I know that I've been a bit quiet lately but I've been head down, learning stuff and making things. The book fairy has been dropping presents off nearly every week (much to my horror when I remind myself that I am supposed to be saving money, not spending), but I am only getting books which add to my store of knowledge;
Artisan bread in five minutes a day
The big book of preserving the harvest
Made another batch of feta and ricotta today, gervais a few days ago, kim chee pickles in the crock (The Husband didn't fancy sauerkraut but liked the idea of kim chee), jams coming out of my ears and three amazing master batches of dough from the artisan bread book. It's no wonder I've not had time for blogging.
I sort of did a stupid thing on Tuesday as well. My Graves Disease is really playing up at the moment but I had an energy burst on Tues. That small burst of energy was enough to get me out into the garden to overhaul one of the strawbale beds (the one which totally fried in the heatwave). Yeah, yeah I paid for it on Wednesday as I could barely get out of bed :( So here we go, it's now Friday and I haven't finished a job which should have taken me only a couple of hours.
Did anyone hear the news in Perth last night? Electricity prices are set to increase 50% over the next few years. Really makes me glad that we now have this
Hopefully our PV panels and the solar HWS will keep our bills manageable.
