I’ve been to cheese country

Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here lately. I won’t bore you with the details, but things have been bloody hectic for the wife and I lately, and they’re only going to get more pandemonic (it’s a word now, if I say so). We decided to run away for a week and went off to a little cabin, 12km down a dirt track in the middle of nowhere. Just me, Halinka and Penry the dog. Bloody marvellous.

Anyway, that’s why I haven’t been posting much. I did see this that I thought I’d share with you. We stayed near Bega, which is a town famous for its cheese. The cheese is even called Bega and there’s a cheese museum there. Rather cheese obsessed really, the whole place, but there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m a big fan of cheese. How many times can I write cheese in a single paragraph? I was pretty impressed when I saw this:

bega

Now, I know that’s supposed to be read as Bega-Cheese Training Centre (as in the training centre for the Bega cheese company). But I just can’t help reading it as Bega Cheese-Training Centre. I can imagine cheese in gym shorts and t-shirts, doing all kinds of exercises, getting in shape for the Cheese Olympics or something.

Like I said, I was on holiday.

Normal service will resume shortly.

  1. Did you ever go to Cheddar in Cornwall? The real home of cheese? Marvellous! Nothing like a small block of cave matured blue cheese and a pint of ‘Leg Bender’ cider to wash it down!!!

  2. So you decided to run away from your house in the middle of nowhere (that consists of you, Halinka and Penry) to a house in the middle of nowhere with “just the 3 of you”?

    Must have been a good break then!

  3. It’s the responsibilities and the ability of other people to contact us that we really ran away from. 🙂
