Don’t believe them …


I used to be a cook. From 1971 to 1986 I was a cook at the Leeds General Infirmary. In fact from 1983 to 1986, I was the Head Cook in the staff kitchen. All this is a little bit of background information for what I want to have a chat about. That chat is … Continue reading Don’t believe them …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symbol


I thought I would have a go at this. I'm not sure if it will work (fingers crossed I've got it right.) I have been a fan of old British films for a long time now, and the first one I remember watching and enjoying was Brief Encounter.
