Going away for five days was just the ticket. I didn’t realise how much I needed it until I was in it! I relished the break from routine. We swam in the sea, walked alongside it, explored curiously, found octopus & crabs, played scrabble, (took cuttings from magnificent hydrangeas - shhhhh) & read in the sun! All the while, I found myself motivated to get back home - to make a few changes that I inhabited while away. One thing I will endeavour in the future is to plan more getaways - even if it’s for two days!
Consequently, this break has afforded much needed energy to get into some serious Christmas gift baking! Panforte, biscotti, and jam tarts are just a few of the goods I love to share at this time! #crostata #tarts #jam #christmasgiftideas #thegiftofgiving #sharing #merrychristmas
