So, Mel and I no longer work in the same office!
While it’s great to go on to other things, it’s still sad that we can’t do lunch during the week or make random tarte tatins in our lunch breaks…or have bake-offs!
But, that won’t stop us from talking food. In fact, just this morning we had a whole conversation via text about future cooking endeavours and sticky date pudding (and how much I wanted some). It’s like we’re still sort of in the same building.
We caught up for brunch at Seven South in Yeronga and we’re busy planning a potential Christmas in July….before I get married, cause I love a challenge.
Speaking of challenges, I have other news to share (because not everyone knows yet) – I’m heading to the UK in September…to live. It could be one year, it could be two. I think James’ mum would be upset if I said it was any more than that, but you just can’t ever tell where the universe will send you.
That doesn’t mean this blog disappears, it just adds a whole new dimension. Living so close to so many countries means I’ll get to travel more and try more food. I mean, last time I checked it was $200AUD to travel from the UK to Italy. Leaving from here is significantly more, even with a good flight deal. I’m really excited and scared at the same time – living outside your comfort zone is a challenge and I think it just has to be done. Not to mention, the UK is just going from strength to strength in the food scene. Plus, I am totally going to River Cottage!!
Mel isn’t missing out though, she has her own travel plans and I’ve told her she needs to come and visit, so we can eat up a storm!
Where have we been?
Now, if you’ve been wondering why a blog that started up less than a year ago has already dropped off in terms of content, it’s because we’re both all over the shop! I work fulltime, I manage and do the marketing for an event that’s coming up next week actually (History Alive), I’m planning a wedding that’s coming up at the end of July, doing a few other things for various people and I’m trying to get some sleep. Mel also has her hands full, she started a uni degree this year on top of her fulltime job. We’re crazy because we knew all of this was coming up when we started this blog. It’s not going to disappear anytime soon though!
Please don’t give up on us, we’re still here!
