My oh my – look what just arrived on our doorstep! The advance copies of “Little Book of Slow”.
It’s been a huge pleasure to have written this with the wonderful Paul McIntyre, ABC producer and highly respected playwright.
The book is about how to live more mindfully and meaningfully with simple tips on how to do so.
With respect to slow pastimes, Paul has written delightful chapters such as Throwing a Theme Party, Rediscovering Board Games, Slow gardening: bonsai, The Ultimate Slow walk: beach combing, Relax with a Perfect Pot of Tea – and so much more.
Mine of course – cookery related with chapters on cheese making, preparing a high tea, cooking over a campfire, planning an old fashioned and truly wonderful picnic, baking cakes, making pies, cooking for a fete and a great deal else besides.
Each of us has written 25 chapters with the underpinning theme of living more mindfully and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
Both Paul and I are very happy with our book – biggest thanks to our publisher ABC Books/HarperCollins.
The official release date of “Little Book of Slow” is January 20th.
