I've been eating oatcakes all my life. It's only recently that I started to make my own.

House Work

My new attic studio is so tantalisingly close to being finished that I haven't taken any food photos in the last couple of weeks. Whilst I carry on testing and tasting recipes here are some 'before' and 'after' shots from our journey to make this home feel loved again.

We’ve Published!

For the first time I feel justified in putting an exclamation mark in the title of a post, because we have now published the first edition of our magazine! “etc.” magazine is full of articles about Derbyshire people and places, food, destinations and events. It is all put together by Deb and myself so it […]

Magazine

February 11, 2011

For the last year I have been working with Deb from fabulousplaces.co.uk on a new magazine for Derbyshire called etc. We have had a lot of fun travelling around the county, meeting people, visiting fab places, writing articles and taking photos. It is a real labour of love as every single thing that you will […]

Katie’s Cupcake Tower

On 1st December 2010 my very special friend, Katie was 40 years old. A magical masquerade ball was planned at Shottle Hall. Unfortunately due to the massive amount of snow we had in early December the party was postponed. Boo! Not to worry though as it was rescheduled to January and even more people could […]

Market Kitchen

I had a fabulous day at Optomen Studios, filming for Derbyshire Week at Market Kitchen. The show aired on Thursday 9th December at 7pm on the Good Food Channel. Leslie Jordan was a guest, he is perhaps most well known for his “Beverley’ character in Will & Grace, was the sweetest, funniest person you could ever […]

Grate new fire

November 11, 2010

Since we moved in the fire in the living room has mainly been held together with jubilee clips and hope. When the shaped fire bricks fell out of the back it was time to get it sorted properly. I took what was left of the cast iron fire grate to a local blacksmith to see if […]

Tea Loaf & Fresh Walnuts

Our friends at the Heage Firs Farm, just up the road, have a beautiful walnut tree in their garden. If it wasn’t raining quite so hard and I hadn’t got Market Kitchen heading over later today to film me making cake I would go photograph the tree plus the carpet of walnuts lying beneath it. […]

Behind the Photos

I was on the phone to Deb from FabulousPlaces.co.uk the other day, confirming details of the props we needed for a photo shoot at Amanda Hamilton’s lovely cottage in Duffield. I suddenly heard a squeal. I thought Deb had trodden on a kitten, but no, she had spotted that The Derbyshire Magazine had used one […]

Carnival 2010

Saturday 10th July was the date of 2010′s Ambergate Carnival. I was not on the committee this year having been involved in fundraising and events for Carnivals 2008 and 2009. Luckily this meant I had chance to enjoy the Circus themed day and take a few photos. The parade included juggling clowns, the colourful marching band, the […]

Bluebell Woods

I was asked to tag along on with the school kids yesterday to our local woods. We set off first thing and it looked like we had lucked out with a sunny morning. The children were tasked with writing about the outdoors and finding similes, rhymes and alliteration. Some of them set about the task very […]

Deb from Fabulous Places and I visited Chatsworth House Gardens this week. It was quite a rainy old day but we were lucky and managed to dodge most of the showers. Here is a slide show of some of my photographs:

I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently, mainly as I have been busy and taking lots of photographs. This week I have had fun playing with techniques from the lovely ladies at Coffee Shop. They have lots of great tips and tutorials but I particularly like the Photoshop actions that they write […]

Sunday Walkies

It took George and I until lunch time to get dressed and out for a walk today. That’s Sundays for you. When we finally got out the sun was shining, the trees were Autumnal and the dogster was champing at the bit. We saw some lovely toadstools and mushrooms on the way George did warn […]
