The Fal crew and the Brighton crew went to Truro today. Might sound like a lot but it was just four of us.

Thinking about going vegan again. Made  cheeseless pizza. Even for something where cheese seems essential I thought it was quite tasty.

Philp’s is known for the best pasties in Kernow. I dont’ like pasties except for the ones that either Ben’s Mom or I make.
