I'm getting a lot more features to write nowadays. Which is great news for the portfolio, and not so great for the workload. Ho hum!
Okay, so it's not War and Peace, but I am quite happy with this one...

We recently published a Bath Life spin-off entitled Frome Life... which was – can you guess? – about Frome. I was responsible for the recipe pages, news and our Frome Lives interview.
I won't post the recipes on here, because I'm not sure that the restaurants would appreciate that, but here is my interview with University of Bath lecturer and Frome photographer, John Beeching... and also one of my news pages.

I've just realised how much of a fibber I look by posting a blog saying that I can't eat gluten followed by two restaurant reviews in which I appear to be consuming bread, pasta, noodles... and basically anything made of wheat.
Just to clear it up (not that anyone reads this blog, so I really don't have to – but anyway...) I generally don't eat anything with gluten in, but when I'm eating out I give in to my cravings and suffer for it for the next few days. This isn't to be recommended, but it would be a pretty boring review if I just ordered risotto or a salad every time.
However, now that I am on a SERIOUS diet (yes, that needed capping up) I suspect that it'll be salads all the way. Two stone to lose in ten weeks. Can I do it? In one word... no.

Now, I'm not completely happy with this one, as it is a little bit gushing but unfortunately it's pretty difficult to avoid the sales speak when you're trying to make a property sound desirable. Luckily, this one is a genuinely nice house (I'd buy it if I had several hundred thousand going spare). Some of the others are, shall we say, less interesting.

And there's loads more where that came from! But don't worry... I won't put them all up.
It's strange reading these back now, because I can see that my writing style has developed quite a lot, but I'm still quite pleased with them nevertheless.
All in all, I worked on about ten issues of the magazine as a freelancer, before I jumped ship from Future.
