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 »

Cheesy Lamb Burgers

I’ve for some reason only ever had minted lamb burgers. Which are great, but I find you so rarely see any variations when you eat out. Seen as Thursday is now burger day we decided to do something a little different. We had a really rubbish day, first finding out all the nice people that… Read More »

Cod and Chorizo Stew

I love fish. When we eat out I often look for fish on the menu and whenever we go to the beach I try as much fresh seafood as I can. I just love the flavours. Yet it’s something we rarely cook ourselves. At the moment, we’re making a real effort to have some fun… Read More »

Toilet Roll Tube Minions

I LOVE these. The toilet roll tube minions are definitely my new favourites. For some reason putting something on a toilet roll tube seems to make it instantly cuter and minions were pretty cute in the first place. The Bobsy is also slightly in love with our toilet roll tube minions. We watched Minions on… Read More »

The Boy’s Birth Story

The Boy is 6 so his birth story is coming very late. But, I’ve only been blogging for a few months and I love reading a good birth story. I think they’re lovely. But also, very useful to pregnant women looking for some real-life stories to help them to prepare. Because let’s face it, they’re… Read More »

Chicken Pox: A Tale of Two Children

Anyone that follows me on Instagram will know that The Bobsy has had chicken pox for the last week or so. You may also know that The Boy had them for a few weeks before. I wanted to write about our experience because I hugely underestimated how horrible it would be and I’d like to… Read More »

Homemade Blue Cheese and Red Onion Jam Beef Burgers

Now Husband is working these lovely new hours and we’re eating together more we’ve got time to be a little more creative. So, from now on (well technically from last week) Thursday shall be Burger Night. I love homemade burgers. Partly because Husband makes the burgers and I make the bread and other bits making… Read More »

My Happy List #7

Well, it’s been a pretty crap few months. Husband has been out of work for a while. He did get a new job which you might remember I mentioned in my last happy list. But, it didn’t work out (was in fact truly awful!) so he’s been searching once more. At some point, the stress… Read More »
