A Great Day Out: At Manchester Airport?

True to my word I promised Samia we would be flying off to a foreign country in December to break up the winter. The problem is we are the only ones flying north to Edinburgh! The weather there has been even worse than Wales, and the airport was closed for a few […]

Christmas Recipe 3: Delicious Lemony Sprouts & Parsnip & Potato Mash

Final part  for the Christmas Veggie Recipes for this year. The sprout dish is really a miracle because even lukewarm and soggy sprouts taste great with this recipe. The saffron potato and parsnip mash is good too because the saffron makes it sound posh enough for Christmas, it’s […]

What really happened at this year’s Yoga Show

Went to the yoga show this weekend, which was great. Somehow though I have conditioned myself to go to these shows really hungry. I think it’s from my time working at Dimensions the Dru health food store. Then we used to go to lots of organic food fairs, […]
