ben_keith_team-150x150[dropcap]B[/dropcap]log, I have a treat for you…

Whitstable has become a real favourite of mine. Belindabelle has been away for the week, in Spain, and I have made my way down here for a brief escape with some friends. The winding high street and lanes off it, the quirky and coloured designs of the fisherman’s cottages, and the independently owned boutiques, eateries, and book shops make for a unique and delightful little town. (They keep the corporate people out here, in force.)

Disaster struck though, Blog! Wheelers is closed for the weekend and we had to make a second choice. The Chop and Oyster House, in Herne Bay, was the answer, and what a replacement it made. A faultless meal, from start to finish, was served up, and we loved every moment of the evening. This was somewhere to remember, and certainly return to, and scores a 9. Just missing out on a slightly higher mark, due to the Portions Police doing a drive-by during the starter, they didn’t quite stop though. (There are few 10’s, Blog: Oslo Court (NW1), The Colony (W1), Bota Fumeiro (Barcelona), English’s (Hove), and the best; the gone but never forgotten…Chez Bebert, in Tenerife.)

In other news:

cherieSo, Cherie Blair, the champion of women’s rights, has sacked a female employee that worked part-time, due to her not taking a full-time role. On starting, Mrs Blair was informed that her new member of Staff couldn’t start pre 9.30am, due to the school-run. However, plans changed, and Cherie decided that her single-mother employee’s working hours should do too. ‘No can do’ was the response that came back, and the unfortunate lady was shown the door. This will be an interesting one to see play out in the media. Like all lefties – Mrs Blair has proved that she’s ruthless, and not quite so holier-than-thou, as soon as the tables have turned.

Over and out, B x
