Welcome to my new follower Stef.
Our walk this week
took us to and around the area of Barton Bendish. Unfortunately, I
forgot to take my camera so no photographs. Due to that, I see no
point in explaining it. Suffice to say, it was cold, grey,
depressing, wet underfoot, you get the general idea!

more interesting and hopefully, it will be dry underfoot.
Popped out to do a
quick top me up of fresh vegetables and one or two other items.
Although the temperature was 2 Celsius, the wind was gradually
picking up and it was penetratingly cold. We were both glad to get
Also bought some
bricks to build a partially aerated floor under the compost bins in an effort
to keep the rat out. No sign of it has been seen since we dealt with it,
but we don't want to tempt fate. The job however, will have to wait
for a warmer day. By the time DB had unloaded the bricks his hands

I'm trialling a new
recipe today from The Iowa Housewife, the link to which can be found here
Herewith some photographs of them being made: We tried half of one each after they were cooked and they were very nice. As plain flour is used rather than strong bread flour. I don't expect them to last too long but who knows.
Tea tonight will
primarily be a root vegetable curry. Certain vegetables in the fridge
are going soft and need to be used up. Bet you'll all be glad to see
the back of my depressing liver risotto picture but it was lovely,
