As children we cut the stems, put them in water, and they would curl up into weird and wonderful shapes. We would try and sell them to passers by. Now I eat the leaves and the stems. If I am brave I add some burdock leaves, which takes me right up to my bitter taste threshold. But it's seasonal detox.

I always wonder what I will be when I grow up. I know at 33 that is a strange thing to wonder but I really don't feel like a grown up at all, so it is something that I do think about. Of course, top of the list is a Princess (if you didn't guess by the name of my blog) but I don't think Prince Harry is going to be looking for a chubby bride anytime soon!
