Out of respect

Until further notice, out of respect for the late queen, Jen and I will not be listening to any Phil Collins albums.

However, to mark Her Majesty’s long life, and years of dedicated service to the nation, this evening we cooked haddock and leek fishcakes.

Haddock & leek fishcakes

Thank you, ma’am.

Million-pound idea

I think I might finally have come up with a million-pound idea. Jen’s not so sure, but what the hell would she know? I’m putting it out here so nobody can come along later and patent the damn thing…

Bacon-scented perfume!

Is this a sure-fire winner, or what? The whole point of perfume is to smell nice. Everyone in their right mind loves the smell of bacon. Slap on a label with a suspiciously French-looking name with a bunch of unnecessary punctuation marks… Eau de porc. Maison du l’ard. Baçôn de Paris. Bob’s your uncle.

Think I’ll order the Aston Martin right now.


Ring pull

Yesterday was Jen’s and my 30th anniversary as a couple. To mark the occasion, we popped down the local Register Office to sign up for one of those newfangled civil partnership thingies.

Matching rings

…And they say I don’t know how to play the long game!
