While many are gearing up for the festive season, I'm gearing down, escaping the madding mayhem to muse, masticate and spill words into my book, Grow, Cook, Write.
Now some 40,000 words in, I've got my feet in the garden for inspiration, hands on the pots and pans for creation, and bum fixed to the chair for elevation to new food-literary levels.
See you on the other side, any love and support to see me through to the end welcome.
Grow, cook and share in the meantime, and write, paint or play - whatever it takes to get you more grounded than a carrot - and more inspired than peppery rocket.
