The Craft room re-dec.

I was supposed to get this post up weeks ago, but then I kept buying little bits and bats to add to the room, I was putting it off until everything was finished. Then I realised this would be an ongoing project, I don’t think it will ever be finished.  If I don’t show you … [Read more…]

Cheesecake brownies.

    As with every week Wednesday was bake off day. Word seems to be spreading amongst friends that I make treats at this time of week, and so we had a few extra visitors to settle down and stuff our faces with my sweet treats, while watching GBBO. Knowing I was having a few … [Read more…]

Autumn.

  Autumn is my favourite time of year. I do love the beautiful warm, activity packed days of Summer. But I’m naturally a hermit, my home is my sanctuary and If I don’t have too, I’d prefer to just not go anywhere. During the Autumn months, its cold, grey, wet and generally miserable. This makes … [Read more…]

Boston cream cupcakes.

Its supposed to be this big ‘thing’ but really it just marks another year of your life gone… God i’m depressing. Ha. Ha. I do enjoy my birthdays … [Read more…]

Always a day for celebration.

    Almost daily you’ll see announcements on social media that its some national day or other. Yesterday was international Lazy day, the day before International book lovers day. It got me thinking, firstly who makes up these days? also is there some sort of list, so I can be aware of all these weird … [Read more…]

Weekend Brunch: Blueberry Pancakes.

I woke last Sunday morning with a craving for pancakes.. Not our usual british Sugar and lemon version, but the lovely, fluffy American variety. This was strange seen as I had never made nor had I actually ever eaten them before. Luckily I chased that craving straight to my kitchen. I found an amazing recipe … [Read more…]

What i’m reading: July.

I love reading, ever since I was little, i’ve been fascinated by stories and how easily I get sucked into these other worlds. Its my love of reading that spurred me on to write. One of my life goals is to one day be a published author. A very long way off, but until then, … [Read more…]
