A review of 50 first experiences

First 17 – learning how to make chocolate truffles

– with Sandra at the Cocoa House in York. Loved tempering the chocolate with the hairdryer, and putting my little beauties into a box with a ribbon, just like real chocolates! Followed by tea and chocolate biscuits, of course, with a little chocolate in the teaspoon.

Marks: 10/10. Hardest bit (apart from giving them away) – squeezing the truffle out of the piping bag. The obvious analogy – too many hard bits made for tiny little stools until finally one huge turd made the bag split and we had to start again. Easiest bit – licking out the bowl.

I turned 50 in June and have decided to write about some of the new experiences that happen to me over the next 12 months, not in a show-off way, but to remind myself (and any others that access this) that new experiences happen in all shapes and sizes. I suppose I'm looking at ways to remind myself of the positives. I'm also hoping this will spark off taking steps in a few different directions - what, I don't yet know.
