Snow on my birthday!

It was snowing on the day I was born but I don’t think I have witnessed it on this day since. In any case, it didn’t stop play today.

We did a baking class with Lovely Loaves, which meant we not only got to see countryside which was new to us (in Lincolnshire) but came home with a bag of hot cross buns, Easter biscuits and ciabatta.

Again, it was strange to be making Easter goodies when temperatures have stayed below zero all day. Fortunately, spring flowers such as daffodils seem to be bearing up, even if smothered in snow.

And the bokashi bin back at home, which is also celebrating its birthday, has more fodder from my parents. It’s still one of the best presents I bought myself, as I can use all kitchen waste to fertilise the soil.


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
