Recently I’ve been...

Trying not to kill this gorgeous chilli plant given to me by a friend. I have a mixed track record with indoor plants, but love the idea of free chillies so I am doing my best. It's the orange wonder variety and is fairly hot when eaten raw, as the boyfriend discovered!


Crocheting my second granny square cushion for a friend's birthday. I finished it the morning of, oops. But she loved it, phew! And I was amazed how many other compliments it received, even from the boys!


Running... okay well this one has actually tailed off in the last week thanks to my summer cold, which is truly hideous. However I have just taken advantage of an M&S discount for a new sports bar so hopefully that help get me back on (the) track next week.


Collecting mini jam jars, what started as a joke on our holiday back in June has turned into a slight obsession. After collecting the miniature Bonne Maman jars at breakfast in our B&B each morning I'm now seeing them everywhere and feel compelled to take them home! I'm having fun deciding what to do with them though, button storage, condiment jars, candle holders... what do you think?

    1. Oh I like that idea! Another one has just appeared in the fridge at work, wondering how long until I can steal it (once it's empty of course)! xxx

  2. Wow that chilli plant is awesome, oh think of all the curries and spicy food! I always found those little jam jars cute but I could never think of anything to do with them - I hope you find a use for them, they are too sweet to throw out!

  5. I've come into this very late, but I use them for making mini container candles. They burn a surprisingly long time!
