BEN’S BLOG: ‘Clutching at straws’

ben_keith_team-150x150burrell[dropcap]B[/dropcap]log, I have received a rather pained telephone call, from Peter Burrell (right), friend of Star. Peter has thrown himself down an icy mountain and broken several of his ribs. Poor chap, we send him our love.

Unfortunately, for Peter, he clearly hadn’t read one of my previous blogs, entitled; ‘Skiing = No Value’.

Yes, Blog, its silly season again, I’m afraid. Employers all over the country are currently wearing the burden, of Staffs calling in, on their first day, due back to work, making an unlucky-voice, to inform their pay-masters that they will need some time off sick (paid, obviously) to get over a new self-inflicted injury. Yet more injustice for this country’s long-suffering employers!

In other news:

clutchMyself and Belindabelle recently fancied some chicken and chips. So we headed out East, to try ‘Clutch’, a new Facebooker/Trendy restaurant, that has opened, just off Columbia Road, in Hackney. Oh dear, oh dear, this REALLY was AWFUL. Granny and granddad’s cutlery was predictably being used, but the friendly staff that greeted us, made the visit seem promising.

On to the food…god knows what they coat the chicken in, as it just tasted dry and wholly unappetising. We ordered some chicken-wings on the side, and they completely missed the target too; sloppy and under-cooked. The chocolate dessert, ever so slightly took the pain away, but I certainly won’t be revisiting. Clutch. Can’t believe, that even the Trendies, will miss how insubstantial this place is. 1.

Over and out, B x
