Hello from Hampshire

Post: # 236866Post nicola1968 »

Hello all, I am Nicola some of you may know me from facebook ...

I live in Hants (the clue is in the title ...) with dh, three boys and a teeny tiny toy poodle. We used to keep chickens but rehomed them prior to our recent relocation to Hampshire (we've been here 6 weeks) I'm also not growing in the garden as its the size of a postage stamp and we're currently in a rental house while we look around. I AM on the waiting list for an allotment.

I'm a keen cook and baker and cook most things from scratch. I have a loathing for unnecessary food additives especially modified fats and other yuk.

I've definitely got lots of questions but hopefully I'll be able to contribute something positive myself soon.

Nice to meet you all

Nik

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
