Ohhhh, we have a storm on the way and for some reason I’m a little bit excited about that. Fortunately it’s been downgraded from a hurricane and I hope no damage is done over the country but it will shake up the system a bit and my garden needs watering! It has been so dry […]

Food shopping is both an art and a science, with different practical and creative influences playing their parts in how we tackle it.

My twins will be celebrating their 6th birthday midweek next week, they are extremely excited about it and have been writing ‘Who to invite?’ lists since last October so they are extremely organised. They have been throwing the odd hint of gifts into conversation (basically anything from the Disney Frozen range) and which cake they’d prefer […]

A lot of schools have already broken up for the summer break but if you’re like us, we’re waiting until the 24th July! Ridiculous really when you think continental schools broke up on the 6th June.
