For those of you who fancy a neb at my Christmas holiday…
We went to Keswick for our Christmas shopping this year, to support the recently flooded businesses. The Wild Strawberry (affectionately known locally as The Strawb) is open for business, and as excellent as ever!
If you’re ever in Keswick, get yourself to Treeby and Bolton’s cafe. (That is where I found this rather festive light.) Most massive cakes you’ve ever seen, I promise.
I made mince pies. These have amaretto mincemeat and orange spiced pastry. I am very good at making mince pies taste nice, but I am terrible at making them not-ugly. Uniformity is NOT something I have mastered in baking, and is the reason I would be the first person voted off GBBO.
I wrote a book of poems! It’s called This changes things, and you can order it here!
You can now get more content from me — and help me pay the bills! — by supporting my Patreon. Get a monthly writing support pack for just $5 a month! It’s like buying me a pint.
You can also support me by checking out the many sweet and sparkly things at Edinburgh Vintage, my Etsy-based store for jewellery and small antiques.
If you just want to say hi, you can find me on Twitter, or email me via claire[at]onenightstanzas.com. You’ll get a fairly good sense of the kind of person I am by checking out my Tumblr.
