A little bit of Inspiration thanks to my perfect Grandma!!

 My Grandma is just perfect!!!  Her name is Anne, and Annabelle was named after her with a little twist :)   I was the first Grandchild and my Grandma looked after me quite a bit especially when my sister was born, apparently I would do anything for my grandma, i am sure it is true as i still would!!  We always had a very close bond and I could talk to her about anything, I would say in recent years we have drifted due to me started work and 'having my own life' as they say and my grandparents honestly have a busier social life to me, my partner and my mum put together!!! They deserve it though as they worked very hard to get where they are now!!

  When Grandma and Grandad had my mum and my aunty and uncle they hardly had any money( like us now) my Grandad worked hard and my Grandma did, they both had there own roles which worked well for them!! Grandad went to work, fixed the cars, the diy, the man things and my grandma was a housewife and looked after the children and my grandad of course!!!

  I look to my Grandma and admire her for how she coped, having 3 young children by 27, looking after them on her own and doing the cooking and the housework!!  It is hard, my house is a mess most of the time, well lets say i tidy and an hour later it is a mess!!   Cooking, well im not the most confident cook at all, my partner Phil is never enthusiastic about my meals, Yet he eats anything my grandma would cook him as she is an amazing cook, but as she keeps telling me it is due to practice!!  My Grandad does tell me that she did have a few disasters in the early days!!

   So I have decided that I am going to pluck up the confidence and cook at least one meal a week I have never made and I will blog about it and hopefully if its a success I will share my recipe with photos!!  If anyone wants to join me that would be brilliant!!!!
