A Chinese & Thai Foodie Fakeaway Eve with Friends

Who doesn’t like a takeaway? Chinese, Thai, Indian, curry, fish & chips, cheeky Nando’s, pizza, burgers, kebab – the options are endless. Us brits love them. You only have to sit and watch tv and notice the endless stream of adverts that can confirm this – JustEat, Deliveroo, Dominos. It’s easier to eat in, than…

Tin Star is back!

The epic thriller featuring English actor Tim Roth has returned for its second series on Sky Atlantic. Same as the year before, you can either download all now to watch as you please, or watch it week by week. Tin Star, if you’re not sure, is a slang term for a sheriff in the United…

I’m just caught up with Luther..here are my thoughts

I’ve just caught up, finally, to Luther season 5. To say I was a little disappointed with it, is an understatement. Previous seasons have always been so deliciously suspenseful, with a gripping storyline, but season 5, I thought it would be just as good, but for me, it was a little drab. I know, I…

Birthday Cake bakerdays Review

Who doesn’t love cake? Marie Antoinette once famously said, “Let them eat cake,” and cake we shall eat. I love cake, it’s cake! I don’t think you need much more convincing than that, but cake is a need, a must really for almost all occasions, not just celebrations and birthdays. A few weeks ago I…

Food best shared with family & friends

The weekend before last we had family and friends over for Sunday lunch. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve seen everyone. Christmas was a quiet affair, we barely saw anyone. I think only now I’m slowly catching up with everyone of my own friends, everyone is just so busy cracking on with the new…

I had to rewatch all seasons of Luther, before I started season 5

I love Luther. I love Idris Elba. He’s brilliant. The part was written for him. Really, no other actor could play the character as well as him, which is no surprise really that the casting team couldn’t find an American actor who could compete with the English actor. If you’ve been on a different planet…

A walk down Government Acre

New Years Eve, we wanted to go on a little walking adventure. Christmas was mostly spent at home, with the occasional visit out, but we hadn’t done much together just the three of us. After a little visit to the park the day before, shop and walk home without the buggy, a huge smile on…

Formula and your baby

I spoke to a friend the other week about their baby and their formula. They had stopped breastfeeding so had decided to go on formula instead for a few reasons. But they noticed it took a few tries with different formulas before they settled on one, which seemed to work for a few weeks, then…

Christmas Lunch at Brewers Fayre

When it comes to Christmas, it’s usually a family affair. Last year Emily was so small, Christmas was hardly an event as she was so ill that a get-together with Sam’s brother and family on Boxing Day was planned around hoping she wouldn’t vomit at the Holden Horse. This year, our Christmas lunch with Sam’s…

Christmas Treat Box – Handmade Christmas Gifts

Christmas is for festive cheer, spreading the love and delicious edible gifts are the way forward this Christmas. Beyond the Christmas shopping that’s been done and dusted for a few weeks now, wrapped and awaiting the giving part, I thought a few friends could get edible homemade Christmas gifts rather than the usual standard presents….

Who’s watching The Sinner on BBC Four?

I’ve been watching The Sinner on BBC Four the last few weekends, and I totally understand why it’s been so popular. The American anthology crime drama mystery television series, based on the novel of the same name by German crime writer Petra Hammesfahr, is currently airing on BBC Four. Spread across 8 episodes, featuring Jessica…
