Easter biscuit inspired baked oats

I don’t often bake because I’m trying (some days harder than others) to follow slimming world. If I bake, I eat most of what comes out of the oven in one sitting! Over Easter weekend I made cornflake nests with my friend’s kids (which doesn’t really count as baking, but definitely resulted in delicious treats). […]

Etsy Shop: Open!

Hi everyone, how are you all? Just wanted to stop by and let you know that my shop (that I’ve been procrastinating about carefully planning for ages) is finally open – hurrah! If you’d like to stop by, you can find it here. And when I figure out how, there will also be a permanent […]

WiP Wed: 22nd March 2017

Why have one project on the go when you can be working on at least three (or four or five…)?! I’m loving these little hexies (pattern by Jacquie of Bunny Mummy). They’re super cute and so quick to make! I’m also experimenting with bigger hexies. I still haven’t made up my mind which version to go […]

Find me on Instagram @goslingandplumb if you’d like […]

The sound of cracking shells

Timmy and Tamara continued to care for their eggs carefully. Tamara protected the eggs and Timmy looked after Tamara, fetching anything she wanted at any hour of the day. They carefully monitored their precious eggs, looking closely at them every day to see if there were any signs of change. They longed for the day […]

Timmy’s surprise

Timmy and Tamara enjoyed married life. They spent more time together than ever, and continued to enjoy walks and games in the garden. One day, however, Timmy started to get a little worried. Tamara had been quite distant with him, and when he went to suggest they take a walk in the garden he couldn’t […]

This week…

…I took a trip to London to see ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’. It’s the funniest thing I’ve watched in ages – you really should go and see it! My brother ended up on stage propping up scenery – that’s him on the left… …I worked on week two of the Moorland Blanket on the London underground, on […]

A tale of two turtles

Friendship continued to blossom and grow between Timmy and Tamara. They saw each other every day and spent time chatting about everything under the sun. They discussed the best way to keep their shells clean, their favourite foods, world events (they were both less than pleased with the choice of the new president, and were […]

When Timmy met Tamara

Timmy often feels a bit gloomy. He’s not really miserable or grumpy, but he’s never exactly cheerful. This morning he was feeling particularly gloomy. He went for a walk to see if a visit to his favourite plant would cheer him up. He wasn’t really looking where he was going, so it took him a while […]

Timmy the Turtle

Four years ago I met this little guy. He was a little shy to begin with, but soon came out to say hello. He was fascinated by the plant, from the roots… …to the flowers. He thought the leaves were very tasty. Isn’t he a cutie? His name is Timmy and this is the very […]
