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 »

40 Before 40: An Update

At the beginning of my blogging journey, I posted 40 before 40. A list of things I wanted to do before I turned 40. Well, I’ve just celebrated my 31st birthday. Which means that they are only 9 years left. I realise 9 years is still a long time but if I don’t want a… 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 »

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 »
