A soothing sip for colds and flu

breakfast by the sea

If you’re suffering from a cold then I’ve got just the thing to pep you right up. This infusion is so simple to make and includes a huge kick of ginger, a squeeze of fresh lemon and a good spoonful of delicious soothing honey. Sadly this drink won’t cure your cold, but it will fill your sickly bod with lots of lovely natural ingredients. It tastes pretty good too!


Shoreline wanderings

OP9C8850_bWe walk across the beach, the wind almost taking our breath away. The light is harsh and dazzling, reflecting off the ripples in the wet sand. Kite surfers race across the waves, backlit by the sun. We watch them for a while, imagining the thrill of speed, until the sun dips behind a cloud and we turn and make our way slowly back across the beach.


Cinnamon rock cakes

This post was inspired by a recent trip to Rye in East Sussex. The weather that day was absolutely bitter – they type of cold that really gets into your bones, so a hot mug of tea and a decent piece of cake are pretty much essential. I stopped in a lovely little cafe but I was in such a rush to get the train back that I didn’t pay much attention to the name – whoops!


Quiet Time

The days are finally starting to get longer again. That makes me very happy indeed. I keep waking up early though, normally about an hour before I actually need to get up, and just as the birds are starting to stir.

Snow days

The snow is falling heavily in Brighton today. It’s the kind of day when you want to be snuggled up warm and cosy at home with a hot drink, a warm blanket and plenty of nice things to eat. Funnily enough, that is exactly what I plan to do!

I hope you’re warm wherever you are.
