Not So Current Affairs

David Haye Gang Rape Jibe

Sky News David Haye Story

After reading about boxer David Haye's 'Gang Rape' jibe, I'm hoping HE gets violated in the ring - pun very much intended!

Sad Story Alert!

Can't help thinking that the bambina just wanted to be with her parents  :(

Papal Visit

I did not join my fellow Britons in welcoming the Pope to the UK last week, for a start I kept reading the word Papal as PayPal which was pissing me off from the get-go and I also felt very strongly that one of the richest organisations on the planet could have funded their own security for the visit, oh and don't even get me started on the kiddie fiddling clergy, on that note this link doing the rounds on Twitter tickled me...

Not sure if you've seen the Colleen Rooney Littlewoods ad.

 'These boots were made for walking' like fuck were they! Maybe if you're referring to Wayne's, all over you.

Berry Nutty

We popped over to see my sister for a day during the summer hols, she lives in an area of Milton Keynes where the local parish council have planted lots of fruit bushes and trees for everyone in the community to harvest at will, so we immersed ourselves in some foraging and came home with blackberries, damsons and plums, unfortunately the birds had had all the gooseberries and the cob nuts weren't ready.  

My Sis and Buster foraging in Milton Keynes

We were inspired and did a bit of foraging on a recent family cycle trip to Harpenden and back, we came up trumps with a whole load of blackberries and I made a blackberry and apple crumble, is it me or does free food seems to taste so much nicer?  

I have since spotted a few sloe bushes on my way to the gym and am awaiting the first frost so that I can harvest them (according to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall waiting makes them less bitter) and make some sloe gin or vodka.  I have also ordered a Collins book on foraging and hope to do more of the same next year.  I'm currently willing my next-door neighbour's fruit trees to spread their boughs over my fence as I would love some free apples and pears too.

Sadly we said goodbye to our allotment this summer (too much to juggle with Missy coming along) but our little veg plot in the garden is still producing for us, we have been harvesting chillies like crazy and I am making my first foray into preserving by making a chilli jelly.  I have ordered some preserving paraphernalia from Lakeland and will report experimental findings on here soon.

We also have some leeks getting fatter by the day, I made a lovely leek and potato soup at the weekend, I just love Autumnal eats, speaking of which we also enjoyed a sausage, onion and honey mustard casserole and pumpkin soup last week.  You can't beat comfort fodder.

Don't worry, I haven't gone ferral!

I'm still here!

Hello!  I haven't done a Joaquin Phoenix and retired from blogging to become a rap star, just been super busy with school hols and a 10 month old daughter, but I'm back, I've shaved off the beard and have tonnes to blog about so am just gonna dive in and cane it, apologies if it's a rambling mess but I really need to catch up so will just spill my brain onto here over the coming days and hope for the best!

I'm back bitches!
