It’s Friday night, and as much as I imagine my friends are out, gadding about town, all prettied up and consuming divine and vast quantities of food, (it goes without saying, alcohol), I am curled up on the lounge sporting new Ugg Boots, in front of the heater and watching Two Fat Ladies. (This positively raaaaaveshing show where it appears two hilarious gin drinking, cigarette smoking women have fallen into the set of Downtown Abbey and cook traditional English food).
Me. Mr Paul James Kearley esq. (esq = because why not?) commonly known to all as Pauly, has decided after many discussions with himself, to attempt to crack this thing called a Blog.
Why I hear the multitudes ask? I love food and travel, accompanied but multitudes of clothing and books. Everyone loves food, and if I could encourage one single person to consider cooking food and enjoying it after reading this Blog thing, I would consider flinging my chefs hat onto my hat stand and sit back with a piece of Flourless Chocolate Cake (albeit accompanied by lashings of cream) and smile.
I reside deep in the misty Blue Mountains, with a man who has gorgeous eyes and matching personality (who shall from this point be called ‘the man with the beautiful eyes’) and a cat called Winston. “Yes!” I hear you all clamour while rolling your eyes. “Another Wannabe Domestic Goddess, just what the world needs.” Well my friends you hit that nail on the head, although I like to think what I bring to the table (literally) is the best food you have ever tried.
About now your eyes are possibly starting to glaze over so I will keep it short and sweet. The Man With The Amazing Eyes and I have decided to have a mid-life crises early and leave our family and friends and move to England. While I’m there I will keep you kind and attentive people captivated in the world of European Travel and food with a bit of fashion and literature thrown in. The tickets have been purchased and we start our adventure in Jan 2016.
Before this happens, I will delve into our previous travel & cook books to share my most favourite recipes and recent travel experiences, because fellow humans if you are like me, you spend so much time dreaming of this.
Next weeks Blog will involve sinful chocolate and current reading matter, because this is basically a match made in heaven.
Enjoy my friends, I shall be brewing a fresh pot of Black Rose tea and staying warm.
