My weekend in Dublin

Around this time last year, my brother got a spangly new job and he and his girlfriend moved to Ireland. Being the bad sister that I am, up until now we had yet to visit, which is part due to the crazy Ryanair pricing and part hectic hecticness. We arrived late Friday night, spent a […]

A couple of days away….

……….Mr M has been working a silly amount of hours for the past few weeks in the final stages of a project, now it’s delivered, he decided we should have a little break… Enter his favourite place: The Scarlet. It’s a little(ish, only 37 rooms) hotel in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, just along the coast from […]

Just a quick one…

Sorry, normal service will resume shortly. Mr M has been working very silly hours over the last few months, so now that project is over for now we decided to get away for a few days….. midweek….. as I couldn’t get any Fridays off until January! But here is a little picture of my cats. […]

The Quick Share…..

….today we had a little outing. An excursion of fun. Some friends of mine from work and I, along with Mr M, went to Go Ape! in Bracknell and had a play in the forest…. on Segways! Yep. It was awesome. They have some trails in the woods with bumps and hills and curves. To […]


…. I have been feeling like I need to post a little bit more often. So, I took heed from this post, and decided to share with you what is going on. I have been reading a lot of books on my kindle, especially by a writer called Sally Clements. They are romances, I love […]

Salted Caramel Truffles

One of the demos we went to over the weekend was by Edd Kimber. He made a couple of recipes from his new book, Caramelised Banana and Passion Fruit Tarts and Salted Caramel Truffles. I had a bad day. On top of a bad day yesterday. It’s shaping up to be a bad week. Time […]

Sunday: More Cake and Bake Show….

Today we went back for more lovely Cake and Bake Show action. The lady herself, Mary Berry, was going to be there. Along with more from Edd Kimber, and it was to his bakery demo that we first went: He was demoing his 20 minute croissant recipe, which I had seen on his website a […]

Today in London Town…..

….we got up, went to Borough Market for some breakfast: (that would be a Spinach and Feta Spelt Croissant – totally delicious) I also got in a couple of Christmas present purchases, but of course I’m not showing you those as that would be telling! We then headed over to Portobello Road Market, and at […]

I’m off….

….to London for the weekend! I’m leaving Mr M behind and heading off to the big smoke for a weekend with my Mum. Given how long we has been planning to go… I still messed up and left ticket purchasing until last minute, thankfully it all worked out ok in the end! We’re going to […]

….and Relax.

These past few weeks have been crazy busy, work has been stressful, people have been angry…. well overdue a break! So thankfully this weekend we went to see my cousin. Along with being amazingly wonderful people with super cute kids, they also live in rural Buckinghamshire in a lovely house with acres of woodland. Lush. […]
