“to wish is to believe”
so ronnie turned 8 which was a shock to us both, how and where did 8 years go by, 8 years! and then to top it all off what was then even more of a shock to discover was that shrek, yep shrek that lovely big green ogre, well he burst onto our movie screens 15 years ago, FIFTEEN YEARS!
many many moons ago as far back as 1997, back in the olden days as ronnie might say, a book was released that literally changed the world, harry potter and the and the philosopher’s stone. at the time i was travelling into london from sunny essex and reading was a must to get through the chore of the daily commute. essentially it was a children’s book, but it attracted a wide adult readership too, and soon harry potter was a world-wide literature phenomenon.
now i’m sure i don’t have to tell you about the story but just incase you haven’t heard harry is a wizard. the books tell the journey of harry and his friends hermione granger and ron weasley, through their years as students at the hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry.
so let me get things started on the right foot, Mr HPMcQ does most of the cooking in the house, i am better at DIY he is better at cooking. his cooking surpasses my cooking on many many levels, so why fight it, let the man cook. so when we were invited by sage to spend the day trying out many of their wonderous gadgets it was best i took Mr HPMcQ along because he would know what they were talking about and in fairness he was really really excited about playing with the new pressure cooker. ‘i’ve not used a pressure cooker before’ he exclaimed with a slight squeal. i know, each to their own!
