      That was a real quick snap while Someone was otherwise occupied! She really enjoyed cleaning out the bowl for me.

      Lovely to catch up with you yesterday!

      I’m not sure about ready, Mona. There’s a lot to do in the house before I can actually look around and not see the next bit of painting or box to unpack. Just realised tonight that my camera cable has gone walkabout!

  3. The new place will be ready just in time for little Cottage Pie! 🙂 Wishing you all the best during this time and looking forward to catching up with you next week.

      Someone asked me if time was dragging at this stage of the pregnancy: I wish! All a bit mad trying to get everything finished. Really looking forward to the workshop though.

    Congratulations on your lovely news,a different type of bun in the oven! 🙂 I am very sorry for your recent loss, the way you write really conveys how much you loved your Granny. It’s nice that you have those lovely memories of her comfort and cooking. My Nana died 7 weeks before I had my daughter (now 4) and I still think about how much she would have loved her if they had met.

    We were very lucky to have Gran around for so long. She saw a lot in her 95 years. I did some recordings with her a few years ago – I remember that they were punctuated with her telling me to drink my tea up before it got cold!
