During the week, Dawn, a very generous reader, sent me a copy of a New Zealand magazine called Good.
I'm at the Maroochydore library today talking about my favourite subject, The Simple Life. If you're over there, please introduce yourself. I've had a few questions about bread during my talks and it seems to still be giving some folk trouble. So next week I'll write about one of the favourite subjects here - bread. I'll do another beginners loaf and see if we can get the new bakers on the road to trouble-free wholesome bread. Another subject for next week - Perfection. It seems like a good thing but it's not what it seems.
I started writing my new ebook for Penguin earlier this week and it looks like it might be out this year. And good news, this one is for international release! So I'll be busy writing most of the weekend but I hope you have a beautiful time with those you love. Thank you for your comments this week. As ever, I, and many others, appreciate your input here.

And just to remind me, yet again, that my readers are not only interesting and obliging but also generous, Dawn sent me a copy of a magazine previously unknown to me - Good magazine. What a beauty it is! It's full of great articles about slowing down, crafts, ethical clothing, good food and much, much more. Thanks Dawn! Here's a sample - What's success for you?The murmuring cottage
