20150924_095305October 1st……yipeee! ┬áTime to take a breath and actually breathe. October 1st heralds the end of my annual September whirlwind.

Day 1 teamSeptember is frenetic on the trade show front…with two big shows kind of ‘book-ending’ the month…firstly Speciality Fine Food Show at Olympia and then Lunch Exhibition at the Design Centre Islington.

STandThen there’s the smattering of Food Festivals……Abergavenny and Aldeburgh.

And this month I also had Natalie join the team…..poor girl, her feet have barely touched the ground as she too has been swept up in the September whirlwind!

And then there’s the family dynamics to juggle as well….getting the Mini-Martinsens out of holiday mode, and back to school and then back into some semblance of a routine. ┬áThe usual clubs and after school activities such as cubs/beavers etc.

AbersignSo…it’s without doubt my favourite month of the year, but its also the craziest. Too much time away from home, the endless trips back and forth to London………but lots of time connecting with foodie friends and meeting new folk.

Specialtiy hallI’ve loved it…..but my family are going to be glad to have me ‘back to normal’
