    Caroline, do you LOVE it down there? How do people feel about the place? Do you get weary or are you loving every second of it and taking the ups with the downs? I’m going down for a visit next weekend with my mum & am going to go down on a weekday after Christmas to see what it’s like in the kitchens. Sar

  2. Some days I do indeed love it – but others are not so easy. I just had an amazing week with a brilliant partner in my favourite kitchen (and made a brilliant sourdough!) so all is very right with my world. Other days things just don’t work out so well and you get really frustrated. It is a good idea to come down and see what it is like but the only way you will really appreciate the highs and lows of the course is to actually do it, which I’m sure is no help at all! When are you coming down next weekend? I might be around so that we could meet up and I could answer any questions in person!

    Supposed to go down next weekend but that may change as an uncle of my mum’s just passed away (he was 92 so no need to be sad) but we’ll be down there this weekend for the funeral.
