Easter Wishes

On Good Friday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to share a traditional family meal (Pickled Fish) with a guest. This dish is usually consumed with much relish by myself and my cousins. When it's not been possible to do so I've pushed this meal onto resistant friends who have become like family to me. Luckily they now savour it as much as I do. Sharing this meal reminded me how important the sharing of food is in many cultures and I sincerely hope you have the chance to share your Easter meal with your loved and dear ones.

Cherish each other and give thanks for time spent together. I'm certainly making the most of those around me at present.

Wishing you all a rejuvenating Easter. May your projects bear fruit, your dreams become reality and your family & friends share in all your joys.

Happy Easter

    1. Thank you very much Unknown. Not sure I can exactly call it a recipe since measurements are not a part of the notes on the bit of paper stuck into my notebook. Will however have words with those who understand these mathematical/scientific methods better than myself and see what we can come up with.

I stood there, eyes shut, head tilted to meet the day and promptly sneezed humungously.  I recall this happening to me as a child.  It appears I'm still afflicted. Why does this happen?  I pondered  So I G o o g l e d it. Because:  a) the laptop is in the next room  b) it can be accessed even with one hand still wrapped around a cup of tea and c) I think a trip to the library for this sort of diversionary tactic is a little excessive And discovered an actual syndrome called Photic Sneeze Reflex .  18 - 35% of hu

Finally it’s here. The poetry collection which my Sheffield bestie Bev Cross and I have been promising you. Sincere apologies for the delay.

Your support is invaluable and immeasurable. £1 from the sale of each book will go to our respective animal charities. Bev’s Sheffield based chosen charity is cat-CHING . Follow them on Facebook  or Instagram to see the incredible work they are doing. Also, click on his image and take a moment to meet BBIII (aka Beaumont Barrington the Third), recently rehomed and now settled in the Fulwood area of Sheffield. Bev chose this charity because she admires the selfless work of the two women running it in their spare time. BBIII My chosen charity is Ebony Horse Club which is based in Brixton.
