Leave, Lincoln & Luscious Lasagne!


Leave, Lincoln & Luscious Lasagne! My laptop hasn’t been on since last Friday! I’m not (so I thought) interested in politics, but unless you’ve been hiding under a rock (or maybe in the desert) it’s a bit hard to avoid what’s been going on in the world. Even my primary school aged son came home and said they’d had their…

Don’t judge!


Don’t judge! What ‘DO’ you eat? or should I ask what ‘DON’T’ you eat? or even ‘HOW’ do you eat it? If you’re one of these people who actually ‘cares’ about what you eat (or where it came from) then you’ve probably been questioned about what you eat!? Or rather… what you ‘don’t’ eat!? Maybe people ask your advice about certain…
