Hello World!

This weekend I rekindled my love for Grapefruit Juice - I'd forgotten how wonderful it is! Just plonk in a few ice cubes, and voila, you have the perfect refreshing drink.

I also discovered how wonderful shredded lettuce is with plain yoghurt. It's so simple, but absolutely delicious and especially good with curry.
