I love December. It is a month full to the brim of my favourite things. It all kicks off with my birthday at the beginning of the month which is a day I refuse to stop celebrating. I AM fabulous and therefore have absolutely no issue with celebrating this fact twice over. Once on my… Read More Christmas cruising..
So what does it feel like be hungry? I genuinely can’t remember. December has been a month of excessive feasting and imbibing for me. So much so I decided to really commit to the celebrations and forsake my usual workout routine for the whole month. And my pathetic attempt at healthy eating. As a result… Read More Happy new year from MBO!
The smell of oranges (in all its guises) is guaranteed to awaken a swirling mass of memories within me….. which is ironic because my feelings towards actually eating them are decidedly ambivalent.

How did I get from my sunny little island to the cold, grey, rainy town of St Andrews over 4000 miles away? My first few months at boarding school has… Read More Blueberries with my BFF

And today, I really, really needed a chocolate fix. Was this due to the civilized meal with friends that turned into a… Read More Confessions of a chocoholic…
Why Drum N Bass? Because this afternoons bake-a-thon is sponsored by my good friend Richie’s superlative new album. Don’t believe me? Get over to itunes and download Captain Slackship’s Mezzanine Allstars right now . Best 7.50 you will ever spend. I dare you not to groove around…. Why a cake?
