Dessert shots, anyone?
Did a little test run of something I’m taking to a gathering next week (hence the skull glasses), that I hadn’t tried before – alcoholic jelly and custard shots. Like a downscaled version of the trifle I often make for friends, which I will blog one day, this features a dash of alcohol in both layers. As it features jelly, you’ll need to start preparing them the night before they’re needed.
You can always play around with the ingredients for this, but I used:
1 Blackcurrant jelly
Peach and tropical fruit flavoured vodka
Mickey Finn – the Chocolate, Fruit & Nut variety
Start off by preparing the jelly as you normally would, melting down into a liquid. Then, pour just a little vodka into each shot glass, then fill each one to halfway with the jelly, allowing space for the custard layer. Leave in fridge overnight…

Hertfordshire’s female Roller Derby team on recruitment drive
Hell’s Belles Roller Girls, Hertfordshire’s first flat track roller derby team, are on the lookout for new members, with a new training course starting on May 27th. If you’re over 18, have skating ability or an interest in learning, then they would like to hear from you.
For those not familiar with the sport – it’s a full-contact team sport played by two teams of five on traditional four-wheel roller skates, a sport originally made popular over in America that has also grown increasingly popular over here since 2006. The UK now has its own Interleague Championships, with 40+ teams from Oxford, Milton Keynes and Beds, amongst many others.
Hells Bells will be looking to recruit both new male and female members – any men over 18 interested in becoming a referee or non-skating official can also apply, but you must be female in order to train with and be part of the team. There is no upper age limit. Protective gear including helmets, pads and gum shields is always worn. Training takes place on Sundays and Wednesdays (please get in touch for more information on times etc.), at Birchwood Leisure Centre in Hatfield.
If this sounds like the sport for you, or if you’d like further information, please get in touch.

Ok, I’m new to this and I don’t really know what the customary way of saying hello is. Hmmm…..maybe open with a joke?
Ok, erm…Guy walks into a pub….erm…barman says “You’re barely funny on Facebook, think you’ll have better luck here eh? Idiot.”
Well that’s that knackered.
I’m more of a doer than a talker. Also, a better listener than a talker. I could fall over my words for England. So, a good start so far…..
Still with me so far? I’ll be using this to share random thoughts and ideas, occasionally jump on my soapbox, and also, plug the various musical acts I’m lucky enough to know, encounter online or see at gigs.
Feel free to get in touch, share opinions and links etc.
