Love it or Hate it

Some foodstuffs make our stomachs turn,
the mere thought of them causes concern,
simply their taste, texture or smell,
can result in us feeling quite unwell.

The bitter taste of celery,
 cause some to pull a face,
whilst others love the crispy crunch,
and the need to chew at pace,

The wobble of blancmange bright pink
can cheer or induce the spirits to sink,
whilst liver and bacon on your plate,
can make you smile or seal your fate!

Yet the real 'love it, hate it' food,
that divides the nation's mood,
is the yeasty spread Marmite,
Who's right?
There's only one way to find out - FIGHT!

Biscuits: Marmite Breakfast Biscuits

Farewell Katie

Katie Clements has gone
to do a Masters Degree,
we hope she's be really happy
in Bristol City.

We'll miss her carrot onsie
amazing hats and arty ways,
forgetting her phone, scratching the Nissan
and brightening up our days.

No longer will we watch her
spilling food down her front,
or correcting a certain someone
for being rather blunt.

With her awkward left handed knitting
and crossword decrypting,
we'll miss her greatly
Good luck Katie!

Biscuits: Viennese sandwich fingers
Tasting Notes: Sweet and crunchy!

The usual please
Mine's a pint
Down the hatch
Bottom's up
Terms we use
when we like to sup

Be it at the Royal Oak
The Red Lion
Turfcutter's Arms
or the Woodman
all forest pubs
we like to drink in

A ploughman's lunch
an early brunch
a packet of peanuts
or pork scratchings
full of crunch
pub favourites
we like to munch

Rustic charm
a game of darts
old fusty books
oak beams
pickled eggs in a jar on the bar
log fires and skittle alleys
cattle grids and no kids
the perfect pub......

Biscuits: Extremely chocolatey dark chocolate ginger biscuits
Tasting Notes: chocolatey!

Tangawizi the Tom cat
is missing again
his name is Swahili for ginger
the colour of his fur
purr purr

Perhaps he was feline lonely
and set off to Kenya
where it feels more homely
purr purr

Maybe he slunk through
pussport control at Heathrow T4
and me a fellow ginge, Ed Sheeran
who shook him by the paw
purr purr

Prince Harry, Damian Lewis & Geri Halliwell
could be his cabin crew on Ginger 'Air
serving Ginger Beer and Ginger Nuts
to all those with reddish hair
purr purr

We really hope Tangawizi
will fly back home soon
his ginger 'air miles quota will be through the roof
ready for his next holiday to sunny Magaluf
purr purr
