April 18th, 2017 / 0 comments

When it comes to keeping the household fed and watered, I’ve had my fair share of culinary disasters attributable to my poor sight. Never mind disasters which, well, just were. The Passion Cake pouring itself all over a work top instead of cooling on the rack comes immediately to mind. Baked for a Special Birthday. […]

The Idea of woman dragging there men to the shops has certainly been one routinely occurrence that has been on its way out even since I was a boy growing up.  Maybe this is why when you grow older and when its finally your turn to accompany your wife or girlfriend to the shops, that […]

    If You Can’t Stand the Heat. . . I’ve just crammed 23 Oat Crunchies into a box. There should have been 25, but one disintegrated on removal from the baking tray, so Miss Pupkin and I used it for quality control.And it was only when redding up, I discoverd a stray plapped on […]

The Ice is Coming Down  Every winter, one of my Senior Aunts would announce, “Aye, it’s jist weans and daft folk who like the snaw.” As one of the afore mentioned weans, I took this as further proof grown ups were a strange breed indeed. To me, snow meant scrambling over the kirkyard wall and […]

Don’t know what you have till it’s gone! With Christmas looming, I’ve plenty to do. Presents to track down; the annual Address to the Commonwealth, well, that sounds much grander than the Christmas Letter, to compose and recipes to scrutinise. All of which tasks make me grateful I’ve mastered enough Braille to select delicacies from […]
