Welcome to My flabulous blog.
I’m a forty something yr old foodie who hit 40 and had a mid life crisis. Thats me in the picture above, on the left looking suitably pickled a few New Years Eve’s ago. The wonderful guy with me in the naff hat (which we found on the bus and took turns wearing!!) is my better half/soulmate/Bane of my life/saviour (delete depending on the weather) the wonderful Dazzler. Together we gave it all up to open an ice cream business and live in Brighton with our three mad dogs and Lulu, our ice cream van.
Two years later and whilst the Dazzler carried on with Lulu I’ve been given the chance to have a fab change in direction and am now ‘Head of Operations’ for a digital marketing agency!!
I’ve had lots of careers in my life, from doorman, to HR Manager, to children’s party host for McDonalds but I have to say setting up our own street food style ice cream business out of a vintage ice cream van has been one of the most challenging, so far!!
I’m constantly trying to keep fit, mostly unsuccessfully. I have weight related diabetes and hoards of other conditions which I’m hoping to tackle by getting fitter. saying that, this blog isn’t about weight loss, I’ve given up dieting is they never work!!
About My Flabulous Blog
I started this blog really as a place to document recipes so I always had a place to find them. In addition I often blog about things that are important to me – whether thats politics, food, being gay and of a certain age, my house, the universe and everything.
Ive tried to get organised so you will find food classified as either sweet or savoury (although breakfast gets a bit blurred there) and then I’ve grouped things into courses or food types. Ive also got a section with my personal reviews of places I’ve eaten and theres a lifestyle section which covers everything else.
At the bottom of the page you can find links to my twitter and instagram accounts – where I post photos i love and share recipes and silliness.
I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I do – please feel free to comment or ask questions – always happy to help.
Have a Flabulous day xx
