Brief bloglet

Just a little blogging today- time is at a premium here at the moment-not least because I have been practising in my two dance classes for performances this Saturday night, I am trying to write a 50,000 word novel (trying being the operative word.) I seem to have a lurgy of some kind and the business is a mixture of small problems and thriving well. I have been making my own ciabatta which needs work but is delicious and also my own doughnuts.YUM...
 Have a look at this site for easy Ciabatta and check the homemade doughnuts I made! Fried in olive oil and surprisingly non greasy and light ( I tried a cake based recipe but they were nasty and greasy and stodgy- go the yeast based ones!) the recipe for these ones can be found here. The garden is growing well but so are the weeds and it is a battle to keep up. Random potatoes have sprung up in many places and pumpkin plants have started to appear. We also seem to be growing corn where the chicken ark was, the result of my darling little boys pouring the jar of kernels on the none to clean floor and consequently the chickens benefitted. It will be interesting to see if it grows!
I am have been planting and had a birthday and not had an existential crisis but I will see if I can cover anything that still seems interesting at later date!
