Hi

I was searching for recipes for raspberry vodka and was directed to this site LaughSloe_Gin.

I live in sunny Suffolk, have an acre of land and am trying to be self sufficient.

Looking forward to meeting some of you

Thanks for joining in CD.

I am intrigued by your profile description: "trying to be self sufficient, thwarted by one dh and 4 dcs ;)"

Even though I work in IT where we adore our TLAs, I have never heard of those abbreviations, DH and DC!

Hello cottagedweller and wecome to the forum. I've a large jar of Fiona's patented raspberry vodka infusing away in the cupboard under the stairs. It'll be ready in about a month's time and I'm hoping it turns out as well as her bramble whiskey and gin did.

Of course she does - and loves every minute of it, don't you, TA?

There aren't many who have an personalised emoticon.  She's very special.

I'm not jealous. No, really! Ha! ha!

I'll have to do some research ... and see what I can find....

Lovely, Danuta! Big_Laugh Big_Hug

BS - re personalised emoticons - you would have to do something very special, like reach 5,000 contributions before we could enter you for consideration. Then again, as Official CSH Emoticon Scout, you may be fast-tracked. Bring home a good 'un Smile

Thanks for the explanation, CD. Whereabouts in Suffolk are you?

MOS, you are a store of wisdom, philosophy and . . . . . good humour! Ok
