The Drinks Report: Cocktails

The Drinks Report: Cocktails

The last week seems to have been very cocktail themed for me – a quick sunny Bramble on Wednesday, giving my favourite recipe recommendations for birthday parties, Pimms Cups and unexpected gin on Thursday and then roof garden Pimms on Friday. That’s without even mentioning all of the wedding Pimms! I wanted to share some of …

The Food Report: Glastonbury

The Food Report: Glastonbury

One of my favourite things about festivals is the food. Whilst others are frantically running between bands what I really want to do is investigate whether my favourite noodle place is on site, and where I can get a pie from. As Glastonbury crew, we were well looked after with two meals a day. A …

The Weekly Report

Watching Old Friends episodes and the end of The Good Wife fifth season. Listening to Arcade Fire and The Black Keys, on repeat, all day, every day. I wrote the same thing last week, and it’s still true. Of course I was also listening to our amazing friends playing at a beautiful wedding. Reading The papers and How to Deliver a TED Talk. …

Watching I’m coming towards the end of The Good Wife, a lot of Friends – I’ve seen hardly any of the early episodes so I’m really enjoying them, and just a little Sabrina. I’m also not ashamed to admit I’ve re-watched the Arcade Fire set from Glastonbury too. Listening to Arcade Fire and The Black Keys, on repeat, all day, every day. Reading The …

Independents Day

Independents Day

Yesterday was Independents Day (yes, that’s not a typo, I know it was Independence Day too)! With this in mind, I thought I would share some of my favourite independent shops in both Liverpool and Stroud, my two very special home towns. Liverpool Mattas – I’ve mentioned Mattas on numerous occasions because it’s one of my favourite …

The Weekly Report: Glastonbury

I was at Glastonbury last week so this week’s report is a little more packed than usual… We headed down on Tuesday to get ourselves set up and help out with the auditing for the Green Trader Awards. I cannot recommend working festivals enough – we had a super fun time talking to hundreds of friendly …

The Food Report: Lunch Ideas

The Food Report: Lunch Ideas

Summer is here and I’ve got that feeling from school days of being allowed onto the field at lunchtime. With summer comes a whole new lunch agenda. Winter for me is soup almost every day, or leftovers from big bowls of stew. In summer, though, I need something fresh and light for my lunch, and it …

The Weekly Report

Watching Really not very much. A little of The Good Wife and Game of Thrones (oh my gosh) but mostly I’ve been frolicking outside. Listening to A lot of Britney, a lot of the Heebies playlist to get us through a big move at work and plenty of 50s tunes to prepare for a very 50s wedding.  Reading I lost my …

Watching The Good Wife, it’s excellent! I also went to see the What We Did Next production of Carousel at The Unity on Wednesday. It was fantastic, conjuring up a perfect atmosphere and I’ve had the songs in my head all week. Listening to The Frozen soundtrack, all of the time, a whole lot of Brit Pop and The Archers, of course. Reading Nothing at …
