I say, tomatoes?

No, this is not a hacker - it is I!!! Ginger! (I have to be her, because that makes me Ginger Rogers!)

Motivated by your refusal to let the blog die (and rightly so!), I have found the time and, indeed, the inspiration to post something. Actually, I have a few things I want to share with you, though some are projects-in-process, so you can look forward to a couple of 'before-and-afters' in the future.

First though, I want to introduce you to my new friend, Tracey.

Christmas came early for Clan Pryor-Rogers and Santa was generous enough to bring me Tracey (as in Moffatt!), a Canon EOS 1000D. He also brought me an ice-cream maker, Simon an iPad and Milly a dolls house, so it's a very quiet house at the moment, as we all play with our new toys.

Tracey's job will be to help me find the time and motivation to keep you updated with all domestic activities happening on this side of the pond. Though, of course, she will also help reunite us in just under a month's time, when she snaps us in the same frame!

Today, Tracey and I want to share with you my new kitchen garden.

It's early days, but the hanging tomato planters have already yielded a harvest.

The herbs are from top left, coriander, sage, oregano, thyme, rosemary and basil. The coriander didn't last a week, but it was an
ambitious thought to begin with. I'll replace it will something a bit hardier.

Feeling very good about getting something done outside of work!! And the fact it involved power tools made it all the greater!

Glad to hear you got home from Dublin despite the snow. I look forward to your pics. I wish I had some summery shots to contrast them, but the weather here is rubbish and as you can see from this photo from this morning, it looks more like July than November.

I think we chose a good December to come to the UK, as it seems Sydney will offer little more than rain and disappointment for most of summer!

Counting down the days.

All my love,
S. x
