My wish list

 I have been thinking about getting a denim sofa for my office at home for a while now...I have 3 tressel tables and my friend Rachel, has been holding a flower school there on the odd occasion, so I may have space for one.. Its got clean chalky white walls and wooden floors so it needs a bit of texture.. It smells lovely with the sandalwood burning...
 This spring I'd like to borrow my dad's morris minor and go on a picnic somewhere in the Cotswolds.. maybe even Wales if we have time to go on long walks..I love the smell of the leather in these old cars and the sound of the exhaust..
 I hardly ever drive my car but have had it for so long now, but if I could just have a Landy for the weekend it would be like this..
Oh and this.....lovely old tin church... I dream of renovating one of these and having a cool space inside with a wood burner and maybe even a shop!!!!

Sunday Scotch egg's...

Sunday's can be so productive if you want them to be... I had an early start today as I was so excited with the whole day off I couldn't wait to get started! I had a good spring clean in the kitchen as we have been doing alot of wood oven cooking and entertaining it's been abit neglected..

Then I had a spring clean in my shoe cupboard, MG Frome are having a jumble sale and high tea to raise money for charity so I am going to donate some of my pre-loved chloe shoes and a Mui Mui pair, Tom helped me bag everything up and then we had some of his home-made cider for lunch and made some Scotch eggs..

We used Tom's sausage's for the sausage-meat, mixed with chopped parsley, thyme, spring onions, paprika, salt and pepper (heavy on the pepper), mustard powder. Then boiled 6 eggs for approx 6 minutes so they are soft boiled. Meanwhile we put some bread in the magimix to make crumb's and then toasted them on a tray in the Aga for a few minute's to dry them out so there is no moisture at all. When all ready and egg's are peeled we wrapped each egg in sausage-meat, dippped it in whisked egg and then rolled in breadcrumbs. Then we deep fried them to perfection. The moment of truth was when we cut them open to see the egg yolk run....Yum!

Changing rooms

Tom and I have been decorating our lounge recently, its the biggest room in the house, standing about 12 foot high 30 feet long (hence it's taken 2 years to get round to it) we have completely white washed it and have a blank canvas to decide on the new colour, mean while we've been enjoying having cold winter supper's picnic style...
