So it's been a while since I wrote anything here. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is that we moved house - from city living out to the sticks. Hurrah! We like to think we are living The Good Life. In reality we have a small veggie patch, an apple tree, a plum tree and glorious views of the South Downs. I spent the end of last summer picking, cooking, eating and preserving the fruit from the garden as well as blackberries, elderberries and sloes from the hedgerows. This is a new world for me and I love it (so does Ellie).
The second reason for my absence is... I gave birth to an Eliza. She is my first baby and perfect in every way. She has been doing her best to keep me busy and deprive me of sleep for the last few months and I have loved every delirious minute of it.
