When you speak about personal fitness to people, usually, … Continue reading The Netflix of Fitness
As a British person, I've never understood why Americans call, what are essentially dumplings, 'biscuits'. When I went to New York in 2012, I constantly saw 'biscuits' as a side order on restaurant menus. I never ordered them because I couldn't understand why anyone would want a Rich Tea or Bourbon with their restaurant meal. … Continue reading Tea & Biscuits
Having grown up in Suffolk, my sister and I were lucky enough to have had a fantastic outdoorsy childhood. From visiting Eastern Farmpark, to Stickleback fishing down the Broads and walks around the Nacton Lairs...our mum took us everywhere along with our next door neighbour and her two boys. I always said that if I … Continue reading Old McJimmy Had a Farm
