Issue 1; The Yard, Faversham - The Review

Goats Cheese Salad (with bacon)
by T W Coombs

Firstly I would like to just let you know this isn't an actual food review, I know I have dragged you in with false pretences and for this I am sorry.  This is more of a recommendation of a cafe/bistro of such greatness that it deserves a mention.  I live in a market town called Faversham in Kent, so when I read magazines, websites etc. I am always told to go to this place and that place in London.  Great, so I need to travel for a couple of hours to get a sandwich, I am sure it is very nice but still, that is a bit much.  So I have thought to give mentions of my favourite places to go and eat in the same vein as the usual London recommendations. So here goes.

Issue 1; Winter is Coming

by T W Coombs

With everyone talking about politics I could only really think of one thing, what to wear this winter? With the weather changing, the rain sliding in, it made me think I haven't thought about my winter wardrobe, I know it is a first world problem but many of us live in this world and have these issues to deal with.  I changed my usual summer styling this year and got rid of a lot of clothes that just weren't me, it was time to put away the rubbish, for good.  Of course this has left a huge hole in the wardrobe, so when I thought what is my new look for winter to be? My brain froze.  So I had a few thoughts and decided to share, after some research into the fashion world, what is in and is easy enough to accomplish.

Issue 1; Messing About on The....Canal

By T W Coombs

The question is can you live in a tube with four people? I shall explain. Summer holidays in the UK don't usually involve much sunshine, cheap beer or having to change your money up into any currency.  But it can involve water sports, well, I say sports more of a boating jolly.  Was it a huge yacht with staff and taking control of the open seas I hear you cry? No, it wasn't it was a forty foot canal boat on the not so open Warwickshire canals, the Grand Union heading south to be precise.
