It's been a long while since I've put together one of these posts. Somehow I fell out of blogging rhythm but hopefully it's come back starting with this post!
Have you seen Sophie's new look?
Check out Rachel Power's most excellent book The Divided Heart - Motherhood & Creativity, it's recently been re-released, I love it. Wish I'd written it myself! Rachel interviewed 22 artists who are also mothers about their creative process and how it fits (or not) with motherhood. Rachel blogs at The Rachel Papers
Pete and I recently heard Steve Biddulph author of 'Raising Boys' speak at a nearby school, Steve is an engaging speaker and still has some speaking dates left for this year that you can find here . I'll write a blog post soon about what I took away from his presentation.
With the weather cooling down here, if you're feeling crafty you might like to check Pip's latest book 'Craft for the Soul'
And while we're talking all things Pip, I bought a copy of Pip's great ebook about blogging: Shake it Up! I'm inspired. Now to put all those good ideas into practice.
On the creative note, it's an oldie but a goodie, if you haven't ever picked up Julia Cameron's book The Artist's Way it is a great one, it took me deeper into my writing path.
A Cup of Jo is one of the first blogs I started reading all those years ago when I discovered blogs.
Cakes and Ale in Sorrento who I work with on their marketing have a new website, and coming up on Sunday May 31st a beautiful Southern French dinner as part of Taste of Sorrento. The dinner honours LuLu Peyraud, matriarch of Domain Tempier vineyard in southern France. LuLu's provencal cuisine was adored by many including Alice Waters who travelled to LuLu's kitchen to learn from her. LuLu was renowned for her sense of hospitality, her culinary skill and passion for selling her family's wine to restaurants all over France. Cakes and Ale chef, Leilani Wolfenden will create a three course dinner of Provencal cuisine to be served along with wine from the region LuLu made so famous. To book phone: 03. 5984 4995
It's cold here. Time to put on your slippers.
Stay cosy and enjoy your weekend x
