Sorry for the late post this week, I took a day off work yesterday, and hit the Edinburgh Fringe with Cat and The Boy. It's been a bit of a hectic couple of weeks in one way or another, so I'm going to keep it brief today, with a recipe for mayonnaise. Hellman's might claim … Continue reading Home Made-onnaise
I recently gave up drinking for a while, to see how it affects me. Since The Boy came along, I've struggled to keep fit. I used to play sports three-four days a week, and I'd walk to and from work every day. I even managed to train for, and run, a marathon in 2015.

I still dream about the … Continue reading Review: Amazing Food + Exquisite Beer = Mind Blown

A nostalgic trip to a Turkish kebab shop in Dundee this week has got me thinking. I've always been into food. My best mate Chris reminisced in his best … Continue reading This week I’m mostly: Confessing Some Weird Food Habits
I am greeted by the smell of wood polish and mildewed bibles, so familiar to me from many years enduring the indignity of Boys Brigade. I always like to be early, but it has taken all my courage to make it here today, and after a sob in the car park, I have arrived two minutes … Continue reading This Week I’m Mostly: Giving up Love Island and Fixing you Some Super-Simple Economy Noodles
