I have got a mahooosive fridge freezer. It's wider than I'm long. It's 66"" wide, I'm 61" tall. I love it but the boys? Not so much! The problem is the doors weren't hung quite right when it was fitted. The fridge side is off slightly which causes it to reopen if you don't shut … Continue reading Fartichoke And The Revenge Of The Fridge

The LoCarb Diet, The Five-Two Diet, (SH)Atkins, Paleo, Dukan.. You know how it is girls, we've all tried all sorts of diets and none of them have made us happy. I decided it’s time to rewrite dieting. Life is meant to be enjoyed not endured so I give you this. The new and improved "I'm … Continue reading Does my Blog look big in this??
Titselina Bumsqueak, Fat Sharon and I used to haunt The Empire in Leicester Square on Friday nights. It was a sacred tradition, a no boyfriends invited, girls night out. It was the 80’s, Pina Coladas, enough make up to paint a bridge, shoulder pads and heels so high you needed oxygen to walk in them! … Continue reading Chips, Coppers and High Heeled Croppers
It really is a wonderful world. I'm sharing this today as a reminder to me that no culture is made up of purely bad people. There are good people everywhere, you just have to look. Years ago when the kids were very small I used to have foreign language students to stay while they were … Continue reading Roast Chicken – the Answer to World Peace.
I thought since it was St Patricks Day I'd share some photos of Ireland and my Grandma's recipe for Soda Bread. One of my favorite things in the world! Grandma didn’t actually use scales. She used an old tea cup to measure but I wanted to do it properly so I did as she did … Continue reading St Patrick’s Day – and how we can all have a little Irish in us!
*Sigh* Welcome to the latest round of The Bitchy One's "You-Couldn't-Make-This-Shit-Up.." I was back in England visiting my best friend and I’d gone shopping. While I was walking around in town I went into a sweet shop (candy store) to buy a curly wurly. I decided I could indulge myself! They had all kinds of … Continue reading Axis of Evil Cupcakes.
