TTB

So it's November... not sure quite how that happened so quickly. I'm working like a Trojan and have a back-load of around 2,500 images to edit in my "free time". Yikes.

Willy and I bought a caravan! I've named it "The Tetanus Box" or "TTB" because I'm pretty sure that you can catch Tetanus just by looking at it. Willy's hard at work fibreglassing the inside at the moment and I'm feeling pretty useless, but I'm sure my time will come.


She/He/It needs almost all of the windows replaced and once it's been fibreglassed it'll be a box that needs EVERYTHING put back in. I'm thinking that this may take quite some time...

Pita's!!

Pita Pit has made me remember how much I LOVE Pita Bread and when I stumbled across a recipe for them at about 6am yesterday, I couldn't resist! The link to the original recipe is below, however I did change it up a wee bit as I made the dough in the breadmaker, and then baked them rather than microwaving.



Wholemeal Pita Bread
 
3c Wholemeal Flour
1.25c Warm Water
0.5 tbsp Yeast
1.5 tbsp Olive Oil
0.5 tbsp Salt
Pinch of Sugar.

Set breadmaker to it's "dough" setting, and add half of the warm water, the pinch of sugar, and the full measure of yeast. Leave for a few minutes.

Add the rest of the ingrediants - other half of the warm water, flour, olive oil and salt. Start the breadmaker, and leave to run it's cycle (must be on the "dough" setting!! Otherwise you'll end up with a loaf!).

Preheat your oven to 250c Fan Bake, and line your trays with baking paper.

Split the resulting dough into 6 balls, flour, and leave to rest for a few minutes.

Roll out each of the balls to a circle around 0.25 of an inch. I baked mine 2 to a tray, 1 tray at a time, for approximately  7 minutes a pop.

Celeste - PREGNANT?!




What happens when you live in a household of creatives... Sunday afternoon faux maternity shots. Very rough, planning a reshoot, but all in all an immensely enjoyable little project.

Arts and Crafts.





Turns out I hoard mail and souvenirs. Trying to get them on display so that I can enjoy them everyday instead of once in a blue moon when I pull them out. It's a slow process - especially since I broke the glass for this frame just as I finished putting it together!
