"Recipe" Mackerel Salad

I don't always feel like a salad is much of a recipe really but here is one for you to try if you would like. It is not quite salad season yet, but this is a good one to try once summer arrives:

Mackerel Salad

Serves 4


1 pack smoked peppered mackerel
1 red onion
325g baby plum tomatoes
90g Mixed leaf salad/salad leaf of your choice
1 slice bread
1 clove garlic


1. Rub the bread with the garlic clove and then toast in a dry pan/griddle pan
2. When cooked and cooled combine the croutons with the rest of the ingredients (chop the tomatoes and pepper, pull the fish apart with a fork).
3. Eat.

This is why I don't tend to post salads. It is really not that hard to make!

Monday Music: Death Team

I am late to the Death Team party. This song came out in JANUARY.

But my friend played it to me last week and now it is on repeat along with the Unbreakable Kimmy Scmidt theme tune.

So here is the super NSFW song by Death Team with the mega NSFW title which you can read in the video clip.

Yes there is a lot wrong with it but it is catchy as heck and has computer game noises and frankly that is good enough for me this week.  It also sounds like a good theme tune for my currently fictional girl gang. Who's in?

You take you with you wherever you go

The last 12 months has contained some very tough stuff. Stuff I did not want to blog about. I did not want to write about the horrible things that happened to me. Or about the times I was horrible and did or said horrible things. I don't particularly want to look back on those moments and record them for posterity.
What I do want to keep a record of is that I got through it and now it feels like things could be good again. When we moved I took all the things that made the year a struggle with me but I also took all the things that make me super mega awesome with me too.
Basically right now I know I am okay. I am not fully settled or relaxed but Edinburgh now feels like home. I don’t know when it happened but it did.
Last year things took a massive downward swing in the Spring. This year I feel that Spring could be the turning point towards things getting better, properly better. That is a pretty good feeling.
