Last night we had our book group meeting here so I got to choose the book for this month. This is an amazing book about a woman who relates to animals more than people. She’s a brilliant scientist but writes like a dream.

One copy is mine, one for Allison who has twin 6 month old babies, wild 4 year old twin boys and an autistic 7 year old. It was the least I could do for her! The other is for Dawn who is as close to a daughter as you can get without sharing DNA. My other friends will probably get the book on their devices as most read that way.

The recipe is from an ancient Fanny Farmer cookbook, stained and well loved with old fashioned recipes that taste like my childhood.

Thanks DB! With this cookbook, I now know how to make one… with a spatula and a ladle.

May 25th, 2008 – Brussels, Belgium

I’m not quite finished with my New York shots, but I think I need a break from them – and you probably do too. So I thought I’d post this, which I took in Brussels last weekend. I’m really torn between this black and white version – it has something of the classic street photography feel to it, I think, especially in the blurred movement of the little girl – and the colour version, which quite apart from anything else allows us to see the red-and-white-polka-dotted bathing cap of the rather splendid lady swimmer.

[PS The beady-eyed amongst you – you know who you are – will spot that the black and white version is ever-so-slightly cropped and ever-so-slightly straightened. Not sure why. It just is.]

No, I’m not planning to write a book, but I thought this looked nice. See the Cooking set for the original pictures.

People have been asking if I just took the pictures. For the record, I took the pictures and also did considerable part of the cooking.

THE DREAM OF A GIRL WHO LIVEDAT SEVEN-OAKS By William Brighty Rands Seven sweet singing-birds up in a tree;Seven swift sailing ships white upon the sea;Seven bright weathercocks shining in the sun;Seven slim race-horses ready for a run;Seven gold butterflies, flitting overhead;Seven red roses blowing in a garden-bed;Seven white lilies, with honey-bees inside them;Seven round rainbows with clouds to divide them;Seven pretty little girls with sugar on their lips;Seven witty little boys whom everybody tips;Seven nice fathers, to call little maids joys;Seven nice mothers, to kiss the little boys;Seven nights running I dreamt it all plain;With bread and jam for supper I could dream it all again! 40 POEMS FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES 41 THE TWO COUNTRIES BY JANE MARSH PARKER IN THE VALLEY OF DILLY-DALLY
