The Swindon Big Boom & Twitter!

I’m not talking business here, I’m talking an actual big boom! Around 6pm last night having just returned home we all jumped as a loud bang went off, the windows shook, the walls shook – even the shed could be seen quaking in it’s cement at the bottom of the garden…

5 Years in the Clear…

It’s taken a few days for me to get my head around this and post it, so I apologise for that! I had my annual Testicular Cancer checkup at the beginning of the week, after 5 years you think they’d get easier (they don’t and neither do me and needles!). Actually it was five-and-a-quarter years but I won’t go into that rant about appointments. I know, I know, it’s unusual for me not to go into a rant, but I have good reason…. I won’t be going back! After 5 years in the clear, I’ve officially been discharged from Oncology!

This is the third event of it’s kind! One “shredder” placed a piece of paper into the shredder that simply said “Writer’s Block” – she hopes to write a musical this year. For items that could not be shredded, the Times Square Alliance were most helpful in providing a sledgehammer and a large waste-container. What would we… Continue reading »

Economy Gastronomy!

I’ve recommended the TV show to a few people now – so I thought I’d drop a blog post about it up here! There have only been two episodes so far (Wednesday BBC2), but we’ve really enjoyed them and I’ve just found out they do a book… Two top chefs Allegra McEvedy and Paul Merret have devised the Economy Gastronomy system to aid people in slashing their food bills (never a bad thing in a recession!), whilst eating better than they ever have before! This covers people who don’t know how to cook, to those that do and don’t have time! Well worth a watch and I suspect the book is just as good. See the iPlayer here for Episode… Continue reading »
