A Permanent Disruption to Service

This is a hard post to write.

When I started this blog and Instagram page four years ago it was to pass the time until my family got back together and keep my interest in food and writing going. The cover photo that I chose for the Facebook page was ‘Families that Eat Together, Stay Together’ and it is with a heavy heart that I have to acknowledge those words are true.

Over the last couple of years for one reason or another we have not shared enough meals, we have not shared enough memories and we have not shared enough love and laughter to enable us to stay together as the unit we started out as.

It feels like a failure, but I know it is not. Over this time I have also grown and changed. I am no longer the person I was and I am no longer able to live the life I was living. It is sad and painful but it is also time to move on and I am very grateful for all the opportunities, memories and people I have met and been blessed with along the way.

Therefore, as I start a new beginning it is also time to retire this blog. Thank you to those of you who have followed, liked, shared, listened, laughed and cried with me along the way. You have made the last few years a joy.

Finally, if your own family is interrupted by time or distance then I wish you all the love and luck in the world. I hope you weather the storm better than we did and that you enjoy some delicious meals along the way.

Life is short and it is to be enjoyed not endured so sing like nobody’s listening, dance like nobody’s watching, love like you’ve never been hurt and eat like you’ve never had to squeeze yourself into a pair of too tight jeans.

With love and gratitude

  2. I just want to tell you – it hurts like nothing you could imagine just now – BUT down the line you will wake up one morning realising that you never knew what love WAS before… and you will be happier than you could have believed possible. I was married for 30 years and one day walked away from everything….. taking 6 black bags of clothes and leaving my half of the 4 bedroom detached house and 2 bewildered teenage children. Now I live beside the sea in a different country (Scotland) and just celebrated my 15th wedding anniversary. I wake every day wondering if I am still dreaming. Best wishes for the journey Barbara
