Sun 30th March

Crikey where does the time go ? Last week was easter right ? and snowing here, its was perfect actualy for the kdis to do the snowball thing just for an hour till it melted then they ran in for eggs, it also hampered the easter bunnys tracks a little which was all good delaying tactics, talking easter bunnies the four year became obsessed with dressing up and with some help from his brother found a white dressing gown, made some paper ears and stuck on some blades of grass for whiskers, they even had a crack at making their onw choco easter bunnies in moulds though sadly all came out with ears unattached - ces't la vie

Its been another manic week checking final book edits, completing my articles for my Herts Life column and my Higher nature nutrition mag and of course jacking up some great offers and comps for the April tips sheet, if you're not signed up, get in quick, we've even got a 'bogof' and I thought that was only supermarkets...

Wed 19th march

Just back from a productive few days in Monmouth staying with freinds and getting some writing done. Sat was fun, I stopped off briefly to say hello at a ladies Circle function and bought myself a smashing hat in the process, and fairtrade I'll have you know.

Frantically tapping away at the final final book edit and correcting mistakes, crikey if you see how many typos I make it will take a while and also completing articles to promote the book

The pic of radio 2 girlies in the sunday express was fun, I hear Wogan gave a certian publication more plugs than usual !

Happy easter by the way

Mon 10th

What a week, exhaustion is the word but I found time for a quick swim and aromatherapy sauna to revitalise myself (if you fancy it by the way theres a free family day pass to the Herts branch oif Next Gen - click on the front page for the email addy) Anyway I ws in the changing area after showering and a woman asked me if I'd put a bit of cream on her back, where she couldn't reach. Helpful old me said yes without thinking and seh handed me a bottle of - well I won't name and shame - save to say it was the kind of mainstream chemical laden product that I avoid like the plague, I hesitated but then duly rubbed her back (which was covered in angry zits by the way unsprisingly) I stood there like one fo those cartoon drawings with the devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other and just cold not decide whether I should open y big mouth. I should have said, I'm sorry, I wopn't rub that stuff on you, its choc full of vile chemicals - try some of my coconut oil, it will cost you way less, help your skin and won't damage the environment....of course I actually said nothing - wimp ! I got back in my car and realised that even though I'd washed my hands I still reeked of the stuff.

That'll teach me.

March 4th

Happy birthday to me ! What a frantic 8 days or so. Cornwall was fabulous, windy but sunny. We stayed at Trelowarren -see the feature on the site - it was wonderful. We got to visit Frugi, Spiezia and Team Lollipop - nappy lot - really nice to see everyone.

Last Fri I did the talk in Winchester - great event with 250 women, really nice people, Spirit of nature were there, Cherry active, and Anne Marie Borlind so that was good too.

Last weekend was the Brighton natural trade show and Fiona and I went around like little blue ***** flies trying to meet everyone. A fab seaside time was had by all.

This morning up at the crack of the sparrows for The Wright stuff and in truth had completely forgotten it was my birthday till I heard the date mentioned. My smashing boys baked me their own recipe blueberry cake though - divine.
