What a surprise to read your wonderful newsletter and see my name up in lights, along with my dear hens and the dastardly python. Happy to report that there have been no more sightings of the python and the hens have started laying once again.
It sounds like your new cooking school at St Kilda is really taking shape, and the herb garden sounds extremely prolific. I would love to come on one of your cooking school tours in France, but unfortunately although we are going to France this year it is not until October. Maybe in a couple of years when we have saved up again for another European vacation.
Take care and thanks again for the mention in your newsletter
