My sisters Baby Shower

My sister Viv is 8 months pregnant and yesterday I attended her baby shower. I was able to give her the perfect gift - a freezer full of pre made (with love!) Recipe Blocks. With 3 children under the age of 5 she is going to need all the help she can get!!

Antonio Market 29/10/09

Checking out the market scene. We have had a bit of fun going to a couple of school markets, they're great but the trick is not to go looking at all the other stands before the market kicks off. I love them and they really have some things to buy - I always need a friend to stick close by.

Me ready to talk blocks!!

Hi all, my first time blogging so I feel a bit nervous as I am a talkative extravert, comfortable with the face to face so this is a new experience – so here I go…Our launch was great, we had so much support from family, frie

nds and sponsors:BAREFOOT Magazine, GLAD, live it homewares, Organic Empire and SPC.

People really enjoyed themselves, as I did once the

speeches were over. The venue was great, we were able to have children with us without missing out on space comfortable for adults. We self catered too we really wanted to have great food and drinks. I’m still eating cheesecake, it took a while to hit the right recipes and size, with that I made twice as many as we needed.

Rachel Watts one of the editors from BAREFOOT magazine, ( launched our book. Rachel spoke beautifully weaving in the importance of preparing food thoughtfully and with love. She highlighted how difficult it can be to do this when we all lead such busy lives.

It was great to see others getting excited about the book, it is a little anxiety provoking self publishing so it really affirming. My 90 year old Great Aunty ‘Flossie’ bought nine! She gave them to all her grand children and daughter.

It was also good to be able to thank people publicly. Clare and I may have written the book but for me without Stephen Pope, my parents, Rachel Watts and my long suffering friends I need to reintroduce myself too this would have happened. Most importantly Clare my dear friend and Sarah who joined us and generously shared the benefit of her skills.

Well enough for now, below are some photos of the launch, hope you enjoy them, thanks to Joseph for taking the time to help us capture our launch, the photos are great!
