Juice…oh how I have missed you!!

Juice in our house growing up meant one thing…Orange or Lemon SQUASH!! I guess having 6 hungry mouths to feed on a low income meant that fresh juice was a bit of a luxury and something which we enjoyed only on rare occasions like Christmas, or in hotels on holiday.

Posh nosh and Canadian charm

What is a Flexitarian?

I have this friend who absolutely loves animals. She not only has a house full of pets herself, but she frequently looks after other peoples animals, and has a habit of chasing strays to fatten them up whilst in foreign countries too.
