Sweet and Smoky Chilli Jam

  Surprisingly, I haven’t found giving up sugar for Lent all that difficult. There are only eleven days to go until it’s over and although there are some things I could really fancy, like a big family sized bar of Dairy Milk, I’ve actually quite enjoyed it. I didn’t eat a great deal of added…

Like Mother Like Daughter

In many aspects of our lives, my mum and I couldn’t be less alike. On a weekly basis, we will say to one another β€˜are you sure we’re related’ because we have so many differences. For example, she is amazing at anything to do with arts and crafts. When I was little she would be…

I know I’m very much in the minority, but winter is my favourite season. Christmas is without a doubt the best time of the year and it wouldn’t be the same without icy temperatures, long dark nights and big cosy jumpers to snuggle up into.

Pancake day, or Shrove Tuesday, never gets missed in my house and yesterday was no exception with the particularly naughty addition of salted caramel sauce and…

Eek so here I am at last. For literally years now I have made so many blogs, written my first post (just like this one) and deleted it before anyone got a chance to see it. I’ve not been happy with the blog theme, the title, the appearance, the list goes on and on. There…
