Hello Everybody .. still here in the Super king American Bed not a Lindor ball in sight – no chocolate has passed my lips for at least 16 hours my New Year diet has started already. It’s been a funny old Christmas in the Gardiner-Smith household, the new covid variant sent everyone into a tail spin – news reports were awful so I think most people were sensibly staying at home and Betty’s was a bit quiet for a few days before we closed – not the usual last minute shopping spree (think I spent more in Bill & Edna and the Tearoom than anywhere else) .. Lulu tested positive and we trooped off for a PCR, thankfully I was negative but Lulu, with little more than a cough was positive, so we decided Jake with his asthma shouldnt come home for Christmas – first time we’ve not been together .. took him 20 minutes to book a romantic cabin in a forest with his girlfriend 🙄
I’ve  been spending the afternoon planning courses for the new year, being careful again and limiting numbers. Jacqui will be running another beginners sewing course and I thought I would start a monthl free machine embroidery morning for you guys who have learned the technique and want to take it to another level. Jacqui will also be teaching the Cleo Dress in a day.
As I write this Jools is on with his Hootenanny (lost its sparkle when I discovered it was  recorded in October)  and 2022 has started.. oh and I’ve already broken into the chocolate.

Thank you for continuing to support Betty’s and I hope and pray you will have a safe and happy 2022 🙏🏻

Your (almost) choc free chum
