Hoooo! You find me on an Easter Sunday afternoon sitting at a pub table, with an empty bottle of J20 and a pint of bitter. The FA Cup Semi Final is on the TV (currently 0-0), and, having just eaten two shawarma wraps in the space of an hour, I’m beginning to question my life […]
Hello! I am on a train. As I look out of the window, I see a golf course, somewhere outside Barrhead, and I briefly wonder if I’ve picked the wrong hobby. I shouldn’t be on a train to the English/Scottish border, where I will have approximately three hours with which to check out the town, […]
Hello! A quick review today, by way of a request/tip-off – Doner Kebab Pringles are a thing. Well, I say Pringles – these were released to coincide with Euro 2020, which itself ended up arriving a year late, so here I am eating them and it’s nearly September. Pringoools! Geddit? It’s a joke.

The Dominos Beef Doner Kebab Pizza – reviewed!

How did I get here? Read on… I wish there was an interesting story behind how these ended up in my shopping basket. I wish I […]
Hello everybody! So, here we are. Today is day something of lockdown. No-one knows. Time has ceased to have any meaning whatsoever. Before, we had such concepts as “Tuesday”, “next week”, and “months”. Now, all we have is “in a bit”, “eons”, and “bloody hell, was that *yesterday*???”. As a unintended consequence of being confined […]
Hello once again. I hope you’re well. Sorry for the lack of updates of late. Fact is, and I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this, but I’ve been stuck down a well. I won’t go into the details, needless to say it involved an old man who had convinced me that he was a wizard and […]
