Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Penguins and Bandits

J.  Penguins and Bandits, always in the pantry!  I'd forgotten all about them!  Remember when we progressed from reading Mallory Towers to listening to Noel Edmunds and Radio Luxembourg.  Luckily I left my childhood sweet-tooth my childhood.  Now savoury...I can be tempted every time!
Nelson, my son-in-law once catered a cocktail party for me at our house and made your miniature yorkshire puddings with a miniscule slice of roast beef, a drop of gravy and a dash of horseradish sauce in the middle.  He also made miniature scotch eggs with quail eggs.  People followed him around all night!

Like you V.  I have very fond memories of our Sundays at home and with each of my kids having lived in England for a while, they too treasure the tradition of a good Sunday roast (even my Colombian kid).  A meal to linger over with family and friends.
