6041-227©McAteer (2)“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There –  Lewis Carroll

This is where I ramble about the past, as well as trying out recipes, health and beauty treatments and other assorted advice from the annals of history, so you don’t have to.

Cabbages may be involved, Kings will almost certainly be mentioned. Facts from Kate are a definite and culinary and social disasters are probable.

In real life, I am social historian (with a specific interest in clothing and uniforms), working for the National Trust for Scotland. You can find out more about my academic interests here.
