yours truly is back...

1. Oh yes, I'm back! Or maybe you guessed that already?

2. Refreshing. The word I would use for my blogging-break.
It gave me the time I needed.

3. My sister had a birthday while I was on my break, so please shout out a happy birthday to her!
It was a day full of goodness. A post on that later.

4. I have something deliciously exciting to share with you all.
Deliciously, scrumptiously, delightfully exciting.

5. Can any of you guess what it is?

6. Potatoes from your own garden are good.
Very good.

7. How do you like the new design?

8. So, I like pegs (or 'piigs', which is how I pronounce them, being a Kiwi).
Yup. Pegs are good.

9. Me + food photography = one, big, huge problem.
I am so bad at food photography! I blame it on not having a 35mm lens (or a DSLR for that matter).
Yup. That works for me.
Any tips?

10. English country side is too cute sometimes.
But it's getting cold! Like, cold, cold, cold. Summer, you have deserted me. How could you?!

P.S. The giveaway is ending soon! We have 190 entries! Can we make it to 200? 
Just because 200 looks way better than 190. Right.


  1. Love your new design! :) It looks great!

    Happy Belated Birthday to your sister! ;)

  2. I LOVE THE DESIGN! Did you draw it?

    I don't take shots of food - I just eat it ..... I love my food far too much Jess! and those tatties look yummy straight from the garden. I really like that shot of the dill aswell.

    I'm visiting from Carlotta's blog, to see your 'spot the Bloggers' thing... Your sisters drawings are incredible!!! Is she on Etsy? She could most definitely sell those!
