nairns gluten free oatcakes

i’ve been a real convert to oatcakes over these past few gluten free years. gluten free bread still isn’t that good, and the only ones (that i’ve tried) that i will happily eat on a semi regular basis are genius and marks & spencers own. they’re almost comparable to ‘normal’ bread! i still need to try and make my own…

but in the meantime, as a bit of a crunch lover, oatcakes have been a welcome fixture for snacking and small meals. i typically go for the plain nairns oatcakes (pictured above) but was sent some of their super seeded ones to try too. the only reason i don’t have a picture of them instead is because they went so quickly, whoops! but a good sign, right?

so here we are. goodbye 650d, hello olympus e-m10! it took me a long time to do this, as well as to decide what mirrorless camera to get. once that was decided, the lens was an easy decision!

snapshots of my week – 28th january

snapshots by

ava the cat looking mischevouspilea leaves in glass jar

feels weird that i haven’t used my ‘proper’ camera for a week, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. i almost didn’t do my snapshots post this week, more than anything, because i kept forgetting to upload some photos. not that anyone else other than me particularly minds. but this year i’m trying to get ..or, well, stay more organised. if i stop enjoying doing these posts or even the blog as a whole, i’ll stop, but until then i feel a bit better if i have some sort of routine.
