Movie Stars for a Day

Well, video stars at any rate. Last Friday Marianna and I went along to film a few seconds for the Cwmbran's Urban Buzz video campaign. If we get the most votes the project will be given £120,000 of funding for planting, art, and to transform the bane of my life - the local underpass. If you're local, please vote. (pretty please?)

It's free to vote online and by phone on 0808 228 7201.

You can see us at 0:46 and 2:07 - David and I were painfully embarrassed; Brian pointed out that he has a teenage son so it doesn't really matter what he does, it will still be uncool. Marianna just took it all in her stride.

Fabric samples are a great way to avoid costly mistakes, as well as providing a fab source of material for your crafts box.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
