French bread.

I made my first ever batch of french bread (using dry yeast not sourdough) last night and it was so good that my boyfriend and I ate the whole stick with a bottle of wine. It was so good that I had to make more when I woke up this morning. One of the two will be going to work with me today for my work mates to eat, and I won't be home tonight so my boyfriend will get the whole remaining stick to himself. Oh well I'll have to make yet more when I get home on Sunday.

I've been charity shop shopping.

I couldnt resist these. They're tiny but so, so cute. You can see the decoration on the cup is a hop vine.

Four cups and saucers for £1:95. I could not resist.

I also picked about 80% of my bean crop, I have them drying on my pizza/bread baking stone.

We got Esme a catnip mouse. I think she likes it. Almost as much as she likes my shoes.



The lily's today and how Esme has grown.


This is a picture taken today after having her for almost two weeks.

This is Esme when we first got her. I can't believe how quickly she has grown.

Lily progress.

The lily is all the way open now and has started to smell. It smells so wonderful. I really love the way lilies smell.  


That is one massive lily flower.


There's no smell yet, but I'm hopeful it will smell as nice as it looks.
