MY DATE WITH @puddingface …

Ok, it’s the little things in life that make me happy (you should know that by now…) and that includes my daily twitter fix with my new ‘friends’ – @puddingface, @porridgelady, @sueperkins, @jamandcream, @rivercottage, @Happy_Appetite, @ginandcrumpets, @meemalee to name but a few.  All of my twitter ‘friends’ have one thing in common with me….FOOD.  Surprised?! Don’t be…

For those of you who haven’t ventured into twitterdom then it’s never too late.  You can follow people who have a) never been your friends; b) are never likely to be your friends; c) may befriend you (WOOHOO) if they find you ‘interesting’; and best of all d) you won’t ever want to ‘unfriend’ them in the way you want to unfriend people on facebook who you haven’t seen since you were 13 and have no inclination of ever meeting up with them ever again because what have you got in common with them now you are in your 40’s?!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO MY BLOG!!!

Well, I couldn’t let this momentous day pass without an anniversary post to my blog. A year ago today the fun started in my lovely new kitchen at ‘the hillside’ in Edinburgh…and four thousand and ninety five hits later (yay!!!!!) I’m still eating, baking, concocting, shooting (photos….) and living a foodie dream with the lovely Mr Predictable.

As yet I am still doing the day job (hrmph), fame still awaits me, but mymonkfish blog has given me the chance to garble on about what I do and like best – FOOD!

Mrs Monkfish senior is not shy in complaining that my blog is not updated enough, ‘I know’ is my usual response and ‘there’s not enough hours in the day’ blah blah blah, tis true! Inbetween diy, number crunching and pottering around with Mr Predictable I try my best! Twitter has provided me with short sharp bursts of foodie related wafflings so please follow me at ‘hilsters’.

In the meantime I’ll stop garbling and sign off as in a few hours time I’m boarding the 8am eurostar at St Pancras and am off to paree with Mr P. Living the dream as per bl**dy usual, life’s tough eh?! Happy birthday to me and my blog x

PS….as a nod to myself I ate monkfish last night in a Thai green curry. YUM!
