Another find from a before-mentioned trip to Deptford Market, complete with much-used blotting paper. My spelling skills are on the up!
PS. between houses and everything packed up, so I can't tell you the adorable name and date written very carefully in the front of the book, but I will when I can fish it out of a box next week. New home pictures coming soon!

A slice of the below-mentioned cake (which is here because it colour co-ordinates) and a find from a recent trip to Deptford Market. I just love the pattern on the endpapers of this poor old beat up book cover, so am hatching a plan to bind in a nice thick notebook and make it useful again. The only question is: patterned bit on the inside or outside?

Today Sarah made brioche and I made jam - a bit of damson, and a bit of blackberry and apple. We picked them in the garden of the house we will be moving to at the end of the month, where hopefully I can finally settle into somewhere!
The blackberries were huge and just so juicy. What with all the mental weather this summer everything is very early, fruit-wise. Freaky deaky but yummy. I think I gave you my favourite jam recipe once before, long ago in another kitchen!

Aren't quails eggs pretty? Can't really bring myself to eat them though. I don't really like eggs, which is annoying if you're vegetarian, really limits your options out and about. This week I have been mostly drinking ginger beer and eating great big cheap tomatoes from the Turkish shop across the road.
