Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 3rd March 2021

A Twitter follower told me that Come Dine With Me is to be repeated - yet again - this Sunday on More4.

I’ve lost count of how many times the programme has been repeated - if only we got repeat fees!

The programme has to be over 10 years old because my son - though edited out of the programme - chose the wines and served them - and he went to Australia 10 years ago

I remember the recording because we had heavy snow and it complicated matters when one had to wait around before being allowed in to a house - yes we were in cars but they grow cold after a while.

I had wanted to invite a friend to play the harp and then thought it might look too posh. Donal Mcintyre had a guitarist so if he could do it, so could I and went ahead and asked my friend to play. He was a great hit I’m happy to say especially with the person I'd least expected to enjoy harp music.

It was a fun programme of which to be a part. By the time they got to me the production team were running out of time so asked me to pre-prepare everything for the meal. I am a relatively organised cook and measure out ingredients in advance but when it came to the Cheese Soufflé I forgot the all important Cheese! Loved the VO artist - he was very good and very funny.

If you watch it, hope you will enjoy. Jan
