All Change..........

The time has come, I have been putting it off for ages ....... probably about a year .... but finally it's time to change things up a bit.

Those of you that have been with me from the start will know that all this 'blogging' started as a bit of a dare thanks to my youngest stepson, who was then then egged on by my husband. I didn't really believe that anyone would see anything I posted, would read it or actually show any interest, I also wasn't too sure what I would blog about, how it would evolve and how important a name and web address would be.............. which is why my title is sooooo long .......what was I thinking? ........ initially I was looking for a name that would encompass any direction the blog took  - but really  - I have to admit I got it wrong......... which I realise every time someone asks for my blog name or address, I see their eyes glaze over halfway through telling them - so the plan has been to come up with a new shorter name!

I wanted something food related, I wanted it to be snappier and unique, I wanted something cool, trendy, stylish and chic....... but above all, I needed it to be short!!!!

So over the last few months we have had our thinking caps on and have been running new names and ideas passed each other many rejects, and then one day a few months ago ........ we both suddenly said ''Vanilla Salt!''

Due to a happy accident, Vanilla Salt, has become a 'thing' in our house - inadvertently, some vanilla pods were placed into a jar of sea salt - instead of the usual sugar - to keep them fresh and the resulting flavoured salt had been rather good sprinkled on sweets, vanilla ice cream, fruit etc........A quick search told me no one else had thought of the idea  - for a name not the salt flavour! - so that was it - name solved!

And if I'm going to have a name change then a new site look was also called for. I launched the new look last week - I hope you like it! - and the new name, along with a few extra tweaks will follow shortly.

So instead of just dropping the changes onto you all! I have decided to give everyone a heads up, to watch this space and by the beginning of February the new name should be in place ................

Have a great start to your week
