Sticky toffee pudding.

In the spirit of easing. my way back it normal life, I thought I’d pop up a recipe post. And I know, I know… Most of the world is on some sort of ‘New year, new me’ health kick, but seen as I’m all about balance, I thought I’d entice you over to the sweet […]

Real life, real problems.

*Caution, if public expressions of sadness aren’t your thing, you should probably avoid this one – Normal DIY/FOOD/LIFESTYLE posts shall resume shortly* — I don’t often stray too far into my personal life over on here, however today I’m going to share something quite serious. One week ago, I had a phone call that made […]

The year of seasonal living.

I’ve always had a fairly simplistic approach to life. I, like most have a dream, my dream is to build a big beautiful house (New England/ranch style) out in the middle of nowhere, to have a flock of hens, maybe a couple of pigs, probably a goat… a library, a vegetable patch I can tend […]

2016. The best of this year.

Ahh 2016.  it’s been a pretty crazy year. In normal life I’ve been trying to rear the children into being a less feral state, I’ve been jumping from health kick to ‘how much fried food can I eat in 24 hours’. And I’ve been trying to figure out what the hell I want to do […]

Christmas Traditions.

Like most families, we have our own Christmas traditions. Ours mainly centres around Christmas eve. Christmas day is jam packed with family and so Christmas eve is our night, just the four of us. This is why every year, we (I) prepare a christmas eve box. I’ve seen just how popular these have become, and […]

Port & Sage Chicken liver pate.

Chicken liver pate is a massive hit in our house, it really does make the most delicious snack. Or even Supper, which is what I’ve planned for Christmas Eve. With it being for Christmas though, I thought I’d fancy up my original recipe, by adding some port and sage. YUM it really is delicious, served […]

Our handmade Christmas tree.

I am very particular about my christmas tree, i’d love to be one of these mums that turns the dressing of the christmas tree into a family event, but no. Just no. I cant cope with the cluster of baubles, the uneven-ness of decorations. I like it orderly. So, last year I thought i’d let […]
