When I published the Afrikaans book, Toortsie se Bantingboerekos, I planned a photo shoot as soon as the book was published. I wanted to take photo’s of all the boxes and boxes full of books. But it didn’t happen like that.
You see, it took longer than I planned for the book to get edited and printed and at last, it was published om 16 December 2015. Holiday time! Chaos! Time to go to sea, so the photo shoot didn’t happen.
In the mean time, I totally forgot about it.
So, when the English Toortsie, Toortsie’s Banting Bash, was printed, I had the same idea again. I contacted a photographer, Lize du Toit, from Photography by Lize, the same person who took the photos for the book as well. We dicided on a time that suited us both and she organised the place, a nice guesthouse, Bredasdorp Country Manor, in Bredasdorp.
Oh, that was fun!
But, there is something else I want to tell you!
Anna-Mari, the owner of the guesthouse, asked me if we had a LCHF event in town, because Tim Noakes booked there for the night, he could arrive at any minute. I really was scared that he would arrive while I was there because I didn’t want to intrude. We were finished before he arrived and I left him a copy of Toortsie’s Banting Bash. He left me this lovely thank you card.
And no, this doesn’t make this book Tim Noakes Approved as this wasn’t what I asked of him. It was a personal gift to him, and a nice thank you from him. Nothing more. But to me it means a lot!
