Finally up and running!

Gosh, this has been a mission! With the camera fixed and time to spare I'm finally getting going!

 I've been busy planting out the veges, having raised everything from seed this year in my little greenhouse...

I've put in an orchard ( in pots so we can move them to our farm in a few years),

I've made lemon honey and 12 big bottles of lemon cordial for summer.....

                           I've knitted cosy merino socks for me...


  And lots of kids knits to sell!

I have a stall at the Waterloo School Xmas Fair tomorrow night, Pinehaven School Gala on Saturday, and have booked a table for the Stokes Valley Xmas Parade and Market Day on the 4th December.
Lots of vests, shrugs, ponchos and waistcoats in modern designs and this year's trendy colours (sorbet colours for the girls, greens and terracottas for the boys!)

I need to have a day off knitting on Friday and do the groceries and the baking.
This is my favourite bikkie recipe for when I'm really in a hurry...........
I make them every week with a different addition and you'd never know! I know the basic recipe by heart now.

A.S.A.P. Biscuits

150g butter                                                     1 cup sugar
1 egg                                                              2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder                                       flavouring extras (see below....)

Melt the butter, then whisk in the sugar and egg.
Add Baking powder and flour.
Add your extras - about a cup's worth.......
Roll into balls, flatten and put onto lined trays.
Bake at 180C for 15-20 mins.
