Release of Coffee & Cake
We eat and drink for more than mere survival. Food comforts and reassures, connects us with others. A mug of coffee wakes us up in the morning. A cup of tea can calm us down.
Cakes are great for celebrations, birthdays in particular. Making one specially for someone shows how much we care. The same applies to learning to make their favourite dish, or passing on your signature recipe.
The food and drink choices we make expose aspects of our personality. What we give to others, and the care we take when doing so, can be even more revealing.
Sharing food helps build, or repair, relationships. It creates and recreates traditions and brings back memories – if that’s what we want.
Whether you prefer unsweetened black coffee, or milky tea, rich sponge cake or something savoury, this collection of 25 stories provides the perfect snack.
Every Wednesday Evening #writingchat
Each week there’s a themed writing discussion on twitter from 8-9 UK time. I’m one of three co-hosts and take part whenever I’m online at that time. Everyone welcome to join in – just tweet using the #writingchat hashtag.
Third Tuesdays Solent Writers’ Circle
I’m a member and the treasurer of Solent Writers’ Circle, which meets in Lee-on-the-Solent. We’re a small friendly and informal group who currently have space for a new member. See the website for more details.
