Hello from the long grass

IMG_7473

You’re right, that’s not a picture of what I’ve been baking this week.  I haven’t baked in a little while – I’m afraid to say that the July and August heat took the desire to spend too much time near an oven away from me.

But – I will be back – I’m still keen on carrying on the Mary Bradley project and have my eye on what’s next.  I may even make an attempt to cross the Lard Barrier with my next cake.

Since I was last here I was made redundant.  Whenever I say this to people their first reaction – understandably – is to say that they’re sorry to hear it.  I’m not sorry if I’m honest.  I’ve been treated generously, and it’s time for me to work out what my next career is going to be.

In the meantime though I had a wonderful week going to exhibitions.  If you’re interested in seeing what I saw and what I thought about it, I’ve put a page up here.  Be warned, there are a lot of words.  I won’t judge you if you don’t make it to the end.
