BOTTOMS UP! CHOOSE YOUR OWN FIZZ THIS VALENTINE’S

6 Feb 2016

Quite often when we eat out the waiter hands the wine list to Mr MK (Muddy Kent) and he’s also the one who ends up doing the tasting. In fairness sometimes this is simply because I am otherwise occupied extracting the Mini Muddies from under the neighbouring table. But it is also the case that men have traditionally made the decisions about what we should be drinking. I must confess, I’d like to know a bit more than I do.

At that time the tourism industry was much more sharply divided into two categories – the independent travellers (backpacks and a devil-may-care attitude) or package holiday goers (itinerary sorted for you and everything pre-paid). Us independent travellers could imagine nothing worse than being told where to go and what to do (especially since that ‘what to do’ might involve dressing up for a round-the-pool theme night).

COUNTDOWN TO GETTING RIO BODY READY!

This summer the biggest sporting event on the planet, will be hosted in the land of the body beautiful – it’s enough to make you quiver in your control pants. I, for one, have made myself a promise that this year (just as soon as it warms up a teensy weensy bit) I’m going to peel off my bed socks, shuffle out there and finally get back in shape.
