About to try the most expensive bacon I've ever procured - nearly £6 per pound...

this one:

Pork two ways? #wtf How about two cuts of way!

All champagne tastes of apples. This is not champagne but it is sweet Gala with an after kick of Granny Smith.

Today with the roast masala chicken. £34.99 from (if they have any left). #Nyetimber #2003

Mmmm, this is growing on me. Raspberry tea bag... on fire... on a flower pot. Hot, tannic, fruity, bit bonkers, yummy.

Intriguingly, this is available from Palmer's in Bridport (£10.99). Charming town from my early yoof (left age 5).

Tonight's experiment comes from the deep South...of France, that is.

Looks like another world class sprint in Manc. Deansgate or bust.

Cheap hotel room in London with its own balcony. Very cool! Shame it's freezing...

New drive coming along nicely...

Baby blackbird sheltering on the balcony. "aaaaahhhhhhhhs"

Isn't Sainsbury Brilliant! Duct tape, no????

Time for a new driveway...

Durham or Notre Dame?

Durham Cathedral - awesome scale

Cap'n Cook memorial... North Yorkshire

Oliver Sweeney has started doing socks. Check out these babies!

Oops. Another pair of shoes...

Getting serious heartburn from Vilmart Champagne via Virgin Wines - avoid.
