How marvellous!

Er, my diary says it's still 2009 ...

Yes, very proud indeed Maggie.

2009 DogLover? I don't get it! Did The Times Online make a mistake?

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the video and seeing Vinnie. I am so impressed. You've always said he was a great chef, but you know how grandmothers like to brag. Now you really have that right. Flagmaker

1. You must be very proud.
2. I thought, at first glance, it said 'Naan brag'- I had once made some quite nice naan breads, so you see where I was, in my head?
3. my mate has just won a TEFL course in Italy, plus a blog-writing job for The Guardian. Life is good!

Oh, well done, Vinnie!! He looks as if he really enjoys his work, which is nice, and he's also a sweetie!

You must be proud indeed!

He has overcome some huge hurdles to get where he is today RNSANE. He is a true hero. And so good to his nan!

Retiredandcrazy said...

Good cook is putting it mildly flagmaker, he is a truly outstanding cook.

Retiredandcrazy said...

I'm not surprised your mate has achieved so much Sarah. You move in illustrious circles! Wish her all the very best from me and a mention in your Guardian blog would be good too!!!

Retiredandcrazy said...

He surely did Wayne.

Retiredandcrazy said...

The video doesn't do him him justice Jay. I think that if you met him you would drop Jonny Depp like a hot brick!

Just catching up with missed posts on my return. So sorry to read you have been having a tough time with OG in hospital and coming up against brick walls. Do hope he improves soon. It must be so worrying for you. Hugs X

Retiredandcrazy said...

Good to have you back again Rosiero. To my shame I have still done nothing about your kind Kreative Writing Award. I will when I have time, I promise.
