It seems lately that I'm spending all my energy just trying to keep warm. It's a real winter this year and wetter than it's been in a while. But I'm making the most of it, using all this seasons winter vegetables in warming stews and soups.

The canning mum did back in summer is paying off. I've just started using the peaches (on everything). Last night was a simple peach crumble. I had the leftovers on my porridge for breakfast this morning - very nourishing on a cold winters day and slightly cheeky.

Spending some time in the garden also, cleaning up mainly preparing the ground for next season. Will also have to start my seedlings soon.

I'm going to finish my marmalade toast now and watch the fire crackle.

The dam at full capacity.
