A Letter to the Younger Me – Part Two

Who knows what lies in the mind of a child? Dreams and hopes, fears and sorrows. A child who seeks from those whose love and care is craved, just a smile, a word of approval, a touch of a hand, carried on a shoulder big and strong; lifted up and tossed into the air, then safely caught in strong hands…….

Tables for Two

Welcome to our brand new series featuring recipes suited for two in comfy – even romantic settings.

Those of us, who are blessed to have a life partner, should cherish that relationship and actively set about nurturing it, especially if you’re partnership is some years on.

Too many folk, who are down the line in their marriages, find themselves in a dull rut.

Getting out of this rut can be done in a simple, inexpensive and fun way

Relationship nurturing meals must meet three requirements.

  • Adventure in preparing a different-from-the-usual meal in the kitchen TOGETHER.
  • Adventure in preparing inexpensive simple, different-from-the-usual-meal, table settings.
  • Adventure in having a completely different-from-the-usual attitude to your partner and your meal.
  • As a cherry-on-the-top, some different-from-the-usual wine, of a taste that you would both enjoy.
  • Soft background music is optional.

Take our idea and make it your own. It will improve your marriage, lifestyle and as a big plus – your health as well!

Our ethos is to offer simple, home-style recipes, for two people, that are very inexpensive to prepare and ……… so delicious to eat.

Flying Umbrellas & Evil Birds – Cairo, Egypt

Man who seek adventure, find it, sometimes with birds turds.

After having some breakfast, I requested an Uber & made my way to the church. I was staying at a hostel in Giza so it was a long drive. A very long drive. The Uber driver was very friendly & as we got near the church, he expressed concern for my safety. This is how the conversation went:
