Recipe For Lavender And Lime Jelly

For the first challenge I have completed for Food in Jars I could not resist but make lavender and lime jelly. This pairs perfectly with both sweet and savoury dishes.

Head straight on to the recipe for Lavender And Lime Jelly ♥

There are some tasks that I tend to put off until I absolutely have to do them. One of them is filing. I have a stacking drawer system above my desk and the paperwork gets sorted into that before it gets filed. About a year ago I needed to find a document and while I was searching I decided to shove all the papers into a file. This was about 5 years of filing and took me very little time, mainly because I did not sort anything out. Then 6 months ago I needed to find another document and I took the time to sort the file out. I now have the documents sorted into categories making it easier for me to locate old invoices. This is for a property I manage and jointly own. My personal filing is more up-to-date as I tend to get to it more often.

I cannot say the same for my Receiver of Revenue papers. I decided to get on top of things the other day and found papers going back to June 2014. We only need to keep documents for 5 years so they are closer to being chucked out than needing to be stored. My business filing tends to get done on a need to basis, usually around the end of the financial year or when the drawer is too full. The task of making my lavender and lime jelly was also put off until the very last minute. I am usually far better organized with my recipe testing but I am still too far behind right now to be blogging more than a few days in advance. With only three weeks left before we head overseas I am going to have to change that! In the meantime I shall savour this jelly.

  9. Oh I had to laugh at this :). EVERY new year I tell myself I’ll be better about filing papers in an organized way (so I can find them when I need them, hello Kelsie) and EVERY year I forget that promise by the middle of January. I think I might make some jelly and eat my feelings–I love the idea of lavender and lime jelly! This looks divine.
