Feeding, feeding, feeding

Right, let’s just get on with this, shall we? I’ve been putting off and putting off writing this post for a very long time now and enough is enough. So, breastfeeding. I’m not breastfeeding anymore. It hurts me to write that, which is pointless because I know that I did it for much longer than … Continue reading

Feeding the family

This evening I have been making one of my family’s main-stay dinners and it inspired me to share it and some of our other family favourites with you. For us, if a meal is tasty, can easily be bulked out to eat for a few meals and adapted to be made with what we’ve got … Continue reading

Recipe: sausages and lentils

This is one of my and Tom’s favourite recipes. We’ve been making it for years and can now do it with our eyes closed (I don’t mean we literally do that, you understand) and play around with it a bit. If you like sausages and tomato sauces, you’ll love this. An excellent recipe for dinner … Continue reading


When we went down to the allotment today, look what we found! Success! Now we are desperately in need of some pumpkin recipes. Anyone? Oh, and for some perspective, this is how big the largest one is:

I came to the conclusion that it comes down to my food ethics: I like that the stuff … Continue reading

Abel and Cole veg box

For the last year or so, every two weeks we’ve been getting a veg box delivered from Abel and Cole. I signed-up when a man from Abel and Cole came to our door asking if we’d be interested in getting a box and offering some good incentives – a free bottle of wine and our … Continue reading

Showering the bride

I cannot tell you how excited I am that my gorgeous best friend Lucie is getting married in January (less than six months – yey!) and I am going to be her Maid of Honour. Technically, I should be her Matron of Honour as I’m an old married, but we’re ignoring that, for obvious reasons. … Continue reading

A new recipe

Although we would count ourselves as quite good cooks, I have to admit that Tom and I don’t often do a completely new recipe. But when this delicious sounding recipe came straight into my inbox via Stylist magazine‘s daily email, Emerald Street, on the same day that our Abel and Cole veg box arrived with … Continue reading
