From here on in...

Since starting a group called 'Self sufficientish' over on Flickr, there's not a whole lot of self sufficientish going on. In fact, I've pretty much become dependent on poor David, who's been doing the vast majority of cooking, cleaning and general nurturing in our flat - even down to taking the kittens to the vet. Still, ahead of NYE and resolutions etc, I have decided to turn a new leaf and try to prevent teaching from taking over as much of my life as it has (guess that means I'll have more to blog about anyway...)

With this in mind I happily purchased a carton of buttermilk today, with which I plan to make my first loaf of soda bread tomorrow... it's the small things in life, hey?

Happy Birthday

Woops - amidst my excitement over half term recently I forgot to wish a very Happy Birthday to L'Epicerie @ 56. Well done chaps :)

Dig for Britain

Having a garden is obviously a bonus here, but in the meantime I shall dream of the things I might grow from here. Quite like the sound of starting a seed circle, too...
