    Obviously, good wine tastes great. It’s also quite the tonic apparently: poorliness like sore throats and swollen glands are no match for a glass of Merlot, they say. It doesn’t even have to be that good a wine to have the same effect on our arteries as would a pipe brush. So, all in all, […] More

    Sprouts are for life, not just for Christmas!

    Brussel Sprouts are known to be the biggest dinner plate hate in the UK. But why? Is it because of their bitter taste or their eggy smell? They’re cute looking miniature cabbages and at first glance or placed in front of you like the image below, you’d think they taste good, but if not cooked properly, […] More

    Origami Day: Get Ready to Fold

    Beautiful Origami

      Origami Day 2017 Since we were children we have made paper aeroplanes. It may seem simple, however, this is the most basic form of Origami. I personally couldn’t make a paper aeroplane as a child. I was more likely to rip or tear the paper rather than fold it. However, despite my incompetence, I will […] More

    Beachwear: The Best and Worst

    Beachwear - the best and worst!

    Ah beachwear! It’s come a long way since the flannel bathing gowns of the 19th Century.
