Each Friday (or thereabouts)! I will endeavour to post things of interest that have grabbed my attention throughout the previous seven days. Things to inspire, fascinate, educate and generally get you buzzing.
- More than 5 trillion pieces of plastic float around in the world's oceans, this is where our plastic waste arrives - Shocking but true.
- ... And one of the culprits: Did you know your coffee pods are un-recyclable.
- 2015 is going to be the UN Year of Soils - 'Healthy soils for a healthy life'.
- The picture above is of some delicious marshmallows I made using our Pine Syrup, they were extra delicious floating in a coffee made with a shot of my homemade Bailey's (Irish Cream). Then I came across these - Yum!
- I tell myself every year, that I'm going to make Eggnog, I still haven't, This is the year!
- I was delighted this evening to come across this 17 Instagram accounts to follow in 2015 - Two amzing women who were a part of the Lens & Larder workshop that I was involved in, Skye McAlpine and Beth Kirby.
- Love what This Is What We Do do.
Today is a good day - Some days aren't so good, others are middle of the road and sometimes you stumble and find yourself in the middle of a great day - Today is one of those great days.
I spent part of the day in Galway with my girl, looking at lights and trees, the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a four year old is humbling. Then I came across my name in one of the national newspapers, I'm so honoured and delighted to have the wonderful Donal Skehan endorsing America Village Apothecary - Thank You Universe for the great days!
