I have read it's the king of breads. 

Sourdough bread starter from

It bubbles and grows this sourdough starter, IT'S ALIVE!

Sourdough starter 55 years old
Now I have to let it rise for 12 hours. This means I will be taking it out of the oven at 11.30 tonight, lesson learned, always read recipes all the way to the end before you start!

Lay a little egg for me... and she has.

We hatched  one lonely little chick back in July last year. I did not think we would get any eggs from her till February this year but on the 28th December she laid an amazing dark brown egg.

It' oh so quiet.

It's my husband first day back at work today and it is so quiet in the house. I do love the start of the new year. I have a new coat, bag and shoes and I am ready for whats to come. I am not making any new years resolutions this year, but I am thinking of making a list of things I don't want, and I am going to pin it up next to my computer.

I wanted to share few things I made for christmas gifts for my family and friends.

Holly berry hunting.

Holly berry hunting around the garden this morning and only found a few, which was a bit disappointing as there were so many last year, I will have to make my berries for my christmas wreath this year. 

Sorry could not resisted taking my little gingerbread men along! I did find some hawthorn berries with beautiful water droplets hanging off them. Don't you think they look like little  berry chandeliers?
