Easy Lemon Cupcakes

I can’t do cake. However, after the successes of my lemon drizzle and chocolate fudge loaf cakes, I’m feeling a little more confident and I absolutely love lemon flavour on sweets so I thought I’d have a go. We had some lemons in but I didn’t fancy another lemon drizzle. Partly because I can’t seem… Read More »

Chocolate Orange Brownies

As anyone that visits a lot, or follows me on Instagram will know, I love brownies. We make them quite regularly and love to try out new flavours. Chocolate orange is a combination I absolutely love in any form, so when we went to Aldi and found some amazing Aldi own chocolate orange segments I… Read More »

Our Day at the Tropical Butterfly House

I was my birthday recently. 31, I’m not entirely sure how this has happened to me. Surely, I was 19 a few months ago? Anyway, for my birthday, we normally go to Whitby for the day. I’d never been until Husband took me for my birthday one year and it’s become our lovely birthday tradition.… Read More »

Chilli and Lime Tuna Steaks

I love tinned tuna. But, tuna steaks have never been a favourite. To be honest I find them a little bland. However, I’ve been really enjoying fish lately and looking out for new flavours I can try and new ways to use fish in my diet. So, when I saw some awesome tuna steaks I… Read More »

My Happy List #9

The last two happy lists have been very much “it’s been a bit of a crap few weeks but let’s look at the positives” so I’m very pleased to say the last week has been amazing! I certainly feel like after a few months of things being a bit up and down we were due… Read More »

The Bobsy’s Birth Story

The Bobsy is 18 months old, so her birth story isn’t quite as late as The Boy’s was. Nor is it as dramatic. It was almost perfect in the end. Pregnancy The Bobsy was sort of planned. Yet not quite. I had had a coil fitted but it fell out in December. We decided that… Read More »

My Happy List #8

I’ve been terrible at doing these, haven’t I? which is rubbish, because I really enjoy siting and writing about happy things. Life just sometimes gets in the way and you forget to stop and reflect on the good things. Writing a Happy List is meant to force me. But then I forget to do it!… Read More »

Father’s Day Crafts

Father’s Day is approaching. I’m generally not very organised when it comes to Father’s Day crafts. It’s my birthday the week before and you know, priorities. But, this year we got ourselves together a bit and spent a day over half-term doing some Father’s Day crafts. We’ve got lots to do as well. My Dad died a few… Read More »

Red Onion Jam and Cheddar Focaccia

I haven’t made any fancy bread for ages. I’ve been making all my own burger rolls for burger Thursday, but haven’t made anything less basic for a while. So, I had a look through the fridge for some inspiration and found what’s left of our red onion jam from when I made red onion jam… Read More »
