There comes a day when you have to let go of your children and send them out into the world. Hopefully if you have brought them up well, they will continue to grow and become better people.
I have decided it is time Donna left home. Born on October 20th 2005, she came into the world with a jar of peanut butter in one hand, a jar of nutella in the other. Since that day she has traveled the world spending time in Asia, America, Canada, Italy, New Zealand and Australia.
Like all young people she has done her fare share of youthful experimenting. She has tried them all - cupcakes, macaroons, biscuits, bruschetta, tarts, fritters, risotto, souffle, cheesecake, mousse, Caesar salad, sorbet, gnocchi, tarts again, terrines, pizza, coconut tarts, clafouti. No doubt there are more experiences she has in mind to try.
I said she could leave home but only if she bases herself with my good friend Bron Marshall. Bron is the earth mother I have never been. She has a garden, bakes everything from scratch, is kind to animals, has pets and home schools her children. I think Bron will be a good influence and help her to grow into someone pretty special.
Hay Hay Its Donna Day will continue. Bron will be overseeing things now. She will contact the winners and help them host each event and answer any questions you have.
It has been a privilege to introduce Hay Hay Its Donna Day to the world. I thank you all for helping her reach the stage where I am happy to let her go. I'm moving on to complete a couple of personal projects I've been working on recently. I'll still be around to enter events and keep a motherly eye on Hay Hay Its Donna Day.
