soiree with peta mathias

as many of you already know, last tuesday we hosted a soiree with peta mathias at the little brown house. there was so much we loved about the evening, not least the fact that you all came out in force supporting us by being there or by sending your love from afar. there were lots of other things we loved too and (so that we can try and keep the memory of them fresh!) we’d like to share them here.
everyone loved peta because:

her talk was impromptu – totally honest and obviously not rehearsed.

she made us laugh.

she helped us believe that it is never too late.

she made us love red wrap dresses even more than we already did (as did the red wrap dress pip donned for the evening).

when she sang one of edith piaf’s songs, we cried happy tears and felt instantly teleported to paris.

her energy and enthusiasm lifted our spirits, infusing us all with a “well, why not?” attitude we will all value and draw on for a long time/

her talk made us really, really, really want to go on a trip to marrakech with her.

and it made us want to go to the south of france even more.

but mostly (and here’s the best bit), she helped us all to believe in ourselves that little bit more by having the ability not only to laugh at herself but by also putting on a little light in everyone’s heart that evening.

merci mille fois peta xx

we’ve also got to add:

watching sharyn prepare the scrumptious platters and chatting with her as she did so was the perfect pre-event thing to be doing. her flair and enthusiasm was infectious. what a wonderful lady! many many thanks and big big love to her … and let us not forget her husband johnny who thought it would be a good idea to have just such a soiree at the little brown house in the first place.


we love you all!

p.s. we know some of you were disappointed on the evening that some of peta’s books sold out. we’d like to let you know that the publishers have now sent more (youpi!) and if you would still like a signed copy we can organise a bookplate to be added easily enough. just email or call us and we’ll sort it out for you! (but be aware that limited numbers are available).
