Blossom Tree Pictures

A few months ago, we did some Autumn Tree pictures. Today, in the ultimate act of wishful thinking, and an attempt to will something into existence, we decided to do the Spring version, with pink blossom, instead of Autumn leaves. The Boy wanted to know why we didn’t do Winter, but that would basically just… Read More »

Easy Homemade Pizza

I love baking bread, I love cooking from scratch and I love pizza. Yet, for some reason, I have never made my own pizzas. I’ve brought store bases, and then added our own toppings, but I’ve never made the bases myself. So today, when The Boy said, “Can we have pizza for lunch?” and we… Read More »

My Happy List #3

Another one? Happy again? Well, as it turns out, when you sit down and think “what made me happy this week?” instead of dwelling on what was wrong, there is quite a lot to be happy about. This week is half-term for us. Which I always kind of dread. I know that sounds awful, but,… Read More »

The Liebster Award

The Lovely Autumn’s Mummy has nominated me for a Liebster award. Which was an honour, once I’d googled it and found out what on Earth it was! The Liebster award is apparently a way for bloggers to share the love. We get nominated by another blogger that thinks we are worthy (thanks!). We then have… Read More »

Our Visit to The Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds

We love The Royal Armouries Museum. Hunky Husband took me for the first time a few years ago. We’ve been quite a few times since. Hunky Husband is a big History nerd, and builds little solders in his spare time (of which, there is not enough). So, this is obviously one of his favourite places.… Read More »

How to Keep Fit, When You Hate Exercise

I go through phases with exercise. When I get into running, I love it. Same with swimming, and Pilates. But, if I have a few weeks off, I fall out of love, and I don’t ever want to do it again. Then I have to go through the whole forcing myself back into it thing.… Read More »

Ideal Housework Jobs for Six-Year-Olds

I think it’s important for children, and in some cases, husbands (mine is very good, as I’m sure are many others!) to help out with housework. It is after all, their house. The Boy has always been pretty good at it. He gets pocket money, but not for housework really, just for “being good”. This… Read More »

Toilet Roll Tube Robots

Regular readers, will be aware that we love a good toilet roll tube craft in our house. We never throw them away, as their such a great crafting resource, there is so much you can make from a toilet roll tube. If you’re doubting this, have a look at my Princess Leia! We haven’t been… Read More »

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 folk, 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 »
