15 Years a Blogger!

In what seemed like a quirky and innovative exercise back in 2004, today marks 15 years exactly since I began blogging.

Frank’s – A Hidden Gem

Bev & Julie picked us up tonight for a journey into ‘old’ Kettering. More specifically, Frank’s Pizzeria located in Havelock Street.In spite of living in Kettering for over 20 years, we’d never discovered Frank’s! The establishment has apparently been in business since dinosaurs roamed the one-way system here, and although Frank is now looking down…
