All in a days work. Road testing a range of rolling pins for @bbcgoodfood - yes there are many to choose from. Obviously needed to make pastry so that is now turned into pies, quiche, and several batches frozen down for later. It’s really soothing work, so good when feeling frazzled which happens when you have a sick parent to fret over. The doors to the garden are open, the sun is shining, there’s a good programme on @bbcradio4 chattering away in the background and I can hear a noisy blackbird up on the roof singing his head off too. I may not be saving the planet but I do love most aspects of my work. What’s not to love when it’s as varied as this and I can imagine my husbands happy face when he cops for this meat pie 🤣🤣🤣.
Spurred on by @annicemacleodphotographs I decided to come out too. This is the first time I entered and I nearly fainted when I got the e-mail last week. This famous international competition had 10,000 entries so to be shortlisted is so awesome, but I have kept quiet about it, I only told my sister, husband and one of my bestest friends initially. So here I am and still feel shy about it because some of the photographers are utterly awesome, but I am just a little bit proud 😊
