Photography and Me

Isn’t it sad that Kodak have registered for bankruptcy recently? It got me thinking about what photography means to me. I cannot pretend I am a good photographer by any means – hey just look at the pictures on my blog for evidence! But I have always loved taking pictures and do appreciate other people’s…

Tuesday Tune

I must admit that I have done some googling on female guitarists for this feature. In my research I came across a few lists for *humph* the top “hottest female guitar players” etc – which I think I says it all really. I looked at the Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 greatest guitarists of all time…

Pizza Fail!

Oh dear it all went so wrong. What a disaster! The dough stuck to the worktop and fell to pieces when I tried to put it on my new-ish bargain Gino D’acampo pizza stone. It does’nt look too bad at first glance admittedly, but when you look closely you can see the uneven rising of…

Cupcake Decorating Part 2

Well following last weeks *ahem* interesting leopard print cupcake, this weeks lesson focused on the more traditional buttercream piped decorated cupcake. We were shown how to make a buttercream with a recipe using no butter (so that it will not melt and lose shape etc in the warmer months) and made some pretty sugar paste…

Tuesday Tune

For Xmas just gone Rob’s youngest niece asked for a guitar as her main present, from her parents I must add, not us – phew! So to see if she would actually use it, at his sister’s request Rob took around his acoustic for her to try out early last December. She enjoyed having a…

Got It Wrong Again!

I have been informed that something I have been doing for as long as I can remember is wrong.  The informer, my other half Rob said that I should not be putting two spaces after a full stop.  It just needs one like after a comma. Also I put two returns in for each new…

Tuesday Tune

I have decided to start a feature, whether I stick to it is another thing.  But I have decided to start Tuesday tune’s.  Basically I am going to inflict my musical tastes on my readers – Hello Mum!  Plus I can just post a YouTube clip and be lazy but fill my blog content. Forget…

Twhitt – Twhoo!

I can’t believe I googled “owl sound spelling” for the title of this post! I love owl paraphernalia, I have an owl cushion, an owl t-shirt, and owl knick-knacks galore. So when I saw this embroidery in my favourite charity shop, it caught my eye. I ummed and errrd over it though, as its not…

Pizza!

I love to bake and I love trying out new recipes. When I came across this recipe sometime ago, I just had to try it out as it blends together two of my favourite cuisines Mexican and Italian. Plus I am currently on a mission to use up all the tins of food in my…
