Pies, Peonies and Hay

I LOVE Lemon Meringue pie

We took a trip to the The Hay Festival for the first time this year. I went primarily to attend some talks organised by Country Living magazine on setting up a business. Both talks were very inspiring, informative and the talk with Emma Bridgewater and Matthew Rice was hugely entertaining and hilarious, Matthew has a wonderfully dry sense of humour.
I was so impressed by the whole feel, quality and diversity of the festival that I think we will make it an annual visit The setting is glorious and the atmosphere very friendly.

The plans for my business are moving apace, my designs are now officially "in work". The logo is done and the website is being built...... Hopefully I will soon have something to share with you, I am being cautious, I don't want to jinx anything yet!
