In the absence of rampaging sheep this week and with precious little time to create anything new and delicious in the kitchen of late, I have been thinking a lot about what it takes to go in search of the good life.
I watched a wonderful TV programme the other evening about a fairly new business run by a young couple, near where I live. They made a conscious choice to look for the good life for themselves and their young family. Their business idea was good – growing a goat herd and making the milk into artisan cheeses – and I am delighted that they are being very successful.
But what really struck me as their absolute defining factor was their unwavering commitment to each other and their family.
That underpinned everything and drove all of their decisions. Both of them had their own responsibilities and had full trust in each other. Both respected ( and admired) their particular differences and what that brought to their lives and knew it was the bedrock of their success. You got the feeling that as a result of this, they put a lot of love into their products and had fun together doing it.
For them the good life is creating a livelihood that allows them to balance looking after their family and each other. You just know that that was the most important thing for them.
It was uplifting.
It was inspiring.

This is what I believe is the good life and I wish them every success in the world.
