Happy New Year

Without fail, the most popular posts on my blog are “bad Christmas porn” and “Michel Roux lemon tart”. This has not changed since thay have been published (over 7 years ago now).

By Philip Larkin

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
    They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
    And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
    By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
    And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
    It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
    And don’t have any kids yourself.

250g plain flour
360ml whole milk
2 large eggs
90g melted butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Sift dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Combine and mix well.
Let stand 20 minutes while you prep the waffle maker.

Mine take 8 minutes to cook.

Tried my new head razor today. Fairly pleased with the results, but for future reference, use the clippers to get rid of the bulk of it if my hair is long-ish.

There’s enough booze to kill a small horse, twice. 

Anglo-Swiss fusion: wild boar filet, braised red cabbage, and all the traditional English trimmings.

Must go digest now.

The small person was worried there, for a bit.
