Anita’s Update: October 2013

I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night and still have begged for more ! I Like it, I like it! These are a few of my favourite things – I’m sure you’ve all got songs that you remember your parents playing and you just find your self singing along – […]

Daisy chains & the simple life

Do you remember sitting in the grass making daisy chains? This came back to me when we had the chalkboards done on that spring day that we had (before the snow descended again). How simple life was when that was all you’d got to worry about was whether you’d made it long enough to fit […]

March 2011 Update…

Hello there, yes I like a Martini though not usually shaken, though wouldn’t it be lovely to be a James Bond bird – not much chance of that now I can hear you chuckle! I was reading through the blurb I wrote this time last year and it was snow, the budget, Vat and petrol […]

April 2010 update…

Hello there, The Budget is on us again, price increases, vat up, petrol up, – well no surprise there then, rail & airlines strike for Easter and Snow. Snow! – and I thought we’d seen the last of it before we decided to put our Summer Menu out. Maybe we should buck the trend and […]

October 2009 update…

Hello there, well I’m at that stage in life that I remember my Mum going through – you know the one when you have to sit nearer and nearer the window in order to see the paper and small print. So I finally relented and went for the dreaded eye test. In fact Kevin and […]

May 2009 update…

Hello there, since I last spoke to you there really have been some highs and lows, sad times and good times with lots in between. My Dad who many of you knew has now gone to join my Mum and though I know they’ll be happy together once more – I really miss him and […]

November 2008 update…

Hello there,  21 years on and Ross & I revisited Tenerife – for those of you in the know this was where we were introduced to La Bombas at the top of Mount Teide – Couldn’t get him to brave the cable car this time though  – must be losing my touch, c’est la vie! […]

March 2008 update…

Hello there, it’s Easter Saturday as I’m writing this in advance for a change and it’s been snowing with more forecast for tonight. Well we’ll see, as the Hurricane certainly never arrived thank goodness! Had a great meal with an old friend last night caught up on all the news put the world to rights […]

November 2007 update…

Hello there, remember, remember the 5th of November, bonfire night the stars are bright two little angels dressed in white or at least it went something like that which caused great hilarity when I was singing it to my friends and no I won’t do a rendition now! Well that was yesterday and I really […]

May 2007 update…

Hello there, yes it’s me again and I know from what you tell me that you love reading this so read on and I hope you’ll be entertained! Summer was here when we put this menu together with some lovely salads for you, just hoping it will return now and that the glorious few days […]
