Was trying to upload photos, but can only upload 10 at a time. So attached my 10 favourites and the rest of the photos are now on my Flickr account:
A few years ago, myself and two friends moved into a shared flat in London during a very cold February.
We soon discovered, when we didn't have any gas for cooking nor heating, that the previous tenants had failed to pay their gas bill and done a runner.
It took a week to sort out, so I...
We had a lovely time at the winter moot, too. My toddler made 4 new friends and ran totally feral every day.

I decided to take the cooking theme and run with it, so attempted the following menu, and we stocked up on sacks of...
1. Wayne Jones. Deer, rabbit, pigeon.
2. Paul Smyth
3. Tony (goodjob Wayne!)
4. Matt (Lithril)
5. Ian P rabbit deer, pigeon
6. Andy (Broch) deer
7. Susannah Deer, pigeon. I'm interested in squirrel if you're bringing them Andy.
We had a brilliant time, too. Our little tot enjoyed shooting arrows with dada, I managed to make him a crochet hat and we all enjoyed the fantastic company as well as the moments of quiet contemplation in such a beautiful setting. I was particularly surprised and captivated by discovering...

In seriousness, it's a way to weave straps (eg Belts, guitar straps, dog leads or similar). But I'll not be running official workshops at this moot, just have my kit with me and can give a few pointers to interested folk and plenty of coloured threads if anyone wants a go.
I'd personally like...

I spiced up the pastry to try and make something different, if not nicer, than the shop bought mince pies.
The buttery pastry I made was proportions like this recipe: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1813664/mince-pies%3famp but with added zest of orange.
There are some pretty good ready-made mince pies out there these days, so has anyone got a recipe that makes it really worthwhile making your own?
I've been experimenting with very short (buttery) pastry flavoured with sugar and orange zest, which is pretty good. Haven't made my own mincemeat...
