Back to my nest

homeComing home these days seems to be all about the food. Something about autumn makes me feel like stockpiling, just in case I need to hibernate, so this morning I bought a few kilos of tomatoes at the market. A cauldron of sauce, destined to be frozen in single serving bags, has been quietly bubbling for the past 3 hours or so.
Just before I went away (not counting my very brief trip home with Laura) I found British apples in Waitrose and I’ve been excitedly looking forward to coming back and finding them at the farmers’ market. I wasn’t dissapointed. And there were still raspberries, so crumble may be in order.


Now I’ve got a book eligible to win an award with ‘children’ in its name.


And my own bed to curl up in. So big!

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
