Two years ago I went to my last yoga class before I gave birth to Edie. I recall writhing about on the mat aiming just to see my toes, since touching them had been lost to me about four months earlier. A couple of weeks ago I went back to yoga because while I can […]

I think it is really excellent that you can do a degree in Anthropology. What an awesome thing to study. I think it is even more excellent that I can do my own study of anthropology free of charge and without having to reference my papers properly. You see, I study people all the time. […]

Our eldest daughter is starting school next year and has begun orientation already. This took me a little bit by surprise because I still feel like I’m in August. It’s also her birthday in a few weeks, which (given that I thought it was August) has really thrown me, and so, with my resistance low, […]

I’ve always tried to do the right thing – pick up litter even if I didn’t drop it, bake things late into the night and decorate them in the wee small hours of the morning (even though I’m no good at either but it’s for the bake sale that’s raising money for my kids’ school), […]

I was flipping through one of my old note books the other day and came across a list with the title; WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW TO OPEN A RESTAURANT. Under it I had written this – lease  (excellent start). contracts purveyors  (somewhat essential, yes) budgets (not that I do them – Gregory does – but […]

Tomorrow Gregory and I are signing our will. I am aware this is something we should have attended to before we accumulated two children, two businesses and one cookbook to our names.

Gregory has been asked to be a panel member at Food Service Magazine’s Masterclass about owning a cafe or a restaurant and you can buy your tickets here. I am not at all offended that they didn’t ask me – perhaps they think we’re Jekyll and Hyde, or Bonnie and Clyde, or Torvill and Dean, […]

2015 is playing out fast and furiously in the world of Llewellyn/Hart. We’ve had weddings, cookbook edits, openings of bars, childhood-home-selling, rental-house-needing-to-be-moving, relatives with serious illnesses, staff members on holidays, children going through ‘stages’ and then – shockingly – a sudden death in the family. I’m not confident white people have this mourning thing down. […]

It’s a bit of a slow leak I know, but I thought I should, in some formal capacity, let y’all know that The Gretz will be throwing open its doors to the public for the first time tomorrow from 4pm. Hours are.. Friday 4pm- midnight Saturday 12noon-midnight Closed Sunday and Monday. Next week and for every […]
