post a week ago but was too busy to put it together. So here is some views of my garden recently. I was pleased to find that my Vagabond clematis had a new flush of flowers. but less so to see that the slugs had been busy lower down. I was… Read More For those who like such things – more flowers and bread
No post yesterday as it was time for Christmas! Yes, Christmas transferred from 25th December due to my being in hospital. I am pleased to relate that I managed to cope with it all quite easily so I am now officially ‘better’! Of course I did spread preparation out over the weekend and had an… Read More And yesterday was …………. Christmas
In April I once more shared a lot of cooking and flowers. There were the Hot Cross buns and Simnel muffins I made for Easter time and a couple of loaves of bread. The same ideal recipe but first as a Farmhouse loaf and then as more of a Bap shape. Now able to get… Read More April Montage

I was rather pleased that they came out so long… Read More Finally my hybrid socks!
Been quite busy really the last few days. On Thursday I decided to make some Hot Cross Buns. [Now this third cycle of the chemo is not much fun and I am struggling a bit so don’t be surprised that things I have been making are not up to my usual standard that is rather… Read More Crosses and coaster
A Happy and Blessed Easter to all my followers! The photograph is one I took while staying in Taizé many, many years ago. Then later I added the text to turn it into an Easter card. I always feel that Festive Food adds to an occasion, so for Easter I made some ‘Simnel muffins’. Not… Read More Happy Easter
Ever since I weaned myself off white bread in my forties because I believed wholemeal to be more nutritious, I have found white bread a little insipid and prefer the more robust flavour of the wholemeal. However I am now having to have less fibre in my diet so white bread is best. I noticed… Read More Yet more bread!

Unlike most bread recipes the liquid used was milk. Now the first bread I had made… Read More Making more bread
