A Domestic Month

It's hard to believe that we're half way through February, the second month of the year.  I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that it's January 2013.  The weeks have flown past and I have been busy but again I'm bursting my own bubbles and believing that I haven't really accomplished...

Would You Like to Come to Tea?

Once a month, me and my friends (I'm sorry but 'my friends and I' just sounds way too pretentious!) meet up to knit and crochet together.  We each take turns hosting it and the original idea was that we'd of course have a drink alongside (tea or coffee being somewhat obligatory in this country at...

It’s All Riding on How the Cake Turns Out

It's crazy but when I'm exhausted, stressed out and just plain overwhelmed by everything I go into the kitchen.  I take down my treasured recipe books (there are a few of these!) and start thumbing through.  Sometimes there's already a germ of an idea slowly taking root in my fogged out head.  It's usually baking,...
