Things watched, read, looked at, and more this month. Just a list.
When we talk of creative fields, cooking is rarely mentioned alongside other artistic pursuits, rightly it’s carved out it’s own area despite sharing so much. To me it is one of the most challenging arts. Chefs not only think about aesthetics, in addition there’s flavour, smell and timings to think about when creating a dish. … Read More
Anyone who knows me will know how much I love reading. I love books. Certain genres and authors I now tend to gravitate towards but if something is recommended to me I will give it a go. You never know what you may discover. Family and friends recommend certain books or authors and more often than not … Read More
Ok not really. But yeah, kind of. Most of us are not being flown off to work covert missions in far flung corners of the globe. And while paper cuts are nasty, they can’t compare.

Get on with it I was complimented today on my writing and it gave me a renewed confidence. Enough so to come back here (probably briefly) and write. On the train home I was mulling over what my subject might be and it struck me that the spurring on of the compliment would be the … Read More
I’ve mentioned before about my annual to-do list, it runs from April to April and contains things I’d like to accomplish that year. It comprises, unsurprisingly, five sections each containing, more unsurprisingly, five items to-do. One of these sections is books I’d like to read and this past year Don Quixote was one of those.
