All Work, No Play

I seem to have been working non-stop for the past 3 weeks, making me a very dull girl indeed!

Just a couple of little things that gave me moments of delight recently.

We have wild hazelnuts in our forestry! I was in heaven and have plans to pick and roast them and maybe, just maybe, make my own chocolate hazelnut spread. Mmmmm....

Blueberry and raspberry pavlova on the left and raspberry and blackberry pavlova on the right.  Made for a friend's barbeque.  I assume they were quite good as they disappeared super-quick and I didn't even get a piece.  Note to self:  make mini-pavlova for personal consumption next time.

Set of gorgeous antique plates spotted in a junk shop.  I resisted the tempatation to buy...

A magical August sunset.  It was during the recent meteorite showers. 

I'm hoping things will settle down, just a little bit so I can get back to more frequent blogging and picture-taking!

Wishing you an enchanted final week in August!  Siobhan xox

Is there anything better than finding an edible delight in the wild?! At my boyfriend's place, he found blackberries growing at his property line. Love being able to make recipes with an ingredient for free!

Hi Jessica! Yes, it's brilliant to find your own edible goodies! I swear, anything you make with them tastes extra yummy! :)
