self preservation



hearing such awful news from Japan about the Fukushima plant, has started me thinking how lovely it would be to not have to damage the world, just for the sake of plugging in our laptop and hairdryers etc...
Imagine just growing our own food, making our own clothes and living the simple life, I pondered. Of course, people already did this hundreds of years ago, and they had hard lives and died young. 
So, my happy medium is to plant a few spring onions and a couple of beetroot in the garden and then have a nice cuppa tea.


...in actual fact, we had a luncheon fit for a king {or a queen ahem ahem}. Nao made mackerel pate for the first time and we downed it with hot buttered toast and a lovely salad. Accompanied with a refreshing tipple of white wine generously bestowed to us from our neighbour up stairs.

I then drunkenly planted up some fleurs too {cause eye candy is important for survival too}...

please note that everything is in tubs. This is because we have a rented garden...oh humm...
