Fortune cookies and lobster pots 


Not only did we have fun last night celebrating Chinese New Year with fortune cookies and quizzes but when we got home our housemate had a new year gift for us, a lobster pot! I’ve always wanted one to try my hand at nabbing one of those elusive underwater prizes. Hopefully this will allow me to explore the wet wild larder that is out there.

All I need now is a boat!

First catch, you can’t leave him for five minutes…..

festELVI 2015 a garden celebration

Last summer we had our first garden festival, FestELVI ! celebrating all that is good about summer, food, birthdays, veg patches and sick making hippy nonsense. Tents were erected, bunting hung from the trees and a bar built from 100% recycled wood dealt out summer cocktails all night long with a merry bunch of revelers partying into the wee small hours.

Elvi is my Barbara in my ‘good life’, a stubbornly creative, fiercely talented woman who has brought a ray of sunshine to my life, don’t say anything but I’m quite smitten.
