Come together

It’s time to bring together the various blogs and online entities I have scattered around the web.

I won’t bore you with the reasons why, and why the blogs were created as separate entities anyway. I just wanted to let you know, partly because it may take a few days or weeks to sort out the design. Not that you care if you read this by RSS anyway.

King prawn fried rice

Today was another leftovers day. Rice unused from yesterday was put in the wok, along with some egg, spring onions and king prawns, seasoned with sesame oil and soy sauce, to make fried rice.

Lunch was just a carton of pea and ham soup.

Little star, so you had to go.
You must have wanted him to know.
You must have wanted the world to know.
Poor little thing.
Now they know.

Full English breakfast – 12th January 2010


Today I was in Maidenhead for the day. Since that involves a trip round a not very nice part of the M25, I tend to make the trip very early to avoid the traffic, and end up in Maidenhead around 7.30am, by which time I’m hank marvin. Today I decided to treat myself to a full English breakfast at Dave’s Place cafe, round the corner from the office.   It’s a proper greasy spoon, which I love, so naturally I read a tabloid while eating my breakfast.  (That’s yesterday’s Daily Star you can see above the plate.)

I don’t, and couldn’t, eat this every week but since I’d been pretty good with food since the beginning of the year, I thought I’d earned enough brownie points for this.

I kind of made up for it at lunchtime, by buying a big bottle of apple and mango juice instead of buying a big bag of crisps to accompany my main lunch of crab pate with bread rolls.

Dinner consisted of some leftover Parsi lamb dhansak from the other day.
