Excitement is …


watching the end of an eBay auction. Well, it is when you’re selling something. Even if it’s not yours but really is the biggest, ugliest, most expensive printer you’ve ever seen. walking into the 5th shoe shop of the day and actually finding what you’ve been looking for (boots, sheepskin lined, flattish, WARM and comfortable)…

Things I fancy cooking


Trifle. No sherry, I don’t think it adds to the effect at all and I don’t like it. Walnut and pecan nut butter Chilli jam Cheesecake. I have never made a proper one – only weird lowcarb ones. I don’t think I fancy a baked cheesecake recipe even tho Naomi makes an amazing one. Or…

Keys
