From then to now … a new start …


Now it gets a little boring as nothing much happened for the next couple of years. K**h had a few jobs which included a vacuum cleaner salesperson. She answered an advertisement in the local free newspaper for a demonstrator and within five to six hours she had become a reseller. Now you may remember from … Continue reading From then to now … a new start …

From then to now … end of the dream …


After the initial ‘first night’ nerves we began to think that we were going to make something of ourselves.  Lunchtime service was working well and we were getting a slight increase in numbers.

The fears we had, with neither ever working in a hospital kitchen were soon discredited. It turned out that C***s had been the Head Cook at … Continue reading From then to now … more of the same

School days memory …


For some time now, I have been following a blog written by someone who went to the same primary school as I did. Recently it became apparent that we were in the same year group, but not the same academic stream. After completing the 1st year in class ‘1a’, I was moved down into the … Continue reading School days memory …

Weekly Prompts … Humo(u)r


In my early years as a cook, in a large hospital, I soon found that humour was to be a big part of my life. I am not tall being only 5’ 4”, and this often led to colleagues "taking the proverbial" at every conceivable occasion. At first it was a little annoying, as I … Continue reading Weekly Prompts … Humo(u)r
