Day three – blogging 201


I’ve been trying to give my page a fresh new look – yes the task for the day.

To begin with I was a little reluctant as I liked the look of my old page with the green header and silage bags in our field. I took the plunge and tried a few themes out. I have gone with a free one but looked a few of the paid ones too. I then spent ages trying to add ‘About’ me until the penny dropped. I just needed a break it seems…

I’m not sure I’m entirely happy with the end product but do feel it’s a step in a better direction – well for now anyhow. I need to tweak a few of the pictures from some of my other posts as they appear huge with this new theme but that’ll have to wait for another day now.

Lemon Curd



An unexpected guests turns up to stay and there’s no jam or honey for toast in the morning – agh! However, there is an easy solution as long as you have 3 eggs and 3 lemons. This is exactly what I was faced with yesterday.


200g caster sugar

100g melted butter

3 eggs

3 lemons juice and rind20151208_063451.jpg



  • Melt the butter
  • Add the sugar
  • Grate the lemon rind and squeeze out all the juice
  • Break 3 eggs on top of all the other ingredients

Mix all the ingredients together making sure that all the eggs are broken up. Simply put into the microwave on high for 3  minutes. Stop and slowly stir the mixture each minute. It should now be fairly thick and coat the back of a spoon.

Then simply pour into two small jam jars…

I’ve used this recipe time and time again and occasionally I’ve had a few disasters but (in my opinion) it’s a far better zesty taste than a shop bought jar.
