Nottinghamshire Strawberries, Homely Treats and my New Fat Finger

Hello lovelies. All has been rather quiet on the blog-front, this week. Unfortunately, I had a bit of a run-in with a blender and am therefore having difficulty typing. All is well and I still have all five fingers on both hands, it's just that one of them is now rather fat and cumbersome in its new, highly stylish (ahem) outfit. The Ginge has been teasing me, quite rightly so; a) for being so stupid and b) for doing it just as I had painted my nails for the first time in years - can you tell that I am writing a dissertation? The procrastinator in me is vying to get out! Anyway, what I can still do is take photographs, albeit rather clumsily, with my fat finger sticking up perpendicular-like. Here are just a few of the lovely things that have cheered me up this weekend. Delicious local fruit and veg from the Green Grocer; fennel, strawberries, broad beans, parsley, all in a box, so much better than a bag. I imagined it was a wicker basket, all the way home. Colour-coordinated nail varnish and bandage. Not intentional, but rather pleasing. My new blueberry and acai tea, looking and tasting delicious in one of my birthday mugs from the Ginge's sister. Very lady-like. Extra large eggs, glowing in a shard of sunlight, with a wispy little feather quivering on top. Simple things. Simple me. Simply splendid. 


  1. poor finger... hope it mends soon and get backs to normal finger size..

    lovely photos.. so fresh and light and health inspiring!

  2. Thank you, it is getting better by the day and I have downsized to a smaller bandage, making life much more straightforward. Very flattered that you like the photos too! x


I love to read your comments & hope you have a lovely day!
