We’ve had a fabulous break in 𝗥𝗵𝗼𝗱𝗲𝘀. It’s been just the time we needed to unwind. I’ve enjoyed spending the time as a family.⁣
⁣
I love being in a warm country, those warm nights and the smell of the heat off the pavement: it makes me 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆. Greece is so beautiful and the people are so friendly.⁣ A huge thank you to everyone at @blueseavillage for making us feel so welcome.

🩷 My beautiful family…

I love this photo, it’s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, it’s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

We had a buffet breakfast at a local restaurant, 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗸 around Priory Marina and then back to my sister in laws for afternoon tea and bunny cuddles.⁣
⁣
So, it’s basically revolved around food & walking. 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁 👌🏻⁣

🍩 Anyone else looking 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱 to some sunshine and a break from routine next week? ⁣
⁣
I have officially completed the academic part of my 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲. I have to now wait until mid July to get results. I’ve never been so nervous. But I’m glad it’s done. I nearly gave up about 20 times over the last 5 months when we lost the pups 🐾 , but I kept going… ⁣
⁣
So, I’ve now got half term to relax and enjoy some well earned time with my 𝘧𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘢𝘮. Goodness knows the hours I’ve lost spending time studying over the last 3 years. 𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝗜 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱𝗻’𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁 & I’m looking forward to sunny adventures this Summer.⁣

This photo was from our trip to 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗲. It’s a lovely memory of a happy holiday. I’m hoping we’ll make lots of new memories and big smiles over the coming weeks.⁣

Dr Oetker sugar and spice Easter nest biscuits #recipe

Dr Oetker sugar and spice Easter nest biscuits #recipe

This is a brilliant recipe for adding a little spice and fruit to your Easter baking. I like the recipe as it's a subtle drop of spice and yummy currants, the decoration is fun for the children and you can have these finished off within the hour. Isla enjoyed decorating the biscuits and eating the chocolate icing too, who wouldn't? Dr Oetker have many Easter recipes online if you want to try some Easter baking with the children this weekend. VIEW the POST

Baileys pancake recipe – for the grown ups #dontmindifIBaileys

Baileys pancake recipe – for the grown ups #dontmindifIBaileys

This is a great recipe for a grown up alternative! The kiddies had chocolate spread, banana and also a little strawberry sauce. Mummy's favourite is lemon and sugar. Daddy loves Bailey's and I thought this recipe would be right up his street - especially with the added banana's and walnuts. This is a fantastic recipe for any dessert, a great one to show off if you are hosting too.  VIEW the POST

Snowdon pudding #recipe

A famous dessert in the area of Snowdonia, in Wales, is the Snowdon Pudding. Cottages.com sent me the recipe and I had to try it as I just love anything that can be served with custard. It is similar to a steamed pudding, made with suet and of course this recipe is vegetarian. We love the Snowdonia area and the weather in Wales makes it easy to enjoy this wonderful dessert. 

#MyKindOfFood Chocolate and Coconut Pie

#MyKindOfFood Chocolate and Coconut Pie

When I was asked to try out one of John Torode's recipes from his new cookbook, My Kind Of Food, I jumped at the chance. But then it hit me that this recipe is going to be complicated, its John, he's a fantastic "master" chef! But I was pleasantly surprised that despite my lack of experience in the kitchen, I was able to produce the pie and it was scrumptious.  VIEW the POST

I have an abundance of cooking apples in my garden at the moment, our apple tree is blooming and producing a vast amount of fruit - which is great. I have always wanted an apple tree. We also have a blackberry bush and a plum tree (they are not ripe yet though). VIEW the POST

Sweet Treats Waffle Stick Maker

We were sent an amazing Sweet Treat Waffle Stick Maker recently to have some fun with making yummy waffle sticks. I thought it would be a brilliant way of having a dessert and getting Noah involved in making and decorating – that’s the fun part at that age! We made our waffles, well Daddy made them in the Waffle Stick Maker and me and Noah decorated them and ate them… yum yum. The recipe we used was a really simple one – Ingredients: 250g (9 oz) plain flour 1 dessertspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons caster sugar 1 teaspoon salt 450ml (16 fl oz) semi skimmed milk 2 eggs 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Preparation (5 mins): 1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add milk, eggs and oil; mix well. 2. Pour desired amount of batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. The idea of…
