We went to see David Hockney‘s latest show ‘A Bigger Picture’ at Royal Academy of Arts on a cold day in mid-winter. It has been a while since I last went to the countryside as it just seems to be dull and cold most of the time.

This show has been widely anticipated and was said to be likely to be as popular as the National Gallery’s exhibition for Leonardo De Vinci. How was it? Click here to find out >>

Hmmm. How can I review a designer orange peeler gadget? I can write I think it’s very clever, very simple and works brilliantly, or I can just show you in a video:

I peel an orange everyday, and after peeling around 100 with the Apostrophe I can certainly say I’d hate to go back to using a regular knife to do it. The only bad thing about it, is it shows up how messy your kitchen is, it’s so small it can hide anywhere!

The Alessi promotional material shows people carving intricate designs into their oranges, I’ve given it a go, and it didn’t really float my boat.

So in summary: good at peeling oranges, as way of decorating your oranges: why would you?!!
