Just a short post from me, I don’t normally blog about food (despite loving it in a relatively unhealthy way), but last night I was in a hotel room in Leeds and sent a tweet asking for recommendations of places to eat in Leeds. The responses reminded me of all that is ace about twitter, the … More Bundo marvellous!
This is the first year I’ve not faced this dilemma as my amazing Dad passed away last month (you can read his eulogy here if you’re interested) but I’ve noticed that a post I wrote a couple years ago What do you buy a dying man for his birthday? has had a lot of interest … More What to buy a dying man for Christmas?
I was just looking at my blog and realising how full it is of cancer, death and dying. Now sure I’m cool with talking about that stuff but it does give (even me) the impression that my life must be horrendously difficult. That’s not to say it isn’t at times, but it is only at … More Jubilation weekend

A number of people replied with recommendations, but unfortunately I’ve lost their twitter tags so apologies if you sent one of these and aren’t getting your deserved credit.

I absolutely love it, in fact I think it’s one of the best pressies I’ve ever received…high praise indeed. A what I hear you ask? What is it? Why is it so cool? And why does … More Fitbit – Jiminy Cricket on a belt clip

A few of us have met once before and decided we’d like to meet up … More Innovation and a curry – what’s not to like?
This weekend I headed to River Cafe Canteen at Axminster. I’ve been a couple of times now and keep coming back – so something must be good. I thought I’d blog this time, mostly because I’ve got some piccies of the food that I thought you might enjoy. First up the actual canteen space. I … More If only canteen food always tasted this good
I’ve blogged once or twice about the Pizza Cafe in Newton Abbot – they’re the absolute best place to get pizza for miles around. In fact I’ve had people visit from all over and I don’t think anyone has ever been disappointed, their pizzas are amazing. The Pizza Cafe is small and independent, they have … More 4square pizza – ideas please
I realised this week that it has been too long since I cooked a meal from scratch, well with the exception of the roast I did the other week! When life gets hectic and busy I tend to cut corners and live off pasta and pesto…or worse still, crackers, crisps and houmous. I have been … More Curry creation
I’ve spent this weekend at a wedding in Suffolk and had the chance to watch a craftswoman at work! Betty had offered to make her cousin and his wife their wedding cake as their wedding gift. They were delighted to accept and had a particular idea about what they wanted – three tiers of chocolate … More The secret ingredient is love
