Welcome to Me 2015 Christmas Blog Tag


  1. I saw this one as well! Satsumas are a popular choice!

    1. I'm so addicted to these things! (And they're definitely the best!) :D

  2. This is cool! Always good to find out more about the person behind the blog. I'm allergic to oranges and satsumas so neither.

    1. I love doing these things - they're kind of addictive!

  3. I pick my fingers constantly too. I didn't know that it could be related to my OCD. I'm surprised my doctors never picked up on it. Thanks for the link to your blog post on it, it's very helpful!

    1. I'm glad it could help! I didn't know it had a name or anything until about two years ago - I actually saw a competition for a little bundle of things to help deal with different types of picking, like stress reliever / distraction type things. Sadly they didn't work for me but it was great to find some more information about it.

  4. I love these posts. I'm one of those weird people that is totally repulsed by all fresh fruit so oranges and satsumas would both be more likely to appear as a biggest fear. Behind spiders though. Creepy little 8 legged beasts!

    Lovely to find out more about you.

    1. Ugh, no, and fruit is everywhere too. At least spiders are hidden most of the time (waiting, planning, plotting...) :)

  5. Aw thanks for the mention lovely and it's great to learn more about you! #anythinggoes xx

  6. This is a great challenge. I loveposts like this, because im a nosey moo. Cwmbran is not a million miles away from me, although im in England. I love emeralds too.

    1. Hehe, me too! I love peeking into other people's lives - probably why I'm such a big fan of the blogosphere in general! :) Cwmbran is great, I do feel like I haven't left it for years though. The furthest I manage is Newport these days. x

  7. These are such a fun idea to find out more about someone. PS. My biggest fear is spiders too. *shudders* Thanks for linking up to Marvellous Mondays. Kaye xo

    1. They're so hideous! My OH just laughs at me but he doesn't understand. :(

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself... Breakfast  The be

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
