|Not a Black and White Photo .. this is exactly as I took it.|
In the meantime it is time to say goodbye to my BBC radio Northampton Kitchen Garden Show. It's exactly 2 years that I have been doing this show and although I am rather sad that it is at an end, part of me is also hugely relived to have the time back, especially as I've spent more than a day a week putting it together, and with just my expenses covered it's been an amazing experience but I am sure you can imagine how thrilled I am to get a lie in on Sunday mornings in bed again!
As with most local BBC it's a lifeline for so many older people. The local paper has been cut down to just once a week, and I am very much afraid that the local BBC stations will be chopped down as they cut back on local peoples involvement and I believe that it will be regionalised in much the same way as I have witnessed the print media over the next few years as budgets are chopped. I loved it and it has been really fun, but now it is time to concentrate on a new project. As one door closes another opens and I am bursting to tell everyone my news .... but I am not quite ready to say what it is yet.
So to change the subject .. I've been pouring over Chantal Coady's Rococo book this afternoon .. so I am off to buy some chocolate to make something delicious now, and will leave you with a photograph I took on Tuesday morning this week. It was so dark and frosty as I walked the children to school that it looks as though I took this picture in black and white... it's not, but I loved the shapes so I thought I'd share it.
