Ack, sorry folks. I had a lovely post all planned. I even started writing it. It was a lovely story about my relaxing yet productive long Easter weekend, full of photos of my finished cardigan, a jacket I’ve half-made, my gardening efforts and the pretty Easter flowers that adorn my dining room table.

And then, at 9.30 this morning, work rang and I was called in to go to an event IMMEDIATELY and I then spent 4 1/2 hours in an HR meeting watching some vile sleazebag of a senior manager* try and weasel his way out of being held accountable for repeatedly groping his junior female colleagues while he was drunk and I am now filled with feminist/socialist/human ire and no amount of pink tulips or alpaca cardigans shall calm me. Indeed, half a bottle of rosé has not had the desired effect. I am simply furiouser. So I shall leave you with this eloquent comment on the state of the world:


Tomorrow there will be pictures of happy things. I promise.


* Not at my firm, I was minute-taking for one of our clients!!

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
