Currant Pie Once upon a time, before super-charged blenders blasted nutrients from food, home cooks nourished their families with lovingly-prepared, affordable, real food. My Dad started making this Currant Pie in 1976. Family legend says it was this pie he used to woo a wife and win over a Mother-in-law. Serves 6 - 8 1 cup SR flour 1 cup plain flour 150g butter 1 egg yolk 1-2 tbs cold water squeeze lemon juice 1 1/2 cups currants 1 1/2 cups water 1 cup sugar 3 tbs cornflour 2 tsps lemon juice 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Not sure why I bothered decorating for Little Sister’s little party yesterday- they did a much better job!

  • This afternoon two lost horses wandered into our paddock. 
I thought it’d be fun to prank Bearhands, but he didn’t bite. We haven’t found the owner yet, so if you know these two fillies, they were last seen trying to establish which paddock of turf they like the most!

  • Dear Autocorrect,
Every morning at this time I text my husband to see if he’s ready for smoko. Never once have I offered him a smoke.

  • Sometimes I think we should offer the farm as a corporate retreat so stressed executives can come and watch the traveler walk down the paddock as the sun sets. #meditation #farmlife #farmer #sunset #sunshinecoast
  • Shortbread ready just in time for smoko.

  • H+6 has been a delight. Can’t wait to meet H+7 tomorrow and see what the year holds for us! #seven #already #farmlife #birthday
  • After three (!) weeks of school holidays, I’m looking forward to getting back into routine tomorrow. Well, at least until Tuesday, when the chaos of birthday week starts. 🤷‍♀️ #schoolholidays #puffed #itwasfunthough
