A while ago I treated myself to a couple of rather pretty teacups and have waited to use them. I’m a coffee drinker, I only ever have tea to dunk biscuits into or if I’m ill, today I feel a bit poorly so decided to get the cups out. I felt obliged to make a cake to go with the tea, and as it’s the season, a coffee and walnut cake got made. I don’t feel any better but loved looking at it all and made me feel homesick……such an english thing to do.
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
