simple pleasures (5) [moving swiftly onwards]

Of all the foods which begin with 'ch' cheese is my favourite. I like cheese which comes arranged on a board with a curvy knife, or offered from large baskets in French restaurants and then placed on your plate in strict 'eat this one first' order. I like posh organic farm cheddar, epoisse, and darilylea and spent much of my childhood hankering after edam and later babybel, but mostly I like sneaking to the fridge repeatedly after dinner to cut slices from the supermarket cheddar and stuff it naughtily into my mouth while I stand in the middle of the kitchen floor looking out of the window. Last weekend this habit led to my falling flat on my arse in the kitchen, but that is another story.
