So, why was I away?
This was mainly due to changing to a new job. However, now that I am all settled and also have a new laptop (Yay!) blogs will resume as normal.
What have I been up to? In a nutshell (not particularly in any order)…
Open cinema (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly)
Weekend in Hull
Panic at the disco!
A few of these will be discussed in future blogs.
More recipes will follow obviously like the one below, which is a lovely ramen dish, adapted from Wagamama.
