Chase me Charlie originally started back in 2009 as a way for me to keep track of new recipes I’d been trying & knitting patterns I’d been using. Ever since I was a teenager I’ve kept a journal in some form, so the move from paper & sketchbooks to the internet was probably inevitable.
At the end of 2011 I moved from Somerset to London & as life got very busy & exciting I stopped making the time to write about what I’d been doing. However, in October 2013 I was lucky enough to be able to buy my very own square of North London – a tiny studio flat with a garden. When I moved in the flowerbed was completely full of bamboo, but one year & two snapped garden forks later it’s pretty much clear & I get to plant whatever I want! (I have big plans involving container vegetables, bee & butterfly friendly areas & making my own compost. We shall see.)
Now that I’m a fully-fledged Londoner (oo-er) I have a bit more time to start keeping a record of what I’ve been up to. It’ll probably be a lot of gardening & knitting related things, with the odd recipe popping in here & there.
