It’s the little things

I’ve come to the conclusion that at the grand old age of 54 I’m finally approaching middle age. On my days off work I like nothing more than pottering around my garden with Radio 2 blasting out of my speakers. Don’t get me wrong I still love all the other free time stuff I do such as spending time with good friends/ family and travel. But gardening has become an obsession and Radio 2 is my best friend.

One of the things I love about Radio 2 are the features on the various shows throughout the day. So for the next few posts I thought I would write about a couple of them and what my answers would be if I could be bothered to call in.

The first feature I love is Claudia Winkleman’s Little Win on a Saturday morning. She invites a listener to pitch their little win against a celebrities. The little win can be anything, it just has to be something that made a difference to your day, even in a small way. Then the rest of the listening audience votes for their favourite little win.

I don’t have a celebrity to pitch against and let’s face it they are a bit overrated anyway! My little win happened at a lunch break at work; for pudding I had a Morrison’s extra luxury lemon yogurt and I found a packet of Nairn’s oat biscuits with fruit and seeds in my bag, for some reason I decided to dip one of the biscuits into the yogurt and hey presto I had lemon cheesecake and it was bloody lovely.

Most importantly it brought back memories of a short break my bestie Jane and I had in her friend’s beach chalet in Dunster. We were desperate for some pudding and didn’t think we had anything, I found rich tea biscuits, cream cheese and jam …..different components, same delicious outcome.
