If, like me, you have only know Tove Jansson as creator of The Moomins, then you might like to check out the season exploring her work and short stories now airing on BBC radio 4 as part of celebrations of the centenary of her birth. As well as Moomins, she was an artist, illustrator and writer of novels and short stories.

From tomorrow, Lidl are selling a variety of Scandinavian specialities, including knäckebröd, köttbullar and sill (crisp bread, meatballs and pickled herring). The selection includes Swedish almond torte, Norwegian cheese and Finnish mustard. Danish pork scratchings are on the menu, too (though I didn’t realise they were a Danish speciality..?) And liquorice lovers are in luck as there a couple of strong Nordic varieties on offer.
Will you be rushing out to Lidl tomorrow? On my list are cinnamon buns, crisp breads and maybe some biscuits. What will you be picking up?
