I haven’t posted to the gallery for ages but it’s time to jump back in. This is my post for the gallery this week and the theme is Eyes. This is a series of images which I took on Photo Booth using the Kaleidoscope filter while goofing around on my latest tech haul road-testing my […]

Appearing on reality TV shows is a career booster for many flagging stars, but when it comes to politicians, quite the opposite seems to be the case.

GIRLS-Lena Dunham tv series

slow cook ribs spices

When we stayed in Ibiza this Summer, our friends introduced us to a lovely local cafe which made traditional Ibicencan food.  We delighted in lamb casseroles, chicken wings, tortillas and ribs and let’s not forget the bakery.  I’ve never liked ribs but these were something else and my daughter became an instant, carnivorous fan. Needless […]

lush fun 4

There is no denying that Lush is a great place to get fun handmade toiletry stuff and things for kids.  It manages to remain interesting and environmentally sound without being too worthy or earnest.
