An avid tea-drinker who likes nutmeg in her coffee and warm lavender-scented quilts. She knits, crochets and partakes in random acts of craftiness (and kindness). She likes obscure works of literature, philosophy and the idea that her mind exists separately from her body. She enjoys moving furniture around, literary criticism and baking bread. She writes haiku about nettles, would like to swim with seals and become completely self-sufficient. She writes as if her life depends on it, listens to beautiful music, and loves her darling husband Mr. VP.

First quarter favourites!

I thought I’d do some monthly favourites blogs, so here are some of my favourite things from the year so far:

  • Waitrose’s ECOlogical fabric conditioner.
  • Pumphreys’ selection of Swiss Water decaf coffees. Find them in the Grainger Market. A North East institution.
  • Urtekram rose shower gel.
  • Cloth sanitary pads*
  • Bonne Maman strawberry jam (on homemade bread)
  • Doves Farm organic wholewheat spelt flour (for making said homemade bread).
  • Hawthorn leaves emerging :)
  • ClassicFM (not a fan of commercial radio in any other setting but the music is worth having to flip stations occasionally!)
  • This YouTube channel, which is just fascinating.
  • My new FitBit Charge 2, a mother’s day surprise from Mr VP and Baby VP. Nothing says ‘get your rear into gear’ like a buzzing wristband!
  • Apple cider vinegar because of its health benefits. I use the Biona variety.
  • Faith In Nature lavender bar soaps. We don’t use liquid soaps any more at Chez VP, and these are some of the nicest bar soaps I’ve come across! Proper, old-fashioned soaps with just the right amount of old-lady-knicker-drawer about them ;-)

*more about these coming!
