The Beginning

I've been umming and ahhing over whether or not to start a blog. Would I keep it up to date? Would anyone read it? Do I have the time? I've finally bitten the proverbial bullet, so here it is.

Who am I?
I'm an Aussie mum of two, with lots of apparent time and not much actual time. I love my veggie garden (Grow), cooking and baking (Bake) and running (Run). Fortunately I really do enjoy the latter, because the first two generally lead to lots of eating which neccessitate lots of exercise.

Do I have anything to blog about?
Since being a (mostly) stay at home mum I have become very experimental in the garden and in the kitchen and have come to love a therapeutic cooking/baking session. Many online sources help facilitate this, and I feel that I have learned and taken so much from other people's blogs that I should acknowledge those people and potentially give something back - to them personally and to the wider community. Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial is, hands down, the single most influential presence in my kitchen. I am slowly baking (and eating, and subsequently running) my way through all of her sweet recipes. She has introduced me to so many quality ingredients that I am sure to post about in the future.

I also run. Quite a bit. It's a fairly recent interst and it's somewhat addictive. I'm sure many future posts will revolve around upcoming goals and my love/hate relationship with competing.

I think that will do for a first post. I'll gather my thoughts and figure out where to go from here.


  1. Congratulations on your new blog, Pam! And thank you very much for your kind words.. :)

    Look forward to reading more! I'm glad you can run - I can't, so I'm just eating and getting bigger.. ;-)

  2. Thanks Celia :) 2 posts already, things are looking positive!
