I was in for a surprise.

I took these pictures before i went away for a few days 


There are now two tiny little blue eggs sitting under the rhubarb.

More home brew time.

And this one's a bit of a strange one. Lemon flavoured wine.
it took a long time to peel all the zest from nine lemons.

And juicing them is painful when you have dry injured hands.

but isn't the colour beautiful?

I now have to leave this in a warm place stirring it daily. Then I'll be able to put it in a demi john, leave it for a few months and then bottle it. :) I wonder if it will taste nice?

UPDATE: I've given the lemon wine a good stir, the yeast has started to work, and its made the whole brew smell wonderful. It smells like lemon drizzle cake. :D

I've been feeling down today so i decided to cheer myself up with a homemade curry.

It tasted utterly fantastic, and it was really simple to make.

 I know it doesn't look the same, I had to add things I had in the house instead of what the recipe asked for but that's how you make good food, I think. I had full fat coconut milk. Garam masala, carrots and mushrooms to the recipe to replace stuff I didn't have. Or just because they needed using. Truly super meal and I highly recommend it.

Well the weather has not been the best.

Its been raining on and off so I haven't done a great deal outside, but I've managed to pot on all of the basil, tomato and peppers. I also made some everything in the store cupboard flapjacks as a friend was coming to the house to help me with Mrs wiggle who was stuck in her shed.
