Fish, Chips and Mushy Peas

Hello, hello hello! What a week! A weird week with a good ending! So last Saturday I attended Balance festival with my favourite foodies! I tried Everything! Went to Everything and ate and drank EVERYTHING! It was such an amazing day which gave me an amazing buzz, a lot of lovely people and I want to be there doing a stall next year! The dream! Along with all the other foodie stalls! This year calls for pushing LeitchyCreates to the full! So a few weeks ago I mentioned I was going to do a personal training course. Well it got cancelled last Friday and at the time I thought it was the end of the world but you know what, it was the best thing that could of happened! So for the past few weeks, since booking on to the course, I’ve been so low, so tired, so emotional, so anxious and basically not myself and I felt myself slipping into old ways. I think I wanted to do it for the money and for a reliable income! Plus if I wasn’t doing the foodie scene, the fitness would be next in line. However, the foodie seen is 100% more exciting for me and I found it impossible to focus on me and my business when trying to learn a whole new subject. Also the work scared me and not in an exciting way! Just a scary, stomach in knots, dreading, wanna cry in a hole way…. haha! So I spent the first half of the week looking for a course and stressing and then Wednesday I realised, what the hell am I doing?!!?!? and decided and got so excited about the future of LeitchyCreates. I am a foodie through and through and I do believe in myself. My chocolates having been going so so so well and I’ve got so many ideas for new products and different ranges on my website. All under the raw theme. I’ve also got a few events I’m planning and other things I’m going to keep under the hush hush until I have them all planned out with dates and things so that I can share. I also want to do the Sano school of nutrition online course. That was made definite after I spoke to them on Saturday and I can’t wait to get started it and practicing it through my own recipe development. So I think thats everything for this week! I’ve also been doing a lot of baking for todays stall at Nuffield Health in Sheffield. I’ll be there from 9am – 1pm and non members and members are welcome! I dropped off my raw chocolate cheesecake at Foundry Coffee roasters cafe in Sheffield and don’t forget my chocolate boxes are now available on my shop!

Have a lovely weekend!
