Internet finally connected, rejoining 21st century

Whoaaa, sorry for the epic pause! I moved back in July and it’s taken this long to get the internet up and running – unbelievable in this day and age. Anyhoo, can’t give a massive update now, as I’ve just got back from my cousin’s wedding and have to return my bf’s suit that he hired, as well as deal with a sinkful of washing up and get some food in, but here are some photos in lieu of news, and I shall fill you in on my craft projects and the garden and the other green things I’ve been doing this summer, all in good time.

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there.

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
