Take a Seat and Pick Up a Book

It's Roald Dahl's birthday today - he would have been 100 years old and on the radio this morning they were discussing favourite parts of Roald Dahl books. Just a couple of weeks after Willy Wonka was in the news after the sad death of Gene Wilder it had me thinking about the film. I [...]

I've tried Pizza in New York...and Chicago...and Italy. My favourite is a really simple Italian pizza that I had in Sorrento...thin base, smothered in gooey melted mozzarella, topped with roasted baby tomatoes and generously garnished with fresh arugula.

The Glamour Sauce [...]

Those Priceless Moments

Life can be hard...sometimes it's a few bumps on the path and sometimes it's really major roadblocks that make you stop and assess what is going on, who you are and what you believe in. We're built to deal with the bumps without thinking about them too much...unless there are suddenly lots of bumps and [...]
