Feel free to share the recipe if you like :))
1 tin condensed milk
1 lb demerara sugar
2 tablespoons honey
Place the honey in a saucepan or ovenproof jug and put on a low heat until liquid; make up to 1/4 pint with milk. Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and place over a low to medium heat until butter melted and sugar dissolved. Put pan on high heat and bring to a good boil, and boil until soft ball stage is reached. Remove from heat and leave for ten minutes or so, then beat steadily until the fudge becomes grainy. Turn into prepared tin and leave to cool, then mark into small squares. Enjoy.

........ but sme of them were so pretty I couldn't resist lol A nice mix of French, Italian and Kilner jars, 9 in total, plus most of the lids/rings - what isn't there I can make up from the stock I hold of such things.
£2 for the lot.

Just when things really annoy you (see post below lol), something inevitably turns up to make you smile again. a lovely internet friend read about my search for non-baked biscuits and sent me down this lovley wee booklet from Shetland, filled with the most delicious and decadent and CHOCOLATEY biscuits imaginable....................
I'm going to have a really good time trying some (ok, all lol) of these out!
As if such a wonderful thing wasn't enough, she included an exquisitely worked crochet bookmark to go with it.
Thankyou H, you made my day :))

One consideration was sheeps' wool, either bought in or made myself.
I ended up having a look in the local B&Q depot, where I spotted this HUGE roll of loft insulation, 100% recycled from plastic bottles, for £12.98 - result!
I now need to have a look on the net for some hints and tips on getting it in place, but research and note taking is half the fun for me, so I'm fine with that. When it's up, it's time for lining and painting. Ever the optimist, I came home with some paint charts as well lol
The other things I came home with are the components for making my off-grid fridge. Watch out for the next post when you'll get a look at that!

Imagine living there..................
I know I will be there one day, and will come back and tell you if I was right after all.
