The word "even" appears in a myriad of songs. I wanted to hear more of a group I featured a few weeks ago Maroon 5. My nephew tells me that all of the women in this music video are famous too - although the only one I thought I recognised was Jennifer Lopez. I will … Continue reading You Spent The Weekend Getting Even

Last week, we needed to use up some of the tubs inside the fridge. We pick up tubs from Bailey & Sage - and then put them into the fridge and forget about them. So supper turned out to be some tagliatelle using the fresh pesto we had bought with some olives on the side … Continue reading Montepulciano D’Abruzzo
Weeks ago I followed a recipe that left me with four or five egg whites. The most delicious solution to having excess egg whites is of course meringues. They lasted for weeks and we tried lots of different toppings. These were our raspberry, chopped pistachio and honey meringues - an easy quick and perfect pudding!
I had to toss a coin to decide whether I would feature Lulu or Phil Collins today - you will see who won. This is such an iconic song and it still works it's magic on me every time I hear it. Whenever I see a video of Lulu performing "Shout" I am always struck … Continue reading Shout!
I was doing so very well with my healthy eating drive - until, after a five mile walk, I came home and felt I needed to nibble on something to restore my energy levels. The most convenient snack to hand was Marks & Spencer's All Butter Goat's Cheese & Rosemary Crumbles - tiny little buttery … Continue reading There Goes The Diet

I am sure the extra sleep is good for me. But when I open my eyes in the morning, rather than feeling … Continue reading Sleeping Like A Baby

They want a clean earth. They don't want war, crime, disease, abuse, racism, pollution.....and the list goes on and on. Today … Continue reading Most Of Us Want The Same Things
I feel a little relief as I write this post. The older members of our family have all had their vaccination. I have been anxious about them since last spring. Now I feel a little better. We still have to be careful, but yet it does reduce my worry for them. They were all very … Continue reading Anxiety Levels Reducing
Low and slow my Italian friends always tell me is the secret of making delicious tomato sauces for pasta dishes. I make many different twists on a rich tomato sauce, often according to simple recipes friends have told me they use. Always low and slow, and usually that means at least an hour of very … Continue reading Sofrito Sauce
I am sure that this was not my first song choice for this week. However, as I had a total mind blank after the holidays I decided to search out some new inspiration. I found our "Colour Of My Love" album from Celine Dion, which I have not listened to in many years. I felt … Continue reading Just Walk Away
