Yes, Happy Winter Solstice. The snow started on my drive to work in the dark, early hours of the morning. The winds were blowing it around like crazy causing blizzard like conditions.

Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section.

I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
