I am finally back in the garden after an absence of two and a half months…….and there’s a lot to do (!!)…..but I’m not panicking! I’ll walk you round the garden and explain how I’m planning to get back on top of things without panic or pressure. With a bit of time and a lot of determination and hard work I’m hoping to produce a whole lot of my own food again this year.

On the Sofa: A visit to Yorkshire.
Hurrah, now the kitchen is done I have my ‘Thoughts On’ chair back! Todays chat is about my recent visit to Yorkshire and covers myriad subjects: trains, horses, cakes, beans, islands and open-air entertainment amongst them. Grab a cuppa and join me for a natter. The mountain biking youtuber I mentioned is Danny: http://www.youtube.com/@Danny_MacAskill
On the Sofa: Pressing Matters.
I’m taking a breather between big projects by getting on with some of the smaller jobs which were neglected while I got the kitchen done. Join me for some pressing and chatting.

On the Sofa: The Finished Kitchen!
It’s a bit of a long one today but, by the end, the kitchen is finished and staged….woohoo! I hope you’ll find it full of ideas and hints and tips. There’s a section in which I talk about how I tackled the grout because it has been a great success and folk have asked how I did it….plus chat about how I work with colours and textures to create a harmonious whole etc and the final cost.
On the Sofa: Kitchen, Dorset & Dietary Changes.
A quick natter between jobs: today I’m catching you up with the kitchen progress (and the move progress in general), the flat in Dorset, some dietary changes plus other snippets of chat before a peek at the kitchen. I hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend.
On the Sofa: I’m half-way there!
I’m half-way there with the kitchen renovation…..actually, a bit more than half, just the painting to do now. Today it’s a round-up of all the prep work that has happened plus a bit of chat on the sofa including a couple more tips for the reno/decorating (one of which uses a hairdryer)…..and some other stuff.
On the Sofa: Butcher’s Block Renovation (& house move news).
Today the kitchen work is all about the Butcher’s Block counter-top renovation. I’ll share with you how I do it and hopefully give some helpful tips if you’ve not done it before…..and a useful tip concerning small holes in the plaster work. Half way through the job I take a quick break and catch you up on news re the house move which has ramped up a bit and I’m getting to the stage of actually looking at properties. Eek, exciting times.
