Orange Is The New Black Series 2

As part of my Netflix Stream Team duties every now and again I get invited to the launch of a new series. However as I’ve been under a rock for the past year, I haven’t caught up with half the cult series. Basically if it’s not a cartoon character based series, I probably haven’t seen …

Gluten Free Bargains In Lidl

I do try to eat a lower gluten diet than most. Simply because it doesn’t always agree with me.  Still, it is expensive to eat certain things if you’re on a gluten-free diet and Lidl have some gluten-free bargains this week that are well worth a look.
