Sending lots of love to you all,
from Simeon and Laura

We've just moved house, now living in Woodford, still London, but not quite so central. We're enjoying being closer to the forest. 


George the swan lives in a lake nearby. We'd never seen a black swan before!

Have got into making Grandma Thomas's saffron buns recently...

1lb flour

4oz sugar

4 oz dried fruit

4 oz butter

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp yeast

Approx 0.5g saffron

Rub the butter into the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Soak the saffron in some hot water, once it's warm use it to bind the other ingredients together. Knead and add the fruit, then leave to prove in a covered bowl for at least a few hours. Cook at 180 degrees for around 12 minutes

Pretty much moved in now, just need to get some more photos on the walls, so thought I'd draw some in the meantime.
