    I wouldn't be without my slow cooker Villasunday. Great to go out and not worry about the place burning down or food burnt. Thai green curry with the rest of the left over chicken, aubergines and green beans. Plain boiled basmanti rice. Very good.

    Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

    I'm sure your are correct in many aspects with the imminent influx of Hong Kongers. However, there are so many British people who have been on the housing list or living a unsuitable accommodation for years and often have difficultly obtaining benefits that are due to them. Understandably it...

    2021 Holiday Plans

    I went to Butlins in the 60's with a girlfriend. Kept my virginity - just !. Took the children for day trips, which they thoroughly enjoyed. We often got vouchers from the local paper for free entry, so it was a win win situation for us.

    What did you have tonight

    Had a delivery from dishpatch. From a restaurant called Som Saa. Thai Red Curry Feast. Far too many components to deal with (18 !) what with a few glasses of Champagne it was difficult. Probably good for Jaycey though - cooking by numbers !

    How can this be?

    There were two girls involved, if this is the same case. They both got a pay off. However, it cannot be right that a police officer keeps his job after any misdemeanour, especially sexual assault or rape. After all, they are supposed to be our pillars of society !

Thanks for the advise re pork crackling - did all that but still not good enough. Next time I'm going to cook it...
