Homemade Jammy Dodgers

For years, The Boy has claimed not to like jam. I do not know where he got this from. Then, for some reason, a few weeks ago he had a jammy dodger at school. We now have to buy them every week, and when I asked what he’d like to bake during half term, he… Read More »

Perfect American Pancakes

I love pancakes. The Boy didn’t when he was little, but does now. The girl is confused by them, she enjoys stabbing them with her fork but doesn’t seem to want to put them in her mouth. So, basically, I’ve just eaten 10 pancakes! I love a nice flat thin, British, pancake, but for some… Read More »

And the only card I could find was quite a small square. So, we needed a smaller word. With Valentines approaching, love seemed the obvious choice.… Read More »

Sixth Birthday Gift Guide

The Boy is 6 on Friday. Which I can’t believe. It has gone so fast. Especially the last few years, which have absolutely flown by. Finding the right gift can be difficult. In some ways, I like his toys now. They are more interesting. His books for example, I actually enjoy reading with him. We’re… Read More »

Home Date Night Ideas

My parents don’t live near by and Hunky husband’s parents spend some time abroad. Friends also have young children, or live far away, so our date nights out, alone, are limited. Nights in together are also limited, as he works until 9pm most nights, and one of his nights off is usually busy with kid… Read More »
