I reached a standstill. My head was racing through images of a balloon flying no where in particular, yet too far to touch anything.
I waited so long to develop my dream, but the hurdles were insurmountable. I had little funds, little support, especially at home. I was without transport, knowledge, talent, though motivation was high.

But…..people are reluctant to try new things & if you do manage to reel them in, sell the idea, how long can you keep them hooked on the idea of a HOMEBASED Kitchen making from scratch everything save the vegetables & packaging & meat.

There’s a set rule that ” people are used to the norm, whether this is based on mentality, envy, ignorance or some selfish loathing for someone living their dream, I can’t say. I can vouch for the fact that my children living here with me have grown so much in their knowledge of flavours, textures, blends, that this has bonded our faith in each other & our common ground that we feel closer with each hooray & don’t flake as easily when we hit a hurdle.
