Valentine’s eve…

In all the 14th of Februaries that passed during our relationship, I’m not sure if my beloved and I ever spent one together. We were often separated by work or geography but I can’t say it ever bothered me. Like most of the people I hope are reading this, I have a healthy disdain for […]

GOODE & WRIGHT REVIEW/ LO CAL SALMON

I’m doing this stupid Fast Diet. It’s only stupid on actual fasting days. The rest of the time I’m borderline evangelical about it. For those of you who are ‘naturally thin’ (yeah, right) or have been under a weight-loss rock, the eating plan involves eating exactly what you like for 5 days a week and […]

BUFFALO MILK ICECREAM & REESE’S PIECES SAUCE

I am offering up no justification for this. I might as well smear it straight on my bum because it’s going there immediately anyway. But I love ice-cream and chocolate sauce. Today I used my absolute favourite. Laverstoke Park’s Buffalo Milk Icecream in its natural flavour. It is so tasty you’d swear it had vanilla […]
