Marmalady the Super-hero!!

On checking my emails at bedtime last night, I had a Google-alert to this fantastic cartoon image!

I love the picture and as I had just finished making 40 lb of marmalade it felt very apt! It often feels like I am collecting all the jam-jars in the world (I certainly have a garage-full and frequently find bags of them left in my front porch!)
On poking around the site, it turns out that the artist is another Etsian : .
He does screen-printed T-shirts, so maybe I will commision a T-shirt of the picture to wear at my Markets
Super-hero Marmalady (and many other super-heroes) can be found here:

April -- the fool returns!

I have finally got around to returning to my poor neglected blog! I hope I will keep up with it better than before but who knows?

Yesterday I started a diet, but disappointingly the scales hadn't changed this morning! I am determined to lose at least a stone by the end of the month, so when I go to Tesco's this morning will be stocking up on fruit, veg, salads and such-like healthy stuff!

What else has been happening since I last blogged? Not much --my life does not alter very much!

Etsy sales of my baking continue to do well -- I have now been on Etsy for a year and have made over 200 sales --which works out at an average of 4 a week.

I have also opened a separate shop for my crafts --I felt they were overlooked amongst the baking , particularly by international people who only saw I did not ship baking overseas. So far I have only made 1 sale - to a fellow UK'er --but its a start!
