So Bramble & Pumpkin are fast growing into full sized cats now, I thought I’d share some recent photos of them with you. Everyone likes cat photos, right?
We left out grill pan out to wash after cooking bacon on Sunday morning. Came back to it at lunch time to wash it, only to find some cheeky little bastard had discovered a taste for bacon grease… nice!
Like last Christmas, we spent a good deal of time in our brand new kitchen in the winter of ’09 creating tastey treats for our families for part of their Christmas gifts. This year we upped the ante a little and added some new things, jazzed up old things and got bigger and better than before!
This year our gift boxes included
Luxury Christmas Puddings (with walnuts, cranberries and stuffed full of booze and fruit)
Spiced apple chutney
Piccalilli (I hate, hate, hate shop bought piccalilli but the recipe we use is sooo good!)
Green Tomato Chutney (using the last of our home grown tomatoes)
Sweet Chili Jam
Dark chocolate dipped cinder toffee
Pear wine (made with pears from my parent’s garden)
Plum mead (made with plums from my parent’s garden)
Here was the labelling assembly line on Christmas eve, I designed the labels in the morning and we set to packaging everything up in the afternoon…
Hopefully I’ll have chance to write up some of the recipes before summer this time ;)
Hey there! I’m Kim. I help creative businesses and brands discover their online potential. I offer creative services, guides & other resources to help you elevate your position online! Keep up with my blog posts for insights into living and working a creative life. Also, swearing.
“Working with Kim has been the best decision I have made since starting a blog in the first place. She is always on top of her emails (seriously this woman must be glued to her computer) and whenever I have a panic moment I know she’ll go above and beyond to reply as soon as humanly possible to fix the situation.
Not only is she professional, but she’s got serious skill and an eye for what’s hot in the design world. I am a *slight* control freak, so I was a bit scared of never meeting face-to-face and having all communication go through email, but Kim made me feel cool, calm and collected. The only regret I have is that I didn’t get Kim to help me out sooner!”
