AUTUMN COLOURS, AUTUMN FLAVOURS & HALLOWEEN TREAT - OCTOBER 2019

A couple of weeks ago we had booked to go away to Dorset for a long weekend - a lovely romantic get away in a shepherd's hut with plans to do lots of lovely long walks along the coast - we were so looking forward to it. We arrived on the Friday afternoon in a downpour but the shepherd's hut was lovely, and we spent that evening in the village pub, The Square & Compass in Worth Matravers. It is complete time warp, untouched by modern trappings, has fantastic cider and pasties beautifully served on a paper plate! The following morning we were woken by torrential rain on our tin roof at 5am, and...

SWELTERING AND 20% OFF (MOST THINGS) THIS WEEKEND - JULY 2019

 Maybe it's my age but I'm pretty sure it is the weather - as I am writing this, despite having a fan blowing it is still boiling and we are all completely wiped out! As a consequence I am going to be uncharacteristically brief but I do want to let you know that for this weekend only there is 20% off everything (excluding tins and gift boxes) so to take advantage head over to the website now - www.finooliveoil.co.uk - and enter SCORCHER at the checkout.

MIDSUMMER MADNESS AND 15% OFF - JUNE 2019

This beautiful serene picture in no way gives away the level of stress I was feeling only one minute before taking it - I had been happily walking the dogs when Bert suddenly decided he was going to do his own thing and there was no way he was going to listen to me - a prolonged moment of madness ensued, and as I confess to be a control freak my stress levels shot through the roof! I finally managed to retrieve Bert and secure him on a lead, and at the point I took this picture I was just taking a moment to enjoy the scene in front of me whist breathing deeply and trying to...

SPRINGTIME HOPE IN ALL THE MADNESS, AND DISCOUNTS THIS WEEKEND - APRIL 2019

What a tonic nature is - thank goodness that despite the madness which continues to consume the political world, and the fact that we are once again on hold, life does keep going - nature is the best example of this. I imagine many of you, like me, turned on the radio to the news of the Brexit extension first thing this morning - OMG! But with this weather the gloom soon dissipated - what a day it has turned into here in Oxford. It has been so beautiful - about as good as it gets. I had the most amazing walk with the...
