Micro blogging has also distracted me from this space, Instagram and Pinterest are my new online loves. So quick and easy. A snap with my phone, select a gorgeous filter and we're done. Instant.
But I do miss writing here and using my big camera. Since my last post I celebrated a birthday with lovely friends around a bonfire. Had a new window cut into a dark corner of the kitchen. Helped my neighbour plant hundreds of blueberry plants. Enjoyed the last minute flurry of "winter" planting of only just still dormant trees in my own garden. Hazelnuts, apricot, more apples and raspberry canes. Just in the nick of time, as the tiny green buds are already shooting.
I've been enjoying selling our cakes at Salamanca on Saturday too. I love that market. It's so vast, so big, and just has a crazy atmosphere I adore. We're lucky to be in such a great position. Surrounded by long time stalls, many of them now run by the children of stallholders who started the market back in the 1970s. The pie stall, the flower stall and the amazing coffee wagon, that not only does a roaring trade in jam doughnuts, but makes the most amazing coffee with milk from their own cows! It tastes truly amazing.
Today, we're tackling the tiling around the hearth, more subway tiles, and later, black "slate" flagstones will be laid on the floor. Then we'll take the dogs for a walk and prepare something quick and easy for dinner, using the goodies I picked from Harvest Feast, the stall next door to us.
Sundays. Family days. Right now.
