Monday 6 Feb 2017
The Man Bird and I went to experience the Chefs Kitchen Table at The Cavendish Hotel, Baslow at the kind invitation of Head Chef, Alan Hill, in July 2016.

Huntley Green in Cromford Closes Its Doors
Monday 6 Feb 2017
Its always sad to see great places to eat close their doors and I was gutted to see the announcement on the Facebook page of Huntley Green in Cromford just a few days ago announcing their closure.
I'd only been the once but enjoyed my breakfast so much it was included in my roundup of 2016 so I'd just like to take this opportunity to wish the owners good luck in whatever ........... read more
The First Brew from Northern Tea Merchants @TeaMerchant
Saturday 4 Feb 2017
Well dear reader I have been a very busy little birdie this morning; done the food shop, cleaned our chickens out, done the ironing and emptied the dish washer.

Have you tried Bahlsen's Pick up! Mini's Yet
Wednesday 18 Jan 2017
Well January, you stood absolutely no chance of either being “dry” or “diet”, in no small part due to me having my birthday in you. I have been a good little bird and been going to the gym regularly which, given the delicious Pick up! Mini biscuits that were sent to us is perhaps a good thing.
