Blog – 29 March 2014


Obviously this week saw the start of MasterChef.  I am overwhelmed by all your positive comments.  It goes without saying, if you didn’t watch it, it wouldn’t be on, so a huge thank you.  For my part, I love it.  I love doing MasterChef, more now than I did when we started 10 years ago.  It’s just a lovely thing to be part of and I’m proud of it.

Ideal Home Show

This week has also seen me bouncing around the tables at my café at The Ideal Home Show.  Now that has been great fun, especially if I don’t drive and I have the odd glass of wine. When I say odd, and I am sure you understand the dilemma, how do you decide which customers to have or not have a glass of wine with!  Anyway, I enjoyed meeting up with so many lovely people.

Health, Diet and Fitness

I am giving serious thought to having a health, diet and fitness site.  I love fitness now.  My life has been transformed in the last couple of years and I would like to move more and more into health and fitness, I just enjoy it, simple as that.  Working with my trainer is really good fun.  It has bought huge benefits, I am fitter and stronger now than I have ever been and I am 50 this year.  Anyway, I will of course let you know how things develop.

Gregg and AlfieAlfie

There has been a new addition to the family, no don’t tell The Sun that Anna is pregnant!  Everybody say “hi” to Alfie (AKA dog Wallace) our English Bull Terrier [include photo of dog].  He is 8 weeks old and he already weighs 7.5 kilos.  That is going to be some seriously big doggy!


My dinner of the week was Le Gavroche.  It has always been and continues to be a class act.  I have never met an establishment so skilled on filling you up with wine and naughty food, what a joy.
