Looking Ever Forward

I don’t mind planning ahead, really I don’t…

Keys, money, phone by Misericordia

But I’m starting back to teaching this week and I’ve already had to start making myself timed to-do lists of a kind I usually reserve for planning Christmas dinner.

Although I intellectually appreciate that sometimes the only way to get through a day is to make dinner at 9 o’clock in the morning, I find it really throws me off. I guess it disrupts the narrative of the day.

Completely contrary to most of the people I speak to, I really like the way autumn starts getting darker and wetter about now.

I’ve noticed that I’ve been burrowing into my phone a lot (due to a distinct lack of conversation that doesn’t involve Lego or why I won’t make Halloween costumes for teddies), so I’m trying to lift my gaze a little and enjoy the light.

If I can only prevent myself from turning into a pumpkin on the sofa at the end of the day, then I’d really be on to something!

Morningside Makers Market this Saturday, 6th September

Happy September everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful summer and are feeling full of the joy that only new notebooks and pens can provide.

This one is a present to myself for passing my Pilates Equipment exam, which has been the source of much anxiety around Misericordia Mansions since June.

In a very organised moment last year, I booked myself in for a whole year’s worth of craft fairs and next one is on Saturday. I will be at the Morningside Makers Market and I’d love to see you there!

If you’ve got your diary handy, all the dates for all the craft fairs are here.

Sweet Tooth Season

I’ve run out of apples.

I’m remarkably uncreative when it comes to autumn fruit. I quite like pears and plums and all of the other things I should be eating, but I only seem to buy apples.

I’m very picky, I like them crunchy and sour. Nothing with the word Delicious in the title and the funnier the name the better. Incidentally, I once saw a quite fascinating programme about apples; among the things I learned is that apple pips are like people, every one is different. So all the Bramley apples you buy are grafted from a single Bramley tree in Nottinghamshire which was planted in 1809. The tree is still alive, which is quite neat…

However, in the absence of apples I tend to turn to something a bit sweeter. Something brown sugary, maybe a little maple-y, a little gooey?

Mmm, yes a bit like that.

So while I try to resist the real thing, you can buy yourself (or your sweetheart) a 100% guilt-free sugar pie. Or if you’d like to see the dessert menu (or the sweet trolley, which I think should make a comeback)?
