Easter Nests 2 Ways

Despite Potato being poorly this week, we managed to squeeze in some last minute Easter baking.

With my parents here this weekend to help out in the garden, I thought that we’d better have some suitable Easter goodies in to provide us with some extra energy for digging, planting, mowing and pruning.

Planting Sunflowers

One of the things that I love most about our house, is the garden. It’s one of the things that sold the house to me in the first place.

It’s not very big. It doesn’t have views or places to build dens and hide-aways.

But it’s enough and it faces the glorious, glorious south. Pretty much the whole garden gets sunshine all day and it’s sheltered and warm.

Rediscovering My Childhood Cookbooks

Regular readers of this blog can't have missed the fact that I love cooking; Baking especially. I want to pass that passion onto Potato, so we cook together as much as possible. At 23 months old, he's already pretty good at helping out and can have an attempt at most steps of a simple recipe.

I remember baking with my Mum as a child. The memories are good and it must be where my love of cooking comes from. I especially remember baking from 2 special childhood cookbooks.

Imagine my excitement when I discovered Mum still had them!

A Confession – I’m Broody

Spring has well and truly sprung. In fact, as I'm sat here in the garden writing, it feels like it's almost given way to summer already. Yesterday, we spent a lovely day out the Kent Rare Breeds Centre, really making the most of the sunshine, surrounded by newborn lambs, adorable calves and fluffy chicks.

All those babies made me finally accept the truth. I'm broody. Very broody! I want another baby.
