    I usually shy away from posting photos of myself but pictures speak louder than words don’t they. I’m a very lucky girl :o)

    Congratulations to you both, you make a lovely couple!
    I have made the passatta from the recipe which you emailed, it was simple and smells gorgeous so I cannot wait to test it in a lasagne.One of the things I remember about trips to Italy was the intense tomato taste of the pasta dishes.

    Awww, bless.

    I would make silly comments about ‘good job I’m not 20 years younger’ and all that, but he just wouldn’t be happy with anyone but you.

    Peggy – glad the passatta worked well. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

    Amy – I agree …

    Bilbo – ..and with you too 😮

Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.

#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
