At the far end of an old quarry near us, long since returned to grassland, you can climb a hill and walk the whole length of the field through this tunnel of trees. In summer, the canopy lets dappled light temporarily blind you as you step between light and shade, and in winter, it's a twinkly, frosty wonderland with bare branches curling around you as you crunch through the tunnel. I must remember to get a picture. All this magic, right on our doorstep! 🍃✨ #chilterns #thingsthatmakemehappy #sunlight #treestagram #sundappled
This week, I'm teaming up with the lovely chaps at @snafflingpigco, makers of yummy flavoured pork crackling. I've created some pretty scrummy recipes with their fab new product, Crackling Crumb - delicious Snaffling Pig pork crackling, minus the seasoning, ground into a crumb so that it can be used to add a delicious crunch to all sorts of meals, and I've also got a range of The Snaffling Pig Co products to give away!  I'm starting with this crunchy brunchy breakfast burger. Pop over to the blog for more info, recipes and to enter the fab giveaway! Hand model and chief recipe tester: @urbanswordfish 😊 #cracklingcrumb
Sunday morning snuggles are the best ♥️
Dogs can be trained to do amazing things: they can detect illness, sniff out illegal substances, find people trapped in rubble... Mine can't do any of that, but if there's a ripe blackberry within sniffing distance, she'll have pinched it before you've even reached the bush. At this time of year, she's about 80% blackberry 😊#whippetlove #whippetsofinstagram #earlyautumn
I miss this beautiful place every day. So many things are changing all the time: I feel I should pop over once a month or so just to keep track of things 😬💙✨#fbf #cinderellacastle #magickingdom

How perfect is this Scotch egg from the 1838 restaurant at the De Vere Latimer Estate? A thing of beauty, delicious, and vegetarian too. Head to the blog to read all about our visit to one of the finest - and most fascinating - stately homes in the Chilterns. #traveltuesday #yum #deverelatimerestate #vegetarian #chilterns
Spent a delightful day yesterday pretending to be lady of the manor at the De Vere Latimer Estate, just outside Chesham in Buckinghamshire. The estate, complete with historic mansion house and conference centre has just finished a £7m refurbishment project and it's a stunning place to visit. The beautiful Tudor style mansion house was built in 1838 and during WW2 was known as The Spy House as it played a similar top secret information gathering role to Bletchley Park. Suits me, no? I keep telling Mr E we need to upgrade but will he listen?! #deverelatimerestate #latimer #chesham #chilterns #lovelocal
