The daffodils are blooming and the mornings are brighter here in the east of Scotland but the weather hasn't seemed to realise that it's meant to be Spring. This week we've had hail storms, snow and lots and lots of rain which makes me want to switch to hibernation mode and hunker down... a bit Groundhog-like really. Life is slowly returning to normal after the disruption of having our kitchen remodelled in January. Four weeks without a kitchen was difficult, but it made me appreciate how lucky I am. Yes, the disruption was a pain but I still ate really well (from my well-stocked freezer) and now feel really inspired to cook in my new kitchen. My approach to life this year is to be a lot more positive and after nearly two years of daily meditation and yoga, I feel that my general outlook has become much sunnier. Yes, I still worry about little things, but I don't let them consume me and when life gives me lemons, well... which leads me to this week's recipe. I can feel a cold lurking after all the strange weather we've had and now after buying some oranges (and vitamin C tablets) to boost my immune system, I've decided to make an orange cake. See... there's the silver lining!
