Most people dream of holidays in exotic places staying in a luxurious hotel overlooking a sun drenched ocean; I dream of visiting Ode Café in Shaldon, Devon situated in Ness car park overlooking Teignmouth (which looks a lot more exotic by night than day). Last week my dream came true - burgers on the menu, yes, but not some dubious squashed greasy affairs with a seasoning of horse DNA, but a choice of either prime Riverford organic beef burger or extremely tasty home made local wild venison burger, both well under a tenner (£8 in fact) – and they come with French fries and delicious organic salad leaves, too.

Following a rather dry December, the Devonshire skies finally opened in January as I made my ‘step outside’ as a full time garden volunteer for the National Trust at Knightshayes. I received many thoughtful messages during that week from friends and family concerned about how I must be feeling having spent my first week in wet weather. But their worries were unnecessary – working in the rain was a wonderful initiation to what is no doubt going to be a challenging yet life-affirming year ahead.
