So last weekend, we bought a kooky looking acorn squash from a food festival. Mmmm, roasted in the oven, delish you might say. But no... it tasted DISGUSTING! Not a little bit disgusting... full on the most foul tasting bitterest thing on the earth disgusting. So much so, we luckily didn't even manage more than a tiny taste. Whilst our mouths and lips were burning, we googled 'disgusting tasting squash' as you do, and found out that sometimes, on rare occasions, squashes can turn all weird and produce a toxic poison that could actually be deadly. Mmmm... nice one. The taste lasted for over a day. I keep having taste flashbacks.
So, the moral of this cautionary Autumn tale is....
Beware of evil squashes everyone.

October's here. How'd that happen? I'm not quite finished with September yet. I haven't got anything to wear. It's cold... come back Summer. (Don't worry, I do this every single year... you have to drag me into Autumn Winter kicking and screaming. Yes, I know Autumn's so pretty with falling leaves and stuff, I just don't enjoy the cold or shorter days. I like skipping about in shorts outside at 9pm eating strawberries. I actually don't think I really do this but I know you definitely can't do it in the Winter and it's annoying! 
ON the plus side though, I've got another busy month, it's all go. I've been working with some amazing people recently and I've got lots of ideas in the pot. Shorter days mean I'll sit at my desk more so that's all good for the hard worker in me. :-)

You've got to love a few days of foxes. I think the collective term is a funkadella of foxes.

Oops!



I've just noticed my website is not working, and have since discovered my domain name didn't renew as it should. Hopefully it will be back up in the next couple of days. 
In the meantime, if you want to get in contact please email

Many thanks and sorry about that, I'm a bit rubbish with this kind of stuff! :-)

It's still nice but there's a little bit of Autumn in the air isn't there. 
Plus side, I don't mind working so much when it's grey and chilly.

Quick little plant whatever for a warm up today, thought I'd share it on here. Might make this into a bigger pattern when I have a spare mo.

You've got to love the Summer holidays for the constant ball juggle and the pure fact that work and children off school do not mix... AT ALL. I feel guilty for working and guilty for not working. 
In the back of my head, I've been thinking that, in a few years, my children will think I'm boring and won't want to hang out with me at all so I should allow myself some precious moments while I have them. I hope everyone will forgive me if things are taking a little longer than usual to get done. Normal service will be resumed in September, I promise! :-)
