News & Simple and in Season July at My Custard Pie

Hello – I’m dipping my toe back into blogging after an almost month-long break, which has felt very strange. We welcomed a beautiful new baby boy into the world (the day after posting my last post!) Following a safe delivery and currently being blessed with glorious sunshine – we couldn’t be happier. I’m remembering (rapidly) how different life with a newborn is – though relishing every moment at the same time. I can’t promise the same level of regularity when it comes to blogging. I’m working to a time-frame of fifteen minute slots, within which to do everything, including getting the older children ready for school, washing, cooking, feeding baby, and everything else that goes on in a day!

Simple and in Season Badge

I’m currently pulling together a roundup of all the wonderful Simple and in Season entries for the month of June – plenty of fresh berries marking my favorite time of the year for British produce.
