Fashion On Friday: LIVE From My Wardrobe 3pm

The game that I am playing at the moment involves moving my laptop around the house to find the coolest spot at any given time. I am pleased to report that I am currently winning, sitting in my cool little kitchen with the conservatory doors flung wide open. Being such a pale girl, getting used to the summer weather is … Read More

Foodies Festival Bristol PICTURES

(Photo: Simon Galloway) We had a blast in Bristol the weekend before last. The sun made a welcome appearance for our second Foodies Festival of the year and the crowds were fantastic fun.

Win a KitchenAid Mini at Foodies Festival Syon Park

I drafted this post yesterday, before the sad events that took place last night in Manchester. My initial thought was to delay or cancel this cheery post but I cannot do that; I cannot condone any change in behaviour, attitude, or routine in the face of acts of terrorism. My thoughts are with all affected – the bereaved, the injured, … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Barbara Windsor

It should come as no surprise that I am a fan of Barbara Windsor. I’ve had lengthy discussions with Chris in which I ponder why I love Carry On films so much and find other comedies from around that time (namely, On The Buses) to be so offensive. This is clearly a conversation for another time, preferably over a glass … Read More

Foodies Festival Brighton PICTURES

It’s taken me a little longer than I would have liked to share these pictures. From Brighton, I went directly into a very busy week in my kitchen with little time for looking through the many photos on my phone! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may well have seen some of these pictures already but I … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… The Duke of Edinburgh

Twitter¬†was on fine form last week… I wasted at least an hour on Thursday morning, hitting refresh over and over as I waited for an announcement from Buckingham Palace. One can only assume that countless emergency staff meetings are called at late notice within those walls but, somehow and for reasons quite unknown, the news of this meeting reached the … Read More
