Summer Berry Bircher Müsli

I was recently working in the offices of a newspaper that had a staff canteen. As well as lunch, they also served breakfast which is a great thing, when you’re running a little late in the morning and don’t have time to make any food, which, of course, never happens to me… It’s can be […]

Crumpies

It’s been a bad week for Britain. The Brexit vote brought a lot of racism and ‘idiocracy’ to the country I have lived in for most of my adult life, so much so that I think it may be time to move… Luckily I’ll always have some good memories of Britain too, many of them […]
