In Grandmas kitchen .....

.... you get to make lemon curd tarts with the left-over pastry Grandma saved for you.

not too much not too little

press down gently

time for a goofy smile

cutting out the pastry

Grandma would be horrified if she knew I included this pic!
(notice the unintentionally colour co-ordinated grandparents!!)

Grandmas guiding hands :)
Its such a shame that I forgot to take photos of the tarts when they came out of the oven. They were delicious! Its also a shame that you won't eat anything like these tarts so you will never know how good they tasted :(

its my turn :)

Debs at Paper Turtle has picked me to be the next recipient of the book 'Inner Excavation' by Liz Lamoreux. This book began its journey with "Pass The Book" a book circle began by the lovely Sian over in Ireland. She passed it to Cheri who then passed it to Debs (both lovely ladies in the US) & now it will be on its way back over the Atlantic to me! How very lovely :)
Im really looking forward to reading this book!!

Changing the subject...........

.........I can't remember where this image came from but she speaks volumes don't you think?

quick update

I have been struggling along with many other people to leave comments on the blogs I am reading. This is Bloggers fault apparently ...... I wish they would hurry up & solve the problem!
So just to let you know I am reading all my faves as usual :)

I have also been getting to grips with Pinterest. Totally time consuming (as if I needed another reason NOT do do the ironing)! I have some invites left if anyone would like one? Leave your email in the comments if you do :)
