6 weeks said the doctor

6 weeks said the doctor! And that is how my life was changed temporarily. Now I'm not a great one for going to the doctor especially the dreaded lady bits checkups. But with a "0" birthday looming I thought I'd better pop along & get stuff looked at. I was 18...

Want the goss?

I've thought A LOT about this blog, my Facebook page, which direction to head to next and what I want to realise. Many a moment of panic and indecision with a side serve of "will this really work?" I've known what I didn't want quite clearly but the want was a little...

It’s been a while crocodile Part 1

Yes, it's certainly been a while between drinks (or in this case, blog posts!) Facebook algorithms and the lack of interaction really got to me at one point late last year and I thought "Sod it all" and put this little blog on the backburner for a while. But absence...

Confused? Yep me too

Is anyone else as confused by food as me? I don't mean that a creme brûlée keeps me awake at night or that prawn dumplings tie my stomach up in knots - I mean all the so called "rules" about what we should or shouldn't be eating make me confused. I've recently started...

Renovation ideas and update

A blog post this week which doesn't have a theme as such - an update on our renovation, my ideas for decoration, some images of the last few cooks I've done. In other words a melange, a mixed bag or random miscellany. Council approval for the roofing has been given...
