40 Things before 40

40 Things before 40

I turned 30 earlier this year, does this make me a grown up? As a younger person I wouldn’t have believed it possible to be 30 and still not feel like a grown up, but I’m not, I still don’t even know what I want […]

Autumn Scavenger Hunt

Autumn Scavenger Hunt

The Plan Today we spent a lovely morning in the park. I printed some scavenger hunt sheets out from The Woodland Trust. They’ve got lots of really fun, simple activities for all seasons. You can filter them by age, season and activities type (crafts, outdoors etc) […]

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese

Stew and Dumplings

Stew and Dumplings

Now me and Hunky Husband make slightly different stew. I should give you his, with him being a chef. But mines better. I’ve never made a dumpling, however, so they’re his, but I think he just reads it off the suet packet. Feel free to […]

Chilli Flakes are REALLY hot!!

Chilli Flakes are REALLY hot!!

Now I know what you’re all thinking, of course, they are, they’re chilli flakes. I’ve been making my chilli con carnie for years, it’s like my go-to meal to make for people. I’ve always just used fresh chilli and powder, but for whatever reason this […]
