Like me, you may one day be filled with the need to access Hong Kong TV channels via the Internet, and figure that buying a TVPad 4 is the best way to go about it. But then when you hook it up to the Internet and your TV, you’ll see … this … and wonder […]

Today sees the first beginnings of spring here – when the sun is just about strong enough to actually entice people out into the world, and into the back garden. Enticing our four-year-old Weapon, is another matter, especially when he has been fully…

Good food, FANTASTIC selection of beers, nice and relaxed pub. A tad expensive but then we still managed to get a meal for four for £90

A lovely little friendly cafe just off Ravenscourt Park. Does nice coffee, a ridiculously huge breakfast wrap and it's friendly to little kids, toddlers and hungover adults alike!
