Freelance writer Square Sparrow lives on a rambling smallholding in rural Scotland with her husband (HunterGatherer) and, now and then, their three offspring. Other smallholding incumbents include one overly indulged feline called FatCat, a similarly rotund Highland pony called FatHorse, plus a flock of rather attractive Shetland sheep – known affectionately as the Chocolate Sheep because of their rich assortment of wool colours (and because of Square Sparrow’s passion for chocolate).

The Miele steam train is coming to town…
Trainers at the ready...
It’s not often that you find yourself emailing your host to
ask if you need to bring trainers to a luncheon engagement, but that’s what I
found myself doing earlier this week when a reminder arrived in my inbox that I
have an invite for what bodes to be a rather intriguing culinary event in
Edinburgh this Monday.
I’ll write in more detail about this unusual lunchtime
engagement “after the event”. However, for now, here’s the email that spills
the beans (note food pun!) on what to expect…
We look forward
to seeing you at the Miele Calorie Neutral Restaurant on Monday 24th November
Please arrive a few
minutes before to get seated…
FORMAT OF THE DAY
You will be welcomed
with a Green Tea before taking part in a light Bodybalance™ class with Total
Health instructor, Craig Ali. (Please note that this class is not an
extreme fitness workout, and you will not be required to change your clothes.)
You will then be
treated to a delicious, healthy tasting menu cooked with steam. The food will
be made with Miele steam appliances and you will have the opportunity to talk
to Jacqueline O’Donnell and a Miele Home Economist about the appliances and the
dishes. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions throughout
We look forward
to seeing you next week!
The Miele Events
Despite being a keen athletic type (if still playing hockey
aged 51 qualifies me as such!), I have to confess to never having participated
in a Bodybalance™ class before, so I thought I’d better check what footwear was
appropriate – hence my email enquiring about the need for trainers. Hmm, perhaps
I should run from Kinross to Edinburgh on Monday, just to build up my appetite….
or perhaps not!
