I love book fairs!


Earlier this week I went down to the Bras Basah Complex in Singapore, a place I frequently visit when I go to the National Library (it’s right next door).  Here they have many book shops, second-hand and new, and various art supply shops, printers and galleries.

    Oh it looks like booklovers’ heaven! Your book on preserves and jam looks very interesting. Every year my husband plants some tomato bushes in Spring and by Summer we are totally overwhelmed by luscious tomatoes. Last year I made enough tomato sauce to last us for six months. We were sad when the last bottle was finished!

      I’m hoping to make some chutneys for Christmas but it will have to be with shop bought fruit I’m afraid. I am trying my best to grow some tomatoes on the balcony but my cat keeps nibbling! You did amazingly well with your tomato sauce! Cath

I would love to hear your thoughts...
