Cider – the good the bad and the ugly

15. July 2018 cider 0
Beer in my opinion is Bleugh! Lager is, according to my taste buds, lousy! The need for copious amounts of water for their production and the necessity for mega amounts of CO2 are just another couple of reasons that the aforementioned beverages do not appeal, we cider drinkers laugh at the need for such bubbles. ...

Sing along time 1….2….3….. Oh the weather outside is frightful But the fire is so delightful Since we’ve no place to go Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow It doesn’t show signs of stoppin’ And I’ve brought some corn for poppin’ The lights are turned down low Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow……..

Hello, the Valencia 1/2M is later this afternoon. Instead of my usual parkrun journey this morning, it’s a catch up on yesterday’s pre-breakfast amble.

You could easily spot the team athletes who had just arrived. They were wandering around looking a bit lost in their team tracksuits. Without the blue painted line ...

The snow is leaving

Blubber, Bananas, Bake!

It’s been a while since I baked anything, it’s definitely more than the six years since my Coeliac Disease diagnosis . I say bake, but it was really in its loosest sense, as I worked with the assistance of a bread making machine. The last bread maker retired a while ago after many years of ...
