After an amazing European holiday and crazy busy months leading up to it, I’m back!

Key holiday takeaways:

  • It’s time to get those herbs on the balcony: parsley, rosemary and thyme are critical with our eating habits… maybe some mint and basil too. Starting with a Pinterest board to capture the best way to use our space, and will then source to grow. Oh, and that will feed my interest in medicinal uses of herbs.
  • Gin. Get onto it. Starting to like it. Had a simple drink the other night with gin, a little water and fresh cucumber. And I plan to purchase a bottle of The Botanist gin as a nice starting point to learn how to enjoy this drink more.
  • City of London… Madeira… And other tax havens. Currently reading Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World. What a great read and real eyeopener.
  • Oysters. Having now eaten oysters in Portugal, Spain, London and Australia, I’m starting to question what makes these delicious molluscs develop different flavour profiles (the water, the location, the temperature). Something to look into!
  • Plus more blogging…

See you tomorrow 🙂
