Lyke Wake Walk Take Two

After postponing our attempt at the Lyke Wake Walk earlier in the summer, Jenni and I – and now also Allysse who has joined the team – are on our way up to the North Yorkshire Moors to give this thing another go. This weekend we will tackle that 40 mile linear route from Osmotherly to

Review: Percy Pig Celebration Cake

The Percy Pig brand gets bigger and bigger all the time. Not only are M&S stores full of Percy Pig Easter Eggs (I’m really hoping for one on Sunday!), but you can get desserts, yoghurts, fairy cake mixes (which I reviewed previously), and now a rather stunning looking celebration cake. Celebration cakes are normally reserved

Review: iPhone 5 Dock from Mobile Fun

Year in Photos (14 May 11)

We went to the BMF bike show in Peterborough today – a good day despite the wind howling in all directions. This sign made me wonder… 14/05/11: Fun for all the family?!

Pointless Apps – Lego Photo

As you are all completely aware, I really love my iPhone (I’m hoping that the new 4G or whatever they’re gonna call it will be out around the same time that my contract needs renewing!).  I also love Apps and how they make my life easier and sometimes more interesting.  However some Apps are totally
