Sorry Heston

I'm a big fan of Heston Blumenthal.  I'm also a big fan of gin.  So the combination of the two should be great, right?  Errr, sadly not really.  In fact, if I'm honest, it's just horrible.  I keep thinking I must have made some kind of mistake.  Surely, Heston Blumenthal knows more about how things should taste than I ever could?  In this instance though I'm forced to admit that maybe he doesn't get everything right.

Writing this I've just remembered that I also didn't like his Pine Fresh Toilet Cleaner flavoured mince pies.  Ahh well, never mind, I'll go and console myself with some snail porridge.

An Unlikely Princess

I took Phoebe to a kids party at the weekend.  The parents had laid on an entertainer and while she was trying to get the children involved she gathered them round her and asked them who their favourite princesses were.  Yes, they were all girls.  She got the usual answers I was expecting - Cinderella, Rapunzel until she came to the birthday girl herself.  When she was asked, she just pointed and said "Phoebe!"

I'm glad to say Princess Phoebe didn't let it go to her head.
