Bits & Bobs

Many times I have come across things I want to pass on, and I have not had the correct places to put it on my website because the the content did not fit in my day and everyday, my blog, my recipes etc. So this will be the best place for those things , they are bits and pieces, a dumping ground for all sorts, good places for a coffee, good parks, good walks, good pubs, good fish and chips, good shopping centres etc.

I hope to make this an interesting section, a bit like a car booty. Lots of cast offs that other people want.
