But a cookery book I was given today on retirement ( one of several .... either Husband has complained or I look as greedy as , in fact , I am ) had some sterling advice at the end of a recipe for Croque Monsieur .

" For a more sober version make only one Croque Monsieur per person and serve with a small salad " .

Guardian Masterclass

Do you have a spare £299? (Inclusive of VAT and booking Fee!) And two spare days in October 2012?

If so, you could learn how to write a blog. The course will examine the essential questions which must be addressed if you wish to write a blog that people will want to read. Sessions cover how to find a voice, a subject and a form; the dynamic relationship between images and text and different strategies in transforming a conversation into an effective written evocation of a personality.

And there you were, thinking all it takes to write a blog is telling people about your dog, your aunt Mary's skill with baking cupcakes and the fact that the sun and moon rise and shine at different times of the day and night.
