So recently my glorious compadres, Danielle & Sam announced their engagement (YAY, Congratulations darlings!) and since then the topic has been all things bridal. Naturally, the much debated Hens Night has been approached, and a unanimous verdict obtained – NO HIDEOUS HENS NIGHTS.

For myself, and many others, the thought of squeezing into a child’s size tutu, donning a revolting hot-pink…

Taxidermy … let me just start by saying, What the Actual F#%k??

Dead animals, manipulated into lumbering poses, crammed full of sawdust and plastic and placed in our homes for ‘decorative’ purposes?

So with the days getting a little chilly of late, our favourite little internal munchy monsters are emerging for the winter, whispering in our ears our sudden desires for all foods comforting, hearty, cheesy, steamy and all round naughty.

My munchy monster happens to be in overdrive … A result of this is my outstanding ability to produce the most amazing and heart stopping toasted sandwiches.

I know I’m not the only person out there that enjoys the odd ‘funny cats’ video on youtube, I mean who are we kidding, EVERYONE loves to sit down to a solid 3 minute clip of viewing excellence, watching cats run into walls, leap in and out of boxes, fall of ledges and jump unexpectedly 4 metres in the air because something moved ever so slightly.

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen

There is imperfection in everything. A break…a fault…a crack. You’ll find it at some point, even if it’s the smallest of cracks. It lives everywhere.

So, it’s been a while. Oh don’t look at me like that, I know I’ve left you in the dark for the past … Well, months (oh dear), I didn’t mean to hurt you, it’s not you darling, it’s me! I’ve just been so busy, my life is a little crazy.
