I had so much fun attending a networking event this week in Balham, hosted by the wonderful All By Mama I'm not a natural networker AT ALL but I made my self get amongst it and met some really interesting people, many in the same boat as me. It's really encouraging to have a great support network, especially when you've taken the plunge both making a career change and working for yourself.
Looking forward to the next meet-up!
I'm not a massive meat-eater but if I'm going out for lunch or dinner it's definitely still something I often choose. For a treat on my husband's birthday we went to Smokestak for a boozy, meaty lunch. It's been on my hitlist for ages and we loved it!
My fave dish was the ox cheek cubes and anchovy mayo - delicious! I almost ordered seconds!
I loved the aubergine too - really sticky with loads of miso.
We went for cocktails instead of pudding and then legged it to pick the kids up.
It was a bizarrely hot September afternoon so we made full use of the outside benches, but I can't wait to come back in winter and sink a few red wines in the smokey inside.
