I am an Instagram addict,  a homemaker and a cook, a kitchen gardener;  neither a designer nor a chef.

I love cooking and feeding people, so you will find my fare for the local pop-up market which happens every Saturday. On Sundays The Husband and I host Sunday Suppers @ The Sandbag House (our home) – a service to the village when, currently, there is no other meal offering available for visitors or locals.

A recipe book has been suggested…we shall see how things unfold….


The urge (I hesitate to say inspiration) to write is one that I’d suppressed for years, but has been allowed to emerge thanks to the friends and strangers who read this (and more recently, look at, photographs) – and who want more.

For some, the topics are trivial and fluffy, for others, less so.  Regardless, I have elected, in this space, to stay away (mostly) from politics, religion and bad wine…  So, Fiona’s Favourites is mostly a happy place, although, from time to time, sadnesses happen: all part of the fabulous fabric of life.

I live in an alternative technology house, in McGregor in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, with The Husband, now two cats, Tiger Pearl and Gandalf the Grey.

If you want to get in touch….

    1. Thank you Anabel, and I, yours! Both my dad and my mum-in-law were born and brought up in Glasgow, and within miles of each other, although they both lived most of their lives in Africa.

        1. And, come to think of it, my dad never went back after they emigrated in 1966. That decision is a whole other story.

          1. Yip. My folks had actually planned to go to Aus when they left Uganda. Didn’t work that way because I was on the way 😉
            Some of The Husband’s family is in Aus. Not sure when they went.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Barbara! Apologies for the delay – I was away, and working on my tablet, I miss things. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and best to you!

  1. Thanks for coming to see me at Steve Says…come again, stay a while – have a wee drink even. Happy blogging! Oh, and if you like music please check out my music blog if you get a chance…

  2. It’s always awesome to see another writer inspired by others to continue working. I think there’s a great amount of potential here, and I look forward to reading what you do next. Have a great day!

  3. You have a wonderful life out there. I’ve read your guest post and I love it. You inspires me to write passionately like what you did in your recipe. Keep us inspired. Thanks Fiona.

    1. Thank you, and I’m glad. I will keep on doing this for as long as I find things that I want to write about. While my intention was not necessarily to inspire, I’m happy that I do, and I hope to continue doing so. 🙂

Let me know what you think....
