Oi! Mick Jones! Leave my pudding alone!

I was just messing about when I took that pic, but there's something about it that I really like. I made this spicy sausage pasta recipe today.  I wanted to make something new, I wanted to make it with pasta so I literally googled pasta recipes and found this one.  I know I'm a stickler for stick...

    This is the political entry I forewarned you about.  Now, there's a lot I could write about concerning the UK response to Covid-19.  A lot.  Our Government haven't exactly covered themselves in glory. But I'm going to write about what kicked off at the weekend.  It revolves round a bloke called D...

    My books arrived: Don't they look fucking awesome? My copy of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the Hunger Games prequel, arrived as well.  And, yes, I did buy myself a new book.  Or rather pre-order.  Stephen Fry has finally finished Troy, the  third in his Greek mythology trilogy.  So I order...

    Full pic: Would it surprise you to learn that I did buy those books?  And would it surprise you to further learn that I immediately went to the Waterstones website to buy The Odyssey in the clothbound classic range so I could have that and The Iliad from the same collection because I'm a sad…

    My stempunk mask arrived yesterday.  Cool, isn't it?  The ear defenders make all my masks easier to wear. I've been on a book buying binge since this all went down.  So far, I've bought Beneath the Streets (an alternate history book where Jeremy Thorpe was successful in having Norman Scott killed...

    Pic is one of the sunset that I took earlier this week while out getting food. I finally got round to getting myself a couple of face masks: The purple one is a bit small.  I've just bought myself a steampunk mask which comes with an ear protector, so hopefully that'll make a difference. I…

    I'm going to cheat and list a few things. This piece of street art, which I hope can be saved: The adrenaline high after getting fresh ink. The time I went bungee jumping: Meeting my nephews and niece for the very first time. Convincing a friend to photoshop the height thing in this photo: The&he...

    The full entry image, seeing as OD is doing the cropping thing again. I dunno.  You wait ages for one entry and then two come along at once. It's almost 8am.  I'm suddenly reminded that there is an 8am on a Sunday morning.  I woke up at 6 and could not get back to sleep. …

    Bit of excitement outside the flat today.  Looked out the window and a huge chunk of the street was cordoned off with police tape.  According to the local paper, someone was attacked with a bladed weapon at 9:30 this morning.  By the time I got back from town, the cordon was gone. Frank Turner re...
