Crisp clean powdery smelling white cotton flapping in the wind under the apple blossom. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and the children are helping to water in the newly transplanted raspberry bushes. Spring is here. I've been hanging my washing out thinking all the while who should I dedicate my book to? My mum.. for teaching me to cook ? My wonderful children? The love of my life .. my husband and best friend ?

Finishing writing a book is a fabulous feeling indeed, but that is not where the story ends. The testing and editing have gone back and forth between my publishers, Ian, my book designer and Jamie my editor. Last week I wrote the acknowledgement pages. I had so many people to thank for their help! Now I've written my dedication. My dilemma solved. The final words of Prepped have been written today and my editor emailed those magical words - You're done.

That's it. I've done it! The year is almost up ..

I can't wait to see it as a book!

If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
