I’m back in the saddle after spending 3 days up ‘in the smoke’ (that’s London to you missus) attending www.ukaware.com.
I was helping Dave Hampton (the Carbon Coach) to host the speaker panels that were on Friday and Saturday and sat on a panel too on Saturday afternoon.
It was an amazing event – Mr OOFFOO himself, Al Tepper, was there and I had very eco’nversations with the delightful Ruby Wax and the charmingly talented Oliver Heath too.
I could witter on about how much I loved the whole thing, but my calves still haven’t forgiven me! I must have walked 500 miles….
Instead, I thought I’d tell you about my personal favourites in attendance at the show.
1) Morsbags – what smashing ladies (and gents) they are. This is a sociable guerilla bagging group for want of a better description and if you’ve got a sewing machine, you need to visit their site at www.Morsbags.com
2) Nether Wallop Trading – I was honoured to present a little award to them for their Paper Potter….if you’re a keen gardener (and even if you’re not) have a look at this at www.NetherWallopTrading.com
I realise I’ve been conspicuous in my absence lately – don’t tang me – I’ve been way past busy!
And regular readers here will know I advocate a proper work/life balance – that’s essential to keeping your sanity and making all the pieces fit.
Actually, I’ve only hopped onto the computer to take a little stroll up email mountain and the computer’s on a timer – 10 minutes and I’m off; the Easter holidays are for grown ups too you know and right now, I’m surrounded by a thousand pieces of lego and excited children. I’ve got a bank and a roof garden to design and construct – so I’ll be brief…
