A few nights ago I was drifting off to sleep at the pleasingly/pathetically early time of 9:15, when my phone buzzed.

His dilemma: … Continue reading In Defence of M&S Broccoli Cheese Bake (And Other Ready Meal Saviours)
I’m writing this as an impromptu response to a Guardian comment (scrolling through them is my favourite past time, it’s like watching middle class Jeremy Kyle) because I couldn’t remember my password to login and reply on the website.

Okay, Christmas is over; it’s 2018. Time to have a stretch, dust off the stale Christmas cake crumbs and Quality Street wrappers (I hate Quality Street but ’tis the season innit), break up my beloved routine of getting up late only to eat scraps of roast dinner and watch films before driving over to boy’s … Continue reading Heinz Salad Cream

The feud concerns Yorkshire puddings – a topic that, when in agreement, can bring two people together in a gravy-filled jacuzzi of union. When in disagreement, a topic that can leave a relationship in a sad, soggy mush … Continue reading On Being a Yorkshire Pudding Traditionalist (/Roast Dinner Snob)
