Looking back at 2021, I realise my eating out habits in and around Frome have not been the healthiest! Lockdowns, babies and being new to town has meant when I have been able to eat out it needs to be comforting, fairly fast food and in an environment suitable for a buggy and the messy muncher that comes with it. However I’m not saying I’ve eaten badly by any means! Frome has got some now go-to favourites of mine, that you need to know about.
This year I want to start food blogging again and as I am still fairly new to Frome and the surrounding area, I’d like to focus on exploring what’s on the menu here. I’ll be honest, so far it’s a bit like digging for diamonds in the rough, but as I said…
I’m going through a personality evolution. I’m loving being a mum but I’m also mourning the old me, that I know I can’t fully be again. I’m trying to find a balance.
Community is not synonymous with audience or customer base, and no business should just switch to talking about their community if really people just buy stuff from them. True some customers might feel part of a business or brand community but it’s unlikely they all do and… wait for it… that’s ok!
At the start of the year I had a baby and not being someone that can really sit still for too long, I’ve started using a small fraction of my time whilst on maternity leave, to explore Community as it grows into an industry in it’s own right.
A lot has happened in 2019 and this is just a brief update to help me reflect in preparation for planning ahead to 2020.
In Art we have curators, who select and interpret individual works of art and pull them together to make a collection to be experienced as a whole. Why then can’t we have experience curators, those that pull together the hyper organised with fantastic makers, all the time focusing on the final collection, the poetry of the collaboration, the experience.
Dear Westernised world. It has come to my attention that we are spoiled by low cost airlines, by package holidays, by the ability to enjoy cheap travel and experiences…
I can give myself a big TICK in the “see more of Europe” travel ambition box after a busy July! Having visited Bruges many moons ago, it was high time I visited Belgium’s capital, Brussels, plus we made a day trip to Antwerp. Later in the month I travelled solo to France, back to my beloved Chateau de la Salle, to spend time with an old friend, doing absolutely nothing – divine! Finally at the end of July, one very early morning, Manny and I set off to visit Abruzzo. Let’s just say it was a very long day!
