It's that time of year again, when I go to the Worldwide Music Festival in Sète, France (my home from home). Apart from all the fun I'm looking forward to having, it's actually been a real time of reflection for me. This time last year, I had an 'aha moment' on the beach when I decided I needed to stop running around like a headless chicken & get my priorities straight. Then came almost a year of being a stay-at-home mum and a time of massive reflection.
Whilst staying at home is good, I needed more and I felt that I was ready to return, renewed & inspired. Except that as I stepped back on to the treadmill of the 9-5 I quickly fell back into my old patterns. The last few weeks have been busy to the point of lunacy. I'm bored of hearing myself go on about how exhausted I am & how busy I am... Like who cares!
So, as I update my blog, while checking my Facebook, while packing my bag with only 2 hours till I need to catch my flight, while frantically panicking about all the things I haven't done; I'm looking forward to getting some more inspiration on the beach & chillaxing! Here's to not falling into the busy trap!
But back to the food & France. These macarons were an attempt to impress a French friend of mine but unfortunately I didn't quite manage to get them to her (although they were still enjoyed). I used the recipe from one of my favourite food blogger/stylist/photographer people called Helene Du Jardin on her blog tartelette. I shall be away for a week & I'm sure I'll have plenty to fill you in on when I get back!
Peace & Love
