REVIEW: James Wong – How To Eat Better

Whilst browsing for healthy eating books on Amazon, I came across James Wong – How To Eat Better – How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood and after reading the reviews, I decided to buy it.

I’m quite a fussy eater and do not like a lot of the foods that are meant to be good for you which means most recipe books are useless, so I was looking for a book that told me which foods I should be eating and how best to eat them.  This book does that.

REVIEW: Fast & Furious 8

I went to see Fast & Furious 8 (also known as “The Fate of the Furious”) on Friday and thought I would write a quick review for you.

Fast & Furious 8 is the eighth movie (see what I did there) in the Fast and The Furious franchise and follows Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) as he settles down to married life with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), until they are rudely interrupted by Cipher (Charlize Theron) who blackmails Dom into helping her and turns him against his team.

My Desert Island Discs

I’ve been listening to a lot of old episodes of Desert Island Discs recently after stumbling across and enjoying Bob Harris’ episode from February 2014.

For those of you that don’t know, Desert Island Discs is a BBC Radio 4 programme in which a guest is invited by the presenter to choose the eight recordings (I think originally they were gramophone records) they would take with them to a desert island.  The first episode was recorded by the creator Roy Plomley in 1942.  Michael Parkinson took over in 1985 and Sue Lawley presented for 18 years from 1988.   Kirsty Young is the current presenter.

Wrest Park in pictures

If you’ve seen my post “Wrest Park – My Favourite Place” you’ll know how much I love visiting Wrest, so I thought I’d share with you some of the other photographs I have taken there.  If you haven’t read the post, or you want to refresh your memory it is here.
