At long last spring is almost here. I do love winter, as much as I love all of the seasons for what they each uniquely bring, but there does come a point in time when I start to long for the turning of the season and the changes it brings. That point has now come for me and I’m really happy to see spring flowers starting to pop up and the days gradually staying lighter for longer. I’ve just come back from a lunchtime walk and the sun is shining brightly and the air feels warmer. It seems the perfect time to tell you the news I’ve been bursting to tell you for so long: I’m busy working on my very own cookbook, based on this blog, which is due to be published next year.
I’ve had the idea for a book for a long time and it’s taken quite a while to get to this point – the idea needed development, a proposal had to be written, an agent and then a publisher found – but now the publishing contract is signed, sealed and delivered and I can finally share this wonderful development with you all. I hope to be able to tell you a little more as the finer details are worked out and share with you some of the ins and outs of my own personal experience of writing a cookbook.
I’d very much like to thank each and every one of you; those of you who’ve been with me since the beginning, those who found me more recently and everyone who’s ever engaged with me and the blog. You’ve given me the encouragement and confidence to keep going and, without a shadow of a doubt, you’ve helped to turn my dream of writing my own cookbook into a reality. It’s exciting, it’s thrilling and, I don’t mind telling you, a little bit scary too. But I’m enjoying every moment of it and I truly hope that you’ll continue along this wonderful journey with me.
