Play area


We’re on holiday. Heathrow has a soft play area next to the gate. Woohoo!

Goat has been got

Why, oh why, do some cookery programmes persist in that totally contrived, I’m just dropping into the shop, I’ve got a date night with my husband, a teevee crew just happens to be there pretense? It’s incredibly grating. It’s so strained and unnecessary — I want to see food being prepared and chatter around that, not a poorly-acted scripted setup reminiscent of a porno.

Also, is it strange that I am less willing to look up and follow recipes supposedly devised by fat chefs, because their diets are clearly less than healthy?

I watch a lot of Food Network.
