That’s a wrap

The garden is whispering to me,

the kids want to go swimming,

the dog wants a run,

and I’ve got a reading pile the length of two arms.

Thanks for taking the time to hangout in 2016 dear readers. I’m really looking forward to seeing what next year brings but also keen to see how much garden time, swims, dog runs and reading I can squeeze into the now.

2016 saw a bundle of different topics covered here, so I thought I’d do a quick recap before I’m lost to the wilds of the kids, go swimming with the dog and spend time reading the garden, (or something like that.)

Something that plays an important part of my life, The Kindness Exchange or The Gift Economy, and also loved ones that remind me to make time for what matters.

Gluten free cooking got a look in with the Buckwheat Pancakes and Chickpea Pancakes becoming family favourites.

Setting up a whole new garden this year meant I was now focussing on Soldier Fly LarvaeSlug Problems and how to set up and maintain your Compost. Along with planting some of the Best Flowers to grow for you and your Bees (and a little extra bee love information here.)

My poor misguided children gagged their way through Spinach and Fetta Bread and for the sourdough bakers out there, something you might find handy, a how to Dehydrate your Starter and bring it back to LIFE again tutorial.

While I adore playing with words, sometimes it’s just about the pictures, like a mini winter break, staying in the Hunter Valley which was lovely, and good reminder to do things you love, like How to be Creative with Kids Around (or how to milk the day for everything it has.)

There were lots more posts throughout the year if you are still keen to do more reading and if not, instead, you intend taking some time off to spend with loved ones, dig your fingers in the soil and bake tray loads of traditional Scandinavian treats (surely not just me??) Well, enjoy that time dear people.

See you in January!
