This Week…


aug wk beg 18th

This week I’ve been fully embracing my new routine in the Shire! I’ve been…

*Making a lot of cakes, using recipes from Bake a Difference, which I’m selling as part of my new business, Hand and Heart. My favourites so far are the White Chocolate and Walnut Blondies and Auntie Glad’s Lemon Cake.

*Experimenting with new bracelets for my Hand and Heart stall.

*Enjoying going back to childhood and playing on the swings with my sister!

*Drinking Chai Latte, Chai Latte, Chai Latte. In my favourite mug πŸ™‚

*Appreciating slowing down a little, and taking a few moments to rest and appreciate the good stuff, like dog walks and nap time and nail polish.

*Practising discipline in terms of getting to church groups and making time to pray.

*Naming new chickens over at Andrew’s parents’ place.

*Finding freshly laid eggs.

*Listing my aims for this year and next, to keep me focused.

*Eating grilled chicken, pesto potatoes, courgettes and salad. The most satisfying meal ever.

*Looking forward to working with Andrew next week for Old Folding Maps.

*Loving getting a parcel of happy making things from my lovely friend Kate πŸ™‚

*Wearing Maybelline Colour Show nail polish as well as some of their mascara and eye shadow, my latest impulse buys!

*Planning book storage.

*Dreaming of Italy.

*Thankful for family and friends.
