Larva, chocolate spread and mouthful.

How Publishing Really Works is one of my favourite writing blogs for its wise advice. Jane marked her first birthday on Sunday with a blog pitch party. Go over and make some new friends.

1. There is a caterpillar on one of our roses. He emerges from a den deep in the scented heart of a Gertrude Jekyll. He is mottled and splotted in handsome python colours. I try to tempt him off with a piece of lettuce -- but judging by the nibbled petals, he prefers flowers to leaves.

2. Chocolate spread sandwiches.

3. As we are leaving the house, he puts a big piece of toffee in my mouth.


  1. were you talking when he popped the toffee in!

  2. Choco spread with Nutella. mmmmm

  3. Years ago I lived in a flat on Willesden High Road, and nearby was a tiny grocery shop which sold perfectly glazed, crisp puff pastry rolls (like sausage rolls) which were filled with Nutella. They were delicious: I lived on them for months. Since I moved away I've not been able to find them anywhere but oh, they were wonderful!

    Thank you for linking to my blog: I'm glad you like it, and hope to see you there more often. Your blog is delightful and I will come back again soon.
