Friday night cocktail? Don’t make it a mission, man…
It’s surprising how little things – like a shoelace – can bring a traveller undone in a foreign land.
Add some snap, crackle and crunch to your morning with John Box’s ‘Definitive Dad’s Breakfast’.
With the days of drink, dope and durries well behind him, our correspondent finds modern coffee really gets him going.

It’s close… Beer O’Clock, that is! Can we tempt you with a Two Birds Brewing Pale Ale, the first in Peter Mitcham’s ‘Gateway Beers for Dads’ series?
