What a tumultuous year... I quit my job at the orchard & enrolled to train as a chef; I've been working in a local restaurant honing my craft, not to mention just starting a stint as a breakfast chef. I've lost weight, sleep and doubtlessly some hair, and picked up a keener appreciation of food, not to mention some horrible eating habits. I swear you'll get details on my life but not till I get some time to myself, which will probably be early next year - I plan on relaunching the blog so pleeeeeeease persevere. A big thanks to those of you who have emailed asking what's been happening and apologies to those of you I've inadvertently forgotten - your interest is keenly appreciated; I just simply haven't had the time to keep up with the blog. When I'm not working, I've been studying and when not doing either of those things, I can be found doing laundry (damnable chef's whites!).

So again, stay tuned - I'll do my best to throw stuff up but the really cool things will happen next year. Bye for now...

Wonderful to hear that you are still at it! I was certain you were busy doing fantastic things and I knew that the kitchen adventures would not only tie you to the stove but also the washing machine. If no one's mentioned it already, I will.. You'll make a great wife oneday :-)

Can't wait to see the re-launch and hear all the news.

Zoe, madness is the word! I miss writing, & reading through Puku makes my typing finger (I was a disappointment to Mavis Beacon) twitch with longing!

Mary! Hello - where are you now?

Hi Nig,

It has been a long time.

How is your cooking going, I am sure you are having lots of fun with it.
I relocated to London, so sending big hugs from Big EYE,
