Hi,

Welcome to Janey Painey’s Puddings and Pie.

First, let get something straight.  I am not a foodie.  Foodies like to cook.  I usually end up charcoaling my food, and live off the ingredients I have in my freezer.  Foodies enjoy trying new restaurants and cafes. Whereas (till very rencelty) I dreaded going out.  I had Post Tramatic Stress Disorder.   I had been a normal happy thirty year olds, and then I wasn’t.  In recent years there have been times when I have been too depressed to leave my bed. I have been claustrophobic.  I have been agoraphobic.  I have cried over the studiest things. I stopped eating. I spent most of my time on my own, or working out.   I did what I had to do to stay alive and survive.

Things have been changing very recently.  Yes my group of friends have got smaller and smaller, but my relationships have got stonger. I dont get that dreaded feeling because I have to step outside my front door.   It has taken me over three years, but I want to live again!  I want to learn the cello! And attend a stainglass workshop!  I have my freedom back.

Last year, one of my friends suggested we work our way thought the nine best local places, according to the Liverpool Echo, to have icecream (http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/whats-on/food-drink-news/ice-cream-liverpool-nine-best-9433846) .  It has taken me a while to build up the courage, but a week ago we finally visited Maddie’s Gelato and Waffle Bar, and it was nice (told you I am not a foodie). This is the inspiration behind me starting this blog.  Now seems like the perfect time to start.  On Friday I am flying to Australia.  Over a three week period, I am hanging out with friends and family.  But I have 6 days on my own.  It had been years since I have travelled alone.  And I am scared that I will be too scared to leave the hotel. So here is my plan.  I am going to go to different icecream parlours; and pancakes houses; and try different puddings. I know a pudding cant make you happy; it cant give you a hug; and it cant make you feel free.  But an icecream sundae can make you excited; a pudding from your childhood can comfort you;  and the search for a taste sensesation will set me free.

Im a different person today than I was 4 years ago.  But one thing has remained the same.  I still love my puddings.
