Thinking 🔁 Writing
January to June in my local park
Spent the morning with Hockney at Salts Mill. Fell in love with a tree 😍
When I started co-working at Good Space in Commercial Union House we knew that one day it would be knocked down. Four years later they finally did it and this is all that remains
Up and out for a walk before the Bank Holiday crowds. Lovely and fresh after last night’s downpour
Too nice not to head out for a stroll this evening
Sunny morning run before the rest of the world gets up = a good start to a long weekend
Running through a field of cows in the middle of the city still feels like a novelty
For me Bank Holidays are about baking and beer. Bonus points this weekend for baking with beer. Spiced stout hot cross buns on the menu today 😋
For a fleeting moment this afternoon the sun reflecting off the crackle glaze on this little pot made a beautiful pattern that reminded me of marbling
Spotted my first snowdrops in the park today and was pleased to see the friendly bullfinches are back.
Roll on Spring.
More storm damage in the local parks. Grateful to have been able to stay indoors yesterday after hockey was cancelled because the goals kept blowing over!
Weekend craft project
Oh what a beautiful day
My favourite everyday loaf is Dan Lepard’s sour cream sandwich bread. Here’s my first bake of the new year https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2010/oct/02/sour-cream-sandwich-bread-recipe
The moon really didn’t disappoint
