The Good Life

This is my new hedgehog house from Garden Trading, a cute addition to our seaside cottage garden.
When we first moved to this cottage back in January, I couldn't have imagined then that I could turn such a small garden into such an amazing place and now we have chickens (ok, so they are rusty ones!), a herb garden, strawberries, flowers, an apple tree, three seperate seating areas, a bird table, a Christmas tree, a shed and lawn! Oh, and now a hedgehog house (and cows in the field at the bottom of the garden!). Just goes to show you don't need acres of land to create the good life.

Grabbing five minutes to read September's issue of Country Living I was very excited to find an inspiring article about JAMSMITH, an innovative and exciting Jam Club created by Vicky Smith.

 It kind of put me in mind of Evie, my leading lady in 'Hope & Jump' and her "food nights".
Needless to say I have subscribed to this exclusive club run by Vicky, and I cannot wait to taste the delights of autumn in a jar!

Geek Dress

I don't know why I keep referring to this dress as 'geeky', because as I'm fairly geeky anyway surely it's no surpris...
