My 3 year old has been going through a very loving stage. It’s EXTREMELY cute when she says “You’re my best friend mummy” or “your dress is so pretty mummy.” The only thing with 3 year olds are that the fickle sods change their mind in a heartbeat. I asked her at soft play, “who’s your best friend?” She said, “…ummm probably that girl I … Continue reading Roots & Fruit Cakes
I find it so strange how a set of eyes can bring anything to life.

And this weekend it’s not just the kids- I’ve had some kid-free time at BBCs big … Continue reading Skinny Doughnuts
It may not come as a surprise that I don’t give parenting advice, ever. Cooking queries? Yes. Recipe suggestions? Of course! What to watch on Netflix? I’ll write you a list! But parenting advice- not from me. There’s plenty of it about if you want it from Facebook groups, forums, Instagram, even strangers in the supermarket. I find though that there’s so much advice that … Continue reading Tropical Fruit Cake
