Christmas Cheese

My sister says that I’m a difficult person to buy presents for. I’m not into ‘girly’ things like cosmetics, jewellery, handbags, shoes, perfume and aromatherapy. It’s funny, but I never had a clue that I was as difficult until she told me so at the weekend. To me, I’m simple. Books, baking … I never find it difficult to buy presents for myself 😉 .

Despite my sister’s protestations however, I’m apparently not that troublesome to please after all – for she managed to bring with her the perfect present. Cheese. To be more specific, a beautifully packaged parcel from Neal’s Yard Dairy containing three pieces of farm cheese wrapped in waxed paper. Stathdon Blue, Half Tunworth and Crockhamdale. Heaven!

    I am the same way, and knowI I am difficult to buy for – don’t go for jewels, clothing and such, but like you books and more books. And cheese, OH WOW – that would be heaven indeed. That is a great present!

  2. You can never go wrong with cheese! My beau’s parents sent me some Neal’s Yard Stilton and Cowgirl Creamery triple cream. I told beau that even if I dump him, I’ll be keeping his parents.
