I think it's fair to say autumn has arrived now, there's leaves everywhere just waiting to be walked through and I've got my scarf and gloves ready for the cooler morning doggie walks, I'm also thinking warmer foods like soups and casseroles to keep us going.

 I've bought this charming little book of food by jessie Chorley

that has some  lovely receipes for flans, bread, soups and cakes and the "damson chutney" sounds delicious

the receipes are realy easy to follow and the illustrations are charming

"when the pie was opened the birds began to sing"

I'm going to make the damson chutney so I'll let you know how it turns out.

If you fancy a copy of Jessies book it's from

Changing the subject I've got a new mini!! A nice red one and look what was in the back seat waiting for me when I picked it up

some gorgeous autumnal flowers.

Right I'm off out for a spin in "The Fury" as Dylan has named it!!

Love Lucey xx
