My resolutions for 2011 involve keeping a more orderly home and baking.
I have used the renovation of our aged cottage, built in 1727, as an excuse for messy habits. When guests are due, a cleaning and cooking frenzy takes place. The rest of the time wobbily piles of books, magazines, papers and clothes grow in most rooms. Now we have decorated, installed heating and fitted blinds, I resolve to keeping our lovely home looking good, plus cook more often and try new recipes.
