I’m not one for food reviews, despite being a frequenter of many a fine dining establishment (Read: I like Nandos a lot). However, after spending our first dinner date out after lock-down at Gourmet Food Kitchen, I just had to write a full review. If you’re not a foodie, then in short, it was incredible. If you are, then read on…
I decided to try 30 new foods I’d never had before, in the hope of broadening my culinary experience before I turned 30. I did it but never posted this, and it was one of the few goals I managed to complete… Probably because it involved food. I hope this helps you on your journey around the foods of the world!
You probably won’t want to try the last one though…
Some of my favourite geeky small businesses are still shipping throughout the lock-down! Here are just a few of the nerdier small businesses I know and love, who can keep us stocked up on nerdy goodness throughout the coming weeks.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is one of my favourite books, so when I was invited to the Belgrade Theatre to watch an on stage adaptation, I practically snatched their hands off! Never mind the pressure of performing in front of hundreds of other people every night, I don’t think the crew realised what pressure they were under having to impress me. The standards were going to have to be very high indeed…
In his daily life, Dominic Russell is a Neanderthal. A Viking Warrior. A Roman Centurion. He runs history workshops for children in one-off “Wow” days. His mission is to engage children (and adults) with history. He’s brimming with ideas, consistently drawing from his vast knowledge of local history and applying it to his everyday experiences, he has a unique perspective of what Coventry was, what it is and what it could be.
WOW. What a year… I know things have turned a bit rubbish recently but you know, I’ve had a fantastic year! I’ve enjoyed about 90% of it which I’d say is pretty fantastic. This post is mostly here as I just wanted to write down all I’ve done this year and reflect on how many things have progressed. So often I feel like I’m going nowhere fast so…. time to prove myself wrong!
Adult life is so hard, huh? Often when you want to reconnect with your friends, you compare calendars and there’s that all too familiar scenario… “How does the 5th sound?” “I’m out that day what about the 7th?” “Oh, I can’t do that… 9th?” “Busy then… Erm…”
That’s why when the fantastic team over at giffgaff gifted me a games night kit and challenged me to host a games night, I thought it’d be a fantastic way to reconnect my friends as a group. We’d not spent any time together for so long and it seemed like the perfect excuse!

I planned to write a ton of Halloween themed posts this October, but I’ve been so busy making those Halloween plans that I’ve not managed to write a single one! Instead, I thought I’d share the ways I’ve been getting into the spirit of Halloween and managed to make it last all throughout October.

Has anyone been to Wagamama since the new vegan menu launch? I had the fantastic opportunity of checking out their new menu with a fab bunch of locals – and this is what I found out! I even solved the mystery of the vegan egg!

I recently started a local community in my area, and was asked by a fellow geek – how do I start one in my area? Coventry Geeks is all about local people connecting through their mutual love of fandoms, nerdiness and geek culture. With the success of how it’s gone so far, I wanted to share just how you can make a community for yourselves!
