Not your average sushi…


Not your average sushi… Being a vegetarian since the late 1980’s, sushi was one thing which I was never really aware of.

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…
