Another Sad Loss - AA Gill
Saturday 10 Dec 2016

Today has seen the passing of yet another legend in what is turning out to be the year of celebrity and legendary deaths; I shan’t be sad to see the end of 2016 in that respect.

Christmas At Chatsworth House @ChatsworthHouse
Thursday 8 Dec 2016

I did mention on my last Chatterbox that it had been a rather busy week, but didn’t enlighten you all on my Chatsworth House adventure. Every year, for the Festive season, The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and their wonderful staff, decorate the magnificent Chatsworth House in a particular theme; last year it was based around Toad of Toad Hall from Wind in The Willows and this year, 2016 ...........  read more

Who Else Was At The Marketing Derby Food & Drink Awards @RestedCocktails @EngineShedDerby @The_Quirky_Cook @JohnCowings
Sunday 16 Oct 2016

As the name of the blog suggests, I am a rather nosey little birdie who loves asking questions and finding out about things. The Marketing Derby Food and Drink awards 2016 had some fantastic stalls to browse before the award ceremony itself, so I decided to go and investigate.

Now we all know what cocktails are, but I really had no clue as to what a rested cocktail was all about, ...........  read more

Mummy Bird harvests the apples from her tree and makes an amazing apple and Rhubarb (given to her by a neighbour) crumble to round off Sunday lunch at The Tribal Elders nest and My Nana, bless her, used t ...........  read more
