Maggies centre, Aberdeen asked us at the very last minute if we could bring our crockery into the centre for a ‘thank you’ evening held for corporate sponsors of the centre. It was a lovely evening; this incredible building comes alive in the dark evenings with the beautifully designed lighting scheme.  

 

Thank you Rebecca for helping Laura, Jo and I out at such short notice x.

 

 

 

 

My personal highlight of the evening was a compliment from Craig Wilson ‘The Kilted Chef’(proprietor of Eat On The Green in Udny), he said the shortbread I had baked for the evening was amazing - I was chuffed.  I have my late Granny to thank for this; her shortbread was the best I have ever tasted and she shared her recipes with me as she taught me how to bake at her farmhouse kitchen table… no electric mixers back then, just a wooden spoon or a hand whisk.

There have been very few news updates as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2012 and as a result, made the decision to step back from promoting ourselves and just fulfill the crockery hire bookings we had. It's almost a year on now, with chemo, surgery and radiotherapy behind me, I'm feeling just about ready to get going again. Today our  crockery has been delivered to one of the lodges at Castlewood Holiday Park, Banchory for a 25th Birthday Party weekend. Here's a photo of the chocolate Birthday cake Laura baked and decorated for her friend Reighann.

Our vintage crockery was delivered to the West Church Hall, Inverurie for a small wedding party. The Bride's friends got together and helped provide and serve the food for the informal tea party reception before heading off to an evening of music and dancing.
