Binky’s Cake House …… what a great find, and even nicer cakes

So there i was earlier in the year looking for a Unique  thing to get ” Mrs oldmanleslie” for her Birthday.  we have been together a little while now  so  sometimes its hard to come up with a special idea. This year , it was easy, I was told about “Binky’s Cake House “ by a friend of Mine .

I was told they made special Birthday cakes and cakes for special occasions. so i had a chat with ” binky “( not her real name ), told the lady  what i wanted and pretty much left her to it . The result was a truly scrumptious cake that tasted gorgeous, made to my wife’s choice , and that looked even better, The picture doesn’t do it Justice, it was ” proper 3D ”

Now I know there are a lot of mums out there that make cakes for people , and im not saying  anything about their standards, all i can say is that the cake i paid for from Binkys was excellent value and for sheer delight for the look on my wife’s face it was worth every penny

Binkys are also a bit special as they can accommodate  Most dietary requirements, They Are a start-up business and they are so keen to do a good job. for you  

They have a www presence, and aren’t Just on Face Book and you can see some of their handy work here  This is NOT a sponsored  blog, i paid for the Cake and am so glad i found them, If its something that little bit special you need , Binkys is the way

Celia – Gluten free Beer V Carling Zest

So there was I, enjoying a pleasant night  with good company, in the run up to Christmas. Generally in good spirits,having had good food, and sitting down to watch another ” typical ” Christmas film. All the component parts of a nice night

Then I was given a bottle of Celia  Beer to drink,Celia Lager I have to say  that being a man of some years, i have had a few beers in my time,  i like the mainstream lagers. however this beer, In my opinion was Awful. It tasted almost as if it hadnt been brewed out properly.

I get the idea that  with Gluten free products  there may be a difference in taste slightly. This  beer was just  Not nice,

Im sure there are alternates available.

My host even told me to finish it before i could move onto the Carling Zest ( with wild berries )

Now me  & my mate have had daft ideas  and many challenges  of many kinds, eating drinking  & other things over the years, its one of the things that we just seem to do , I wouldn’t change that…

However from experience tonight, i can confirm that in the context of spending time with friends, and relaxing , Carling Zest beer is Significantly Nicer than Celia  Czech beer
