Feels a little strange wiring the blog on a thursday when I'm so used to settling down on a friday to do so... but I'm super excited to be off to London with weekend to a friends wedding and to London Craft Week!

We've been pretty busy this week, on monday we entered some pieces into the Local agricultural show in Nefyn. 

Tom proudly won the wood working category with his Oak whisky barrel spoon. 

Wednesday evening saw my tv debut on welsh cookery program Cegin Bryn! Last year Bryn came to the house to do some gluten free cooking, then a few weeks later i headed down to London to cook with him at his restaurant! it was quiet the experience! 

The program is online here for the next few days if you'd like to catch up on it, lots of gluten free recipes and lots of Glosters pottery shots too!
