All my life I’ve been told I’m ‘blunt’, or ‘matter of fact’ or maybe ‘direct’, depending on whether the person saying it is trying to be blunt themselves or in fact trying to spare my feelings. Or as my father used to say, ‘You don’t suffer fools gladly’. It wasn’t something I was aware of as a child but as I grew older I became aware that I’m not blessed with tact.

Overdosing on cream


One of my all time favourite foods is cream. I think I developed this particular passion as a child from my mother who literally pours it on her cereal, is as thin as a rake and incidentally has excellent bones. To justify, I like to think I’m following the paleo diet and being kind to my body rather than giving in to an apple or a tomato.

A chef extraordinaire

Baked potato and beans
Now, I’ve just come back from a weekend away with a friend who doesn’t like food much. She does eat of course, it fulfils a basic need but she is a ‘’I’d really rather not, thank you’’ type. My friend suggested a weekend away.
