christmas in august

I really love that my life has taken this turn into the world of multimedia. As I get older and my knees get creakier I find myself relishing the thought of sitting at my keyboard and regaling you with some great stories of my time spent at the stove and hopefully you can pick up plenty of cooking ideas and tips along the way.

You might be forgiven for thinking that I do not, infact have an allotment.

I shall rectify this in the coming weeks and thought you might enjoy reading an article that was first published last autumn in the lovely Garden Heaven.
