Summer holidays are oft fleeting when you’re an adult and it’s usually because they last a week or two and then we’re back in an air conditioned office, held together by the continuing spool of time once again. This summer though was not like most and it was one I looked forward to with much…

What are your summer plans and what are you most looking forward to for…

Weekend: Part 2 – Roasted Strawberries and Custard

Sunday was a classy affair with a surprise from my best friend, a woman who is the most giving, selfless, thoughtful person I know. After a rough past year, a pact was made that no gifts would be given (her birthday is a few days prior to mine). As usual, she couldn’t stick to this and advised…
