On this beautiful unexpectedly warm September’s day I left the house with a knot of despair bubbling up in my stomach. It grew and grew and even watching Squeak jump up and down in his pushchair as he saw a double decker bus couldn’t lift my spirits.

I felt every sad moment of my life as we walked past Marks and Spencer, offended by the sunlight streaming into my eyes.

I berated myself. I told myself nothing was really wrong. I let myself feel those insecurities which peck away at me when I’m less strong.

I sat down in the cafe. I ate a slice of cheesecake. That raspberry goodness, that crumbly delight. That cheesy creamy niceness sandwiched in the middle. Washed down with a cappuccino, GONE is my hopelessness. I am sparkly and light all over again.

Am I some sort of cheesecake addict, in need of regular doses? Maybe it’s a sugar thing, except I scoffed a bag of caramel crack a jacks before leaving the house.

Either way, my fruity flavoured life line, I shall not underestimate you again. πŸ˜ŽπŸ°β˜•οΈ

  1. Ah, I have a similar relationship with cheesecake…and Victoria sponge. And Gateux. And Trifle. And Scones. I could go on, but you get the jist! Glad you found a pic-me-up in the midst of tough day. We all need a bit of cheesecake now and again! #FamilyFun

    1. Thanks Tammymum! True – it is fairly harmless provided I stick to slices and not entire cakes (I have learnt not to make cheesecake at home).


  3. There is nothing better than an afternoon pick me up. Scratch that, there is nothing like a any time of the day pick me up! I eat breakfast at 8ish and by 9 I’ve raided the snacks!! Thanks for linking up to #familyfun
