Deciding to leave a well paid job is a big step. Would we manage with less income? Would I feel lonely and worthless being at home again? Far from it! I have stumbled across a deep sense of satisfaction. The freedom to be creative and fill my home with hand crafted treasures, having the time to plan and cook healthy meals for my family and the time to 'Just Be'. Living a simple life is truly something to aspire to for everyone.

A happy consequence!
I made a chocolate tart last Sunday for pudding. We don't often eat puddings, but it always seems appropriate on a Sunday! I had roll of pastry in the deep freeze that needed using.(yes it was ready made. I can make pastry, but it's so easy when ready made! Is that wrong?) The chocolate filling used 4 egg yolks and half a small tub of cream.
Ok so the pastry's not very neat, but it was ever so tasty!!
(In case you're wondering, it is neither vegan nor gluten free as my eldest daughter was away for the weekend so she didn't miss out)
This left me four egg whites and the other half a tub of cream, plus a small quantity of dark chocolate.....
From my leftovers, I made chocolate dipped meringues with orange cream! A very happy consequence indeed!
Jackson Pollock eat your heart out!
Two puddings for the price of one! Always worth celebrating in my view.
