My main focus for today was pies!! Every year (apart from last year obviously) I have the great privilege of being a judge at the British Pie Awards! As I’ve been doing it a good few years I am now usually a class leader where I help the less experienced judges if they need help.

To some this might be a dream job and yes it is a lot of fun and I get to catch up with some great friends and colleagues. But it is also quite technical too, it’s not simply just eating the pie and seeing if you like it, we look appearance, baking, pastry thickness, texture and taste, filling texture and taste. The perfect pie has a score of 100 and any defects we take off this score.

This got me thinking about my life and this transformation and what if I looked at my life and kind of scored it in the same way what would I find.

I’ve already got a number of areas I want to work on so I could create a scoring system to see how I feel I’m progressing with that area. I know I probably need to think what “perfect” looks like to me in each area and then how far I feel I am from this ideal.

This is the job for tomorrow evening!

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
