Thanks for popping in.
I am typing extra fast, because the heat is on in the kitchen!!
We are gearing up here in Crowborough for what is the best and busiest weekend in the Clarity Calendar –
OPEN DAYS 2018
The whole team is fired up here, making, picking, packing, loading the van. It’s all go, I can tell you!! And if you could see my dining room table and the chaos that is WEDDING PREP, you would honestly say, “Yikes”. Added to the fact that all my Helper Arty mates are just about to descend on the town too – Maria, Linda, Dee, Tina, Sam, Heather. Fish n Chips and Pizza in the garden is about as good as it’s gonna get girls!!!
But in another kitchen, over in Rochester, there’s a whole lot more activity!! You know I often speak fondly of my good friend Ruth Dalton? Samuel’s Mum?
Well her sister makes cakes. So I asked whether she would help us out with some boutique cupcakes for the Open Days – it being a celebration and all that.
Why of course! she said, no problem. So today, while we are running round like headless chickens over here in Edenbridge, there’s a whole lotta action in a kitchen in Rochester too! Ruth, her sister AND her Mum are in mass production…
I asked for flowers and lace…
I asked for pink and cream…
And I asked for B and D…
And how many did I ask for?
400 !!! That’s one for every visitor, and one for each of the Open Days Clarity Team…
And what do I think? I think it’s blimming brilliant! If they taste as good as they look, we are in for a BIG TREAT!
So Ruthie. I doubt you’ll have time to read this blog today. But hats off to you and your family. Respect. And gratitude.
People like you and yours are the salt of the earth, the backbone of the world.
Love & Hugs,
