...And so, my last day at the shop. Truth to tell, I am not sorry - although I will miss working with 'the morning ladies' who are the backbone of the store. We had lots of laughs together. I was so touched when they presented me with a lovely cyclamen, and a bar of my favourite chocolate - Green and Black's 'Maya Gold', an organic dark bar with orange overtones and warm spices. Tomorrow is the first of October and my new life as an independent artist. As they say - back to the drawing board.
