Re Introduction Nicola
« on: February 26, 2014, 07:19:48 pm »
Hi all

I used to be quite active here a couple of years ago but then fell of the radar.  I trained as a consultant 15 months ago, peeked in and then fell off the radar again.

Life(tm) has been unreasonably hectic over the last year or so.  DS1 was diagnosed with autism around November 2012 and DS2 was diagnosed Feb 2013.  The last year has been spent getting DS1 a statement of SEN and into the appropriate school setting because he wasn't coping where he was.  He's now moved to a special school for his secondary education and is loving it.

So with all that out of the way its time to refind my cooking mojo and get my Thermomix business thriving.  I've been building up to posting for a couple of weeks trying lots of new things and tonight posted a quick recipe review.  Its so rare that I cook something new and not only do all the boys try it but they actually really liked it!

Looking forward to being an active member again.

Us oldies remember you Nik.  Sometimes life gets in the way and we have to do what we have to do.  Glad to hear you are back on track now and look forward to reading your posts once more.  As you will see, the same old faces are still here but of course, a lot of lovely new members as well and we are still having a ball on here.  It's good news about DS and his new school.

Thanks for the welcome back everyone.  its good to be back.  Mojo is definitely coming back, have made several new meals this week - I'm working my way through the meat on the menu book.  I've had the book a while but not really "got into it" ...
