If I may I’d like to direct you to read about Save the Children’s campaign to highlight breastfeeding as a key tool to battle infant hunger and mortality. Brodie turns 4 next week and there’s nothing like the celebration of a birthday to bring the memories of those early days back to you. I like […]
This is probably the recipe I bake more than anything else. It’s not fancy, but it is delicious and contains no tea. I had my camera ready to take a picture when it came out of the oven. My battery was flat though and by the time it was charged and ready to use this […]
Remember this?, well it was time for another go. We have another wedding and another dress which needs poofing. This time I made it up as I went along and thankfully it turned out great.

I’m quite sure this is exactly what Heaven smells like. I’m guilty of browsing recipes on the internet and then never actually following […]

When Greig went to uni in 1997 every evening, when I got home from school the first thing I did was fire up my Dad’s dial-up modem so I could check if I had an email from him. I could start it then go away make my tea have a bath and do my homework […]
