Multipod Issues: What is a multipod, anyway?

Making authentic Cornish pasties

In Cornwall, and everything! When I went to visit my Dad's family recently, to spend time with them and to scatter some of Dad's ashes on his mum's grave, we realised that I'd missed a chunk of my heritage - I have never learned to make Cornish pasties! So...

One day to go…

Well, technically three, because my next day at the day job (which is also my last) is in fact on Tuesday. But OMFG I can't believe how fast it's come round! After years of extolling the virtues of a month's notice rather than three, I ended up giving ten weeks'...
