The sun was so bright yesterday that when I went in after taking these pictures I couldn't see properly for some minutes. Today it is chilly and I have unearthed my slippers.
I have one or two housekeeping matters to take care of today.
First, thank you for all the positive feedback following The Quince Tree's new look. I chose it because I liked it but is very nice to know others like it too.
Second, I must apologise to anyone who was following my 'sarcastic and irritable' board on Pinterest. I've deleted it I'm afraid. Every time I logged on to Pinterest I was confronted by all those annoying things I'd pinned on that board -the brainless quotations (or quotes as people will insist on calling them), the pointless gadgets, hideous baby photos and bad grammar. I suspect they were annoying others as well. What began as a cathartic way of channelling my annoyance was beginning to have the opposite effect. There's a quotation floating around Pinterest which says 'Don't bash what you hate; promote what you love'. That's what I'll be doing from now on - pinning things that inspire me and ignoring those that don't. No more clicking on the 'quotes' category for me.
Third, I haven't said this in months, but to every one who visits The Quince Tree to see what I've been up to, thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read, to comment and to even try out a recipe or two. Comments are the lifeblood of a blog. If you have asked me a question I do try to reply in the comment box. Sometimes I reply to comments which aren't questions but I don't reply to every comment so please don't take offence if I appear to ignored your comment. I read every single one and appreciate all friendly comments.
