Small Trip, Big Memories

just spent a lovely few days down in the big smoke, blessed with perfectly springlike weather and catching up with old friends made it hard to leave, but I suppose all good things must come to an end. (heavy sigh) The charms of THE CITY have certainly worked their magic and since a visit to Rosie's fell through at the last minute I shall have to return sooner rather than later to settle my grumbling stomach.

A quick hello to all those I met at the School of Life conversation drinks in Clerkenwell and a big thank you to the friend for the invite. And if anyone living or visiting London is up for something different that may just make you think a little bit more, you should definitely check out the friendly folk at the School of Life.

At least I return home for celebrations as I grow older by another year, and I feel rather lucky to have such wonderful family and friends who make it such an occasion! Could do with some hummingbird bakery cupcakes now though......

I've been working pretty hard recently, which is good and made me realise I have a slight affinity to develop workaholic tendencies (well you know, a little OCD doesn't hurt anyone). It has however made me ponder what I'm working towards at the moment and what the future may hold based on the decisions I make, especially after an interesting offer thrown up yesterday. I have always been tentative at decision making and lack the necessary self confidence I need but I am certainly making a conscious effort to be a little more....well ruthless.

Another decision that, even with a devoted love of food and cooking, is so hard to contemplate - what shall I cook for dinner?

In the meantime, I have just discovered this girl with the most amazing voice...this is her version of mumford and sons timshel with her sisters singing backing vocals and I'm sure you'll enjoy.
