Simple Pleasures….

Sometimes you want a feast, but without the effort…. Takeaway, nahh lets hit the deli section.

I have been craving a local cheese called Isle of Wight Blue, it’s is creamy, piquant deliciousness, they also do a hard cheese called Gallybagger (a local word for scarecrow) – have a look –

imageI use a wooden chopping board and place the cheese on it (take it out of the fridge for at least half an hour before serving) I add shelled walnuts, olives, jarred roasted peppers and sun blush tomatoes (Aldi), olives, grapes, sliced pears, various crackers, some HM Bread,  HM chutney.


Add a glass of wine and some great company (Hubby) – what more could you need…

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
