Clean Slate I think I said I'd been reading Better Than Before, and I have a whole new set of thoughts about it this time around. Whenever I start to have a good idea about something, I always venture into the kitchen to clean the cupboards, it's a bit like the Flylady shiny sink.

Risotto with Peas, Lettuce & Lemon, 16p The idea of putting cold lettuce leaves into a warm dish may seem an unusual one, but it is one of my new favourite things.

How I make photo books Lots of you have sent me questions about photo books after seeing them in my bucket list posts, so I thought maybe this warranted a separate post.
