Lemon Jelly

Lemon Jelly photoJust discovered Lemon Jelly – its upbeat, jazzy, easy listening (excuse the genre!) – Mr Scruff-ish. “This is happy music made for cosy afternoons tucked up on the sofa and if you’re looking for something that’ll give you a bit of a spring in your step, then you really couldn’t do much better.” – read more of this review and listen to a couple sample tracks on the BBC dance review page.

Food photographer I am Not!

Lamb  stewed in red wine An Autumn dinner of lamb shank stewed in red wine.
Taking photos of food ain’t easy! I’ve been making a concerted effort to photo document what i’ve been making but i’m afraid the results just don’t cut it. Taste is no problem, it looks delicious too, but the art of taking photos demands work that after cooking the meal itself i don’t have time for! So I have just one offering for you here, it is a fantastic lamb shank stew I made which was divine, but really simple – give it 2 hours in the oven in a Le Creuset dish and you cannot go wrong.

climbing the Quiraing

There is so much amazing walking and climbing to be done here on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. We did this fantastic climb up a very near vertical sheer rock face, boy was the adrenalin flowing then. But it brought us up to this beautiful soft grassy plane, inhabited only by baa-ing sheep and midges. The contrast between this mossy green grass terrain and the sharp rocks surrounding it was remarkable.
