I had the most wonderful day out for my birthday yesterday. A visit to The Pig at Combe, near Honiton, a lovely country house with some top nosh and truly excellent service that was just what the doctor ordered (well not quite, but I was moderate at least!) Mel treated me, and Neil and Amanda were kind enough to come… Read more »

Taking advantage of reasonable weather and exceptionally pretty countryside, it was time to get out for a walk. 15 miles, skirting below Stiperstones and past Bog Village, a lovely loop across lumpy countryside. A short refresher at The Crown Inn in Wentnor, before a long climb up onto Long Mynd. Sadly, we times the summit with a shower that killed… Read more »

Couldn’t make our minds up today. Do we go to the Peak District as planned, or explore Shropshire which we don’t know very well at all. Would love to go back to the Peaks, but new places to explore are always fun, and well, we were really not that far away. So, tempted by Ironbridge and an alleged exhibition of… Read more »

Time to try and move on from some of that political nonsense and do a bit of travelling. We’re heading for Lincolnshire, with the intention of going via the Peak District, which we’ve enjoyed greatly in the past. However, unable to leave home till mid-afternoon meant that it would be good to break the journey, and so I opted for… Read more »

Gdansk – The Cuisine

Polish cuisine. I’m surprised there a many Poles left to be honest. You’ll notice the distinct lack of green things. The Pierogi are a bit like Cornish pasties, these being the baked variety, but you get steamed ones too which are more like dumplings. The Lody, or ice creams, are particularly dense and plentiful. We did a Tandoori meet feast,… Read more »

You may well have wondered what’s been going on. There’s been lots of house action in the last few weeks, with external and internal decoration happening, and some tidying, landscaping, and hedge laying. With a glorious spell of weather of the last couple of weeks, much progress has been made outside. Scaffolding is yet to come down so house shots… Read more »

Sometimes just tapping in the field is enough, you get dumped back to the home screen, and sometimes you need to start typing. The bug can be avoided by going to Settings > Safari, and disabling the option… Read more »
