I've been making marmelade! I can't work out yet how (if possible) I can just copy a post at my new blog over here, so I'll just post the link to there for now -

So, I stopped blogging here a while back, as I suddenly realised I could let myself just let it go. For pretty much the whole past year I kept hoping I would suddenly hit my stride and get as good and consistent as I hoped to be. But it turned out to be more like this: I'd plan posts then make made-up dishes that didn't quite work and then feel disappointed, I'd keep writing lists of what I wanted to make and blog and never quite find the time to do it. I'd take a load of pictures in a restaurant when I wanted to just be eating and then never get round to writing about it. I constantly felt like I should be better at this and doing more...

I don't have that much access to the internet and I don't have that much time to cook at the moment. I also realised I feel more pleased if I can just make some kind of dinner every night and it is enjoyable and uses up what needs to be used up, rather than attempting experimental or ambitious things that require one-off purchases and too much washing up...

So, at some point, I thought: I don't have to keep holding this over me like something I have to do - I can take a break.

Which is what I'm doing.

UPDATE 16th March - The blogging urge is too strong! I have started up a new blog on a bit of a tangent. There'll still be some food involved, but also some craftiness and a little about trying to live less wastefully and more resourcefully. When I do food-related posts I will cross post here so LS will keep going albeit slowly! Please do come over and see me in my new home!

And thank you, as always, for reading x
