New About Me

Feeling so good I think it’s time for a new About Me page! So… I had a hideously tough year in 2018.

Cooking for real

In the past I’ve really grudged time spent in the kitchen. I don’t like preparing food to cook, I don’t particularly enjoy cooking it, and if I only have to wash up two dishes afterwards that’s a win. I mostly ate things like avocado toast, stir-fries, salads, anything healthy but no muss no fuss. Well, […]
