Time is flying by and here’s an update on how the last 5 days have been living without social media and with some seriously limited phone usage. It didn’t help this week as I lost the replacement phone I had – my only tech-contact with people. Oops! At least I had face to face contact still (phew).

However, all is found now, and I’m (slightly) more contactable now.

I would love to hear what you think about how much social media and access to the internet at the immediate time is enriching or spoiling your social interactions? What are your thoughts and opinions on this?

Mindless Mondays – The Baking King

It’s been a while since our last Mindless Mondays. I decided one Saturday morning to bake some Apple Danish Pastries, and was playing about with the camera so captured it! I know this didn’t happen on a Monday (therefore can it count as a ‘mindless Monday’ video?!), but you can watch it on a Monday and I’m posting it on a Monday, and so hopefully you’ll have some enjoyment from my rather mediocre baking skills.

Take me to the Bake Off!


Mindless Monday – Dogs & Baking(?!)

For this week’s Mindless Monday I thought I’d show a little window in my Mondays. Heather and I have Monday’s off, and we’ve recently been dog-sitting and learning the ropes of what it is like to look after som

Also – one of my favourite shows, the Great British Bake Off is back on UK television for a new series, and so i’ve put my apron back on and giving a swiss roll a try. Take a look at how it all went.

Just in case you’re interested, the recipe I was going with is on the BBC website here.
