What do you do

When you are feeling frazzled and fragile emotionally and have a lot on your mind?
Take out some frozen fruit, that you stashed away at a time when you were more organised and try an experimental pie.
Frozen portions of Apple and rhubarb in pie crust.

Put some beautifully fragranced roses from your garden on the table and ditch the menu plan, serve up a meal of warming comfort food that includes everyones favourites to minimize the 'I don't like' whine.


Put your pie in the oven while you enjoy your dinner, feeling calmed by the fragrant roses, as you eat.



Whip up some cream and serve your pie.

Good smells, good food and nurturing others helps to make me feel calmer, more grounded and a little less stressed.

    Hope that you're feeling a bit more on top of it, that the tide of emotion is swept away and left you refreshed from the last 24hours.
