It’s that time of year again. Have a look at who’s been honoured so far and read up on their influential works.
What do you think of this year’s winners?
It had been a long day of coding and I’d just split a bottle of wine. A quick meal was needed before a well-needed deep sleep. I love tastecard deals so I looked up local establishments and settled on the Chinese Cricket Club which offers a generous 50% off the bill.

Wednesdays are now exclusively reserved for a girlie catch up with #WineWednesdays- yes it’s now a thing!
