I’ve been a busy bunny lately with a few things so the blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Just looking at my messages and apparently I have new ‘Followers’. My lord I’m so popular! My blog is reaching the masses! I’m going worldwide! But I’ve got to be honest, some of them […]
It’s been that time of the year here in Hull. The largest traveling fair in Europe comes to town for a week of chaos. The noise, lights and the aroma of burgers, burnt onions, hot dogs and chips fills the air. For some reason coconut’s are always on every stall. Millions of them. Brown, hairy […]
The Wedding (part three)
This drive was relatively easy. Three hours up through the Yorkshire Moors then into Cumbria to a tiny Hamlet called Hutton Roof. The house we were staying in was quite old with an odour of ancient, fusty carpets. It says 1874 above the door and I think that’s the last time it’s been decorated. The […]
Greetings from Hradec Kralove! Well the language barrier seems to be getting bigger, not smaller here. I had a conversation with a lady behind a meat/cheese/salad counter yesterday. It started badly, then got worse and ended up a car crash. I was glancing at the coleslaw, all different kinds and it all looked a bit […]
What the hell is that I hear you cry! This humble dish is a Hull Pattie. When Egon Ronay, the well known food critic tried one he wept tears of joy and had to be dragged out of the chippy, screaming for more…It’s a local delicacy that will make those taste buds dance the fandango […]
All I want is a sandwich….
A couple of weeks ago I went to a place I vowed never to go back to….My first experience there was horrific… A nightmare that left me emotional scarred for life…I still can’t eat a chicken sandwich without having a flashback……. Many moons ago we were doing a bit of shopping and my wife said, […]
Good God what is it with rice? Put two cups in it said. Put water in it said. It didn’t say you now have enough rice to feed the Chinese Army and let’s face it, they have a lot of soldiers. It’s like the magic porridge pot. So it’s rice on the menu for the […]
As some of you know on here, I’m not the most technically minded individual. Not for lack of trying though I’m just thick. I was having a look around the ‘view admin’ area here on WordPress and bloody hell I have over a hundred spam messages! At first I thought I was just popular but […]
Kale v Bacon.
I’m sat here listening to the radio,( Queen. Another one bites the dust. What a tune!) taking my morning concoction of tablets for the old ticker and enjoying a tray of fruit. Definitely more than five a day. Healthy body, healthy mind I tell myself, wishing I had a bacon sandwich instead, with fried mushrooms […]
