My does the week fly by so very quickly! Had a great time at Sneinton Market last night, the mulled wine (when we got it warm tech issues as usual!) went down a treat, put a smile on people’s faces and a warm fuzzy glow on proceedings. It was great to meet Sally from Stripey Beetroot (awesome hummus and soup) and be reacquainted with Hanna of Green Revolution (vegan and raw food) fame. Both talented chefs and great fun to stand out in the cold with! It takes a certain kind of personality to run a market stall. Cheery optimism in the face of adversity and cold weather is key!
I have brought to my own attention that I haven’t announced that the hot beverages I sell are fair trade, which it definitely is. This is because I have a funny relationship with the concept. Not people being paid fairly, I wholeheartedly believe that everyone should be paid a fair wage (and to be able to live comfortably as a result) for the work they do. It is that I believe fair trade should be the norm, it shouldn’t be a specialised product. Products that are not fair trade should be labelled as really un-fucking cool (well perhaps minus the profanity) and facts about the dreadful conditions of the workers/workplace should be on the packaging. This to me seems the correct way of approaching the issue that many consume at the expense of the well being of others. Anyhoo that is enough soap boxing from me!
Please be assured that my beverages are all fair play.

Don’t forget party time is approaching! It’s £5 a ticket (please book in advance and pay on the night) which includes mulled wine and tasty snacks. Feel free to BYO and lets have a fabulous time. I am hoping to get some of the Lindy Hop crowd down and get everyone doing The Shim Sham (if you feel keen you can practice!) There will be awesome choons, dancing and happiness abound. See you there!
