Secrets from the Kitchen: Angela’s Rhubarb & Ginger Jam

Secrets from the Kitchen: Angela’s Rhubarb & Ginger Jam

Certain age-old recipes are just too good to keep a secret – you know the ones – the mince pies at Christmas you can’t leave alone (Mrs Dent’s are legendary in Frome), the jars of piccalilli (by Terry from the pub), without which a cold meat salad just wouldn’t be the same and – my...

Decorating the Dream Flat

Decorating the Dream Flat

Searching for a dream flat in the city shouldn’t be this difficult. All I desire is a pretty one bedroom apartment complete with balcony or a little outdoor space for post-work mojitos.

LOST IN PIXELS: FINDING YOUR DREAM CAMERA

LOST IN PIXELS: FINDING YOUR DREAM CAMERA

Buying a camera is an investment – it’s not a flip decision made at lunchtime in between choosing a sandwich, a birthday card or even a pair of shoes. It takes time, money and (worse still) technical know-how, in order to  get the right one. 3 things that many of us don’t have. Thankfully for...

How to get the perfect tourist snap (in time for the Royal Wedding)

Royal Wedding fever

Royal Wedding fever

I told myself  that I wouldn’t get caught up in all the Royal Wedding hullabaloo… and yet here I am thinking about how I’m going to spend the day… do I go to Hyde Park, or hold a street party? What will Kate wear? Will she get to have flowers in her hair or will she...
