Friday's Letter




Dear Day,

You've been pretty awesome so far.  Three tickets for the price of one in the car park so I was able to dish out 'free parking' to a couple of (very grateful) people.  And the lovely man in Carluccio's gave me two tablespoons of amaretto in a takeaway espresso cup for my peach jam so I didn't have to buy a giant bottle. A sweet friend also texted me to say the (designer!) top she found yesterday at a charity shop doesn't suit her and would I like it.  Yes please!  Love it when the universe plays the pay it forward game!

My peach jam is bubbling away, my house smells divine and although it's currently raining we are promised a lovely weekend.

It's the small acts of kindness and the simplest of things that really kind of rock, no?

Love, Me

  7. I am flabbergasted and thrilled to be the giveaway winner! Woo-hoo! Doing the happy dance here in Ohio. Thank you for your "paying it forward" generosity and for starting off my weekend with a bang. Glad you have had such a wonderful week, full of those small acts of kindness that somehow expand into something very big. Love the "jam-in-progress" image - beautifully styled and shot.

  8. It's summertime for sure! I was just visiting at another blog where the writer was dealing with an abundance of apricots. I suggested that adapt this recipe for raspberry crumble bars to her fruit du jour--you might try it too, especially since you are making jam (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/raspberry-crumble-bars-recipe/index.html).
