I met Tasha earlier this year through a kids cooking swap, but I never thought I would get to meet her in real life, what with Minnesota being some way from Oxfordshire. Then she e-mailed to say she was going to be in the UK. An opportunity not to be missed....
I'm often quite shy with new people, but somehow blogger meet-ups are different. Tasha is such a lovely, serene person and chatting with her was a wonderfully relaxing interlude in the midst of the hectic Christmas run-up. It made me think how important it is to make time for the people in our lives, to really listen to them. I'm often guilty of having so much on my plate that I forget that the whole point of what I am doing is to make the people around me happy. Perhaps sometimes I need to do less and sit and talk more. Sounds good doesn't it?
And do you want to know why there are no Tord garlands left in Target? It's because we in the UK are benefiting from personal deliveries of all known stock!
Thank you so much Tasha for that and the gorgeously soft alpaca, which far surpasses the standard of my knitting. I hope to do it justice. And if I ever find myself in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, I will be sure to e-mail and let you know.
