Quick Midweek Supper: Toast Hawaii

If you’ve grown up or lived in Britain, chances are you will be familiar with ‘beans on toast’, that quick stop, put-together-in-minutes supper when you’re short on time and everyone is hungry. My kids loves baked beans – especially the little one, he’ll eat a whole tin if you’re not careful, he doesn’t even wait […] Read more…

A Guilty Pleasure – Solo Travel Without My Kids

{Friday Five} Books for First Time Swimmers

It’s been just over a year now, since our eldest son started swimming lessons. Spaces in after school classes are hard to come by in Berlin, but we managed to snag one.
