The 40th International Food Fair of The Hague, and the 2nd with me as Food Booths & Volunteers Coordinator, was held last Saturday. Despite us being in the middle of a triple dip recession, we managed to raise nearly €44,000 (€43,957 to be exact), to donate to good causes around the world.

For the last few weeks, I've been busy helping my mum find somewhere else to live, and hopefully we'll hear from one place that looks promising soon. Back in April, I wrote that she'd been burgled...well, she was burgled again in the last week of October, and this time, whoever came into her flat felt it necessary to trash the place before they left. Mum stuck to her mantra of "this is my home and I'm not moving" for 2 days, before agreeing to let us look at other options more suited to her age and impaired mobility (she acquired a Zimmer frame earlier this year). Fingers crossed, we'll get to arrange her move before I fly out to California.

Which, incidentally, will be in January.

I think I might be more excited by your unexpected three weeks in Cali than the new job, but of course, it won't be a holiday so I have to be sensible.

I hope you do find something suitable for your mum soon, is she still frightened to stay in her flat though?
