The True Meaning Of Life- Judith Hindle

The True Meaning Of Life- Judith Hindle

I chose not to stage a pretty picture for this book review. I chose to show you how it is, in its true state. Raw and a little unpolished in places, I fell in love with its simple message and the unapologetic delivery of some things we may not be ready to hear, let...

Valid

Kate Garraway, still, amongst others, waiting for a loved one to return from hospital. I have followed that horrible journey, hoping for the best for her and everyone else in the same position. However, I cannot help but notice, that suddenly, the gutter press do not...

Act Quickly

  If a loved one wanted to apply for their licence to learn this year then you may have noticed that the DVLA suspended applications for Provisional Licences.  Covid 19 meant that they reduced to only essential services. Only critical workers could apply for...

When you absolutely have to

When you absolutely have to

Cheap Cheat Sundried Tomato Paste

I adore sundried tomatoes. I can, and sometimes do, eat them with mozzarella and olives, smothered in their flavoursome olive oil, perhaps with a drizzle of balsamic glaze. They are an absolute treat. It is no secret amongst my friends that I am always penny pinching...

‘Gross’ Pizza,  Mandarin, Anchovy and Olive

‘Gross’ Pizza, Mandarin, Anchovy and Olive

To the absolute dismay of Manchild 2, I was in the kitchen earlier eating little bits of mandarin orange and anchovies. Trying to decide if I was going to chuck them together on a pizza. He declared me 'gross', and I partially agree. For I am one of the worlds biggest...

Comforting Creamy Ham, Lentil and Oat Soup

Comforting Creamy Ham, Lentil and Oat Soup

One of my favourite bowls, is one which contains a hearty soup or broth. If it can have dumplings smuggled into it too, then I am a happy girl ( Middle aged Woman). If there is a lack of dumplings then bread torn eagerly fits the bill. Or have more broth. You will be...
