Photographic proof that I have had no time to blog since I got back to guernsey two weeks ago. I had over 100 traditional rich fruit Christmas cakes to marzipan and ice, and that was just for starters. My wonderful ‘partner in crime’ Jan and I decided to take a popup shop in St Peter Port to raise money for the children’s ward at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, and the wonderful charity Mary’s Meals. It was hard work to open and stock the shop for 6 days, but the final total £2500+ ($3900) made it worthwhile. We have raised a similar amount from just one day in previous years but a big chunk of that was money made from a tombola and serving teas and coffee with snacks, none of which we could do in the small shop space.

We are grateful to OSA Recruitment who offer the space free of charge to charities- a nice gesture!

Normal life may resume 🙂

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
